KUCHING, May 31: The Sarawak United Peoples’ Party (SUPP) Kuching branch and headquarters (HQ) will be holding flag-raising ceremonies on June 4, 2022, to commemorate the party’s 63rd anniversary.

According to SUPP Kuching branch publicity and information secretary Peter Pui, party members in the north, central, and southern areas, which include Miri, Sibu, and Kuching, will be connected simultaneously via an LED screen during the flag-raising ceremony at the headquarters.

He also mentioned that the event at the HQ will be streamed live on Facebook.

“Due to the significance of this ceremony, which signifies the birth of SUPP, it will be performed simultaneously throughout Sarawak.

“This year is significant because the party central has assigned the Kuching branch to organise, and we are the first to organise in the southern area.

“We have seven branches in the southern area, and the Kuching branch will take the lead this year, after which it will be passed down to other branches to organise in following years,” he said today at the SUPP Kuching Branch Press Conference, held at the party’s office at Jalan Petanak here.

Pui went on to say that, aside from the flag-raising ceremony, the Kuching branch has begun with reconnection events, with Reconnect 3.0 set to take place on June 5, 2022.

“Because of the Covid-19 pandemic, we want to reconnect with people politically, economically, and socially.

“The most important aspect of Reconnect 3.0 is to listen to what the public needs and how we can help them,” he explained.

In another discussion, Pui stated that the Kuching branch, with its new committee, is currently launching a few campaigns to call for a new membership drive to recruit more members, particularly the younger generation who will be tomorrow’s leaders.

“This coming general election (GE) is critical not only for our representation at the national level, but also for ensuring that the voices of new eligible 18-year-old voters are represented and heard.

“I am inviting and urging more Sarawakians, especially the youths and leaders of tomorrow, to be politically inclined so that they can have a stronger voice and lean towards a futuristic and hopeful future for Sarawak by becoming a member of the oldest political party in Sarawak,” he stated. — DayakDaily
