KUCHING, Feb 20: Parti Bumi Kenyalang (PBK) believed that the political party may make a breakthrough by winning some rural seats at the 12th State Election (PRN12).

Its party president Voon Lee Shan in a press statement today said the party’s agenda for independence has gained momentum and was being accepted by voters.


He also asserted that smaller political parties such as PBK and Parti Sarawak Bersatu (PSB) were able to penetrate rural areas and, as such, the rural seats are no longer a safe deposit for the Gabungan Parti Sarawak (GPS) state government.

He opined that the recent flood problems and the inability of the GPS government to control and manage the Covid-19 situation in Sarawak effectively could cost vote swing among the voters.

“As I see it, no one party has an upper hand now. GPS is faulted for not able to provide roads and basic infrastructure in rural areas for the past 58 years.

“The landas season now has seen many rural roads not passable and had added anger against GPS,” he said.

Voon believed that there is no single political party which could win the upcoming state election.

Besides, he gathered that Sarawakian voters now realised Sarawak has been treated like a colony by the federal government although the state is not being colonised.

Hence, Voon believed that anything could happen at the upcoming state election and the political party stood a chance to win some seats during PRN12. — DayakDaily
