KUCHING, Sept 29: Deputy Chief Minister Datuk Amar Douglas Uggah Embas says Sarawak is ready to work with anyone who upholds the interest of the nation.

This was his response to recent political developments in Sabah where Sabah Perikatan Nasional (PN) chief Datuk Seri Hajiji Noor was appointed as the Chief Minister of Sabah following the conclusion of the Sabah State Election.

“Sarawak is always ready to work with anyone as long as this is in the interest of the nation.

“We always want political stability in Malaysia. That is why we had put our support behind Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin as our Prime Minister because any more instability is not good for the country,” said Uggah at a ceremony to hand over the Unit For Other Religion (Unifor)’s additional grant of RM1.5 million for the construction of the Anglican Diocese of Kuching’s House of Epiphany here today.

He also witnessed the signing of the construction agreement between Datuk Danald Jute, the Anglican Bishop of Sarawak and Brunei, and Kenny Ho, the chief executive of Leya Construction for the construction of the RM10 million-House of Epiphany within the compound of St Thomas’s Cathedral here.


In the just concluded Sabah election, PN along with Barisan Nasional (BN) and Parti Bersatu Sabah (PBS) won 38 out of 73 Sabah state seats.

The Warisan-Plus coalition led by former Chief Minister Datuk Seri Shafie Apdal won 32 seats, while the remaining three were captured by independent candidates. — DayakDaily
