KUCHING, Jan 5: Bersatu (Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia) Sarawak chief Senator Jaziri Alkaf Abdillah Suffian has pledged full support to the leadership of Chief Minister Datuk Patinggi Abang Johari Tun Openg and to assist Gabungan Parti Sarawak (GPS) to win convincingly in the coming State election.
“Bersatu Sarawak will give undivided support to the leadership of Chief Minister Datuk Patinggi Abang Johari Tun Openg and the State government and will assist GPS to have a more convincing victory in the coming 12th State election,” said Jaziri during a special interview with Bernama last night.
He stressed that he will hold fast to the principle of “politics of service” which is similar with the approach taken by Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin.
“The prime minster gives priority to the interests and well-being of the people and is not political. The ‘Caring’ budget which was passed by Parliament recently is a proof of the Prime Minister’s concerns for the people,” he said.
Jaziri also praised the initiative taken by Minister of Entrepreneur Development, Datuk Seri Wan Junaidi in providing incentives to improve the socio-economy of the local community.
“His efforts to develop cooperatives in houses of worship in Sarawak are very commendable because they are able to help improve the socio-economy of the local community that could be expanded throughout the country,” he said.
Jaziri who had just been appointed a senator recently reiterated that that the focus of Bersatu is to achieve the ‘Common Prosperity’ policy by reducing political maneuvering that is not benefiting the people.
“The main task of any political party is to fully focus on the welfare and well-being of the people. And there is much that is needed to be done such as assisting flood victims which had affected many states and on Covid-19 pandemic.
“The people will not listen to much political rhetoric but instead prefer a more secured livelihood,” he added. — DayakDaily
