KUCHING, Dec 16: Gabungan Parti Sarawak (GPS) candidate for N28 Lingga Dayang Noorazah Awang Sohor has pledged to look after Lingga constituents with fairness should she win the seat in this State election.
Dayang Noorazah, 33, who is an accounting graduate and among the eight new faces from Parti Pesaka Bumiputera Bersatu (PBB), also promised that she would frequent the longhouses and villages in Lingga.
She made the pledge before GPS candidate for N37 Bukit Saban Datuk Amar Douglas Uggah Embas, Batang Lupar MP Datuk Rohani Karim, former Lingga assemblywoman Datuk Semoi Peri and 32 longhouse chiefs.
With regard to Dayang Noorazah’s promises, Uggah said he and Rohani would keep an eye to ensure the commitments are kept.
Meanwhile, Uggah noted the importance for all GPS State elected representatives to visit their respective constituencies and offer services regularly and fairly.
“The fact that some areas like in the Barisan Nasional (BN) days, still lack infrastructure and amenities is not the fault of the BN. It is the fault of the respective elected representatives who had failed to deliver.
“As a consequence, their ‘rakyat’ are the ones who suffer. We do not want this to continue in GPS,” he said during a public discussion on agriculture matters at Rh Matthew J Punpun in Gran Stumbin, Lingga here today.
On the Sarawak Election which will see voters going to the polls on Dec 18, Uggah said GPS has clear objectives for the State if it is reelected as the government.
“GPS under its president Datuk Patinggi Tan Sri Abang Johari Tun Openg has a very clear direction on what the coalition government under him wants to do for Sarawak in the next five years upon winning.
“The (other) contesting parties, none of their leaders have a track record like Abang Johari’s. GPS outshines them in performance and service. So give all your support to GPS,” he said. — DayakDaily
