KUCHING, Nov 26: Sarawak United Peoples’ Party (SUPP) Stakan branch has urged the urban and Chinese voters to not be misled by the Democratic Action Party (DAP) again and risk being left out when Gabungan Parti Sarawak (GPS) forms the State government.

Its chairman Dato Sim Kiang Chiok said in line with the party branch’s recent resolution, it is important for the voters to understand the real reasons that they should be part of the decision making process.

He reminded that when the voters backed DAP in the 2018 general election, the party ended up not fulfilling their promises such as the 20 per cent oil and gas royalties, 50 per cent return of income tax collected from Sarawak and 30 per cent development fund from annual Federal budget for Sarawak and Sabah.


“Additionally, DAP did not stop the New Economic Policy (NEP) nor recognise the Unified Examination Certificate (UEC), the Bumiputera agenda was never abandoned and they did not do anything they promised Malaysians and particularly the Chinese, let alone Sarawak,” he said in a statement today.

Sim further called on Sarawakians to look at the recent Malacca State Election where the people have decided to choose stability and voted out the ‘frogging’ politicians.

“Sarawak will also follow suit and that means the GPS will most comfortably win, so why must the urban and Chinese voters suffer for DAP? Why not be in the government and be part of the solution?” he questioned.

He also explained that being in the government is equivalent to more allocation for development and improvement to the living condition, economic activities and generally better livelihood.

These, he said, are proven in Batu Kawa, Batu Kitang and other urban areas presently after they decided to stop supporting Opposition politicians.

“Urban voters need to know that Pakatan Harapan (PH) cannot form or change the State government, so we should not be mislead again to their lies on their ability to change the government.

“They cannot even reach consensus to use their common PH logo to contest in the coming State polls,” he pointed out.

Sim further said that a strong Sarawak needs all Sarawakians including the urban and Chinese voters to unite and subsequently keep away all the unwanted Malayan influence and control over State affairs by supporting GPS. — DayakDaily
