The Berandau session organised by PRS Tamin Women receives overwhelming support from local woman folk.

TAMIN, Sept 26: Parti Rakyat Sarawak (PRS) women calls on Sarawakians to do away with politics of race and religions as well as those of vengeance and spite.

Instead, its chief Datuk Seri Doris Brodie said that Sarawakians should focus on politics of development that gives economic and social impact.

“Sarawakians must do away with politics of emotions and sentiments especially the ones that drum or tread on race and religious issues and also over spite, vengeance and anger as these do not augur well with our diverse nature in Sarawak.

“We must instead focus on politics of development that gives impact to both our economic and social growth,” stressed Doris at the Berandau session organised by the Education Bureau of PRS Tamin Women yesterday.

Doris who is also political secretary to the Chief Minister said Gabungan Parti Sarawak (GPS) is made up of leaders who are experienced and mature in politics.

“More importantly, they are people-centric and development-focused and our Chief Minister Datuk Patinggi Abang Johari Tun Openg is a leader for all races in Sarawak. These fare well with the needs and aspirations of Sarawakians,” said Doris.

On Tamin assemblyman Christopher Gira, Doris said he is an exemplary “Wakil Rakyat” as he is not only active on the ground but more importantly, farsighted and cares well the people of Tamin.

Meanwhile, Senator Rita Insol who was also one of the panel speakers at the Berandausession spoke on the topic regarding Sarawak rights and the Malaysia Agreement 1963.

Other panel speakers were Misiah Abdullah, PRS Women Education Bureau Chief and Donna Petrus, an EXCo member of PRS Women while Roseline Neging, Deputy Women Chief of PRS moderated the Berandau session.

The closing ceremony was officiated by Christopher Gira who acknowledged the participation and contribution of women in nation building.

He said women are very reliable and trustworthy and in so far as Tamin constituency is concerned, women voters play an important role in ensuring GPS success here in the forthcoming Sarawak Election. — DayakDaily
