KUCHING: Nearly 100 longhouse folk from Munggu Demam Undup have joined DAP. In a press statement Tuai Rumah Romeo Serit, who led the exodus to DAP said, “DAP is the right choice and platform for us as it is a member of Pakatan Harapan, which is now leading the federal government.

“And Leon is close to us, who in turn is close to the federal leadership. We believe he will channel our grievances to the leaders in Putrajaya.”

Leon meanwhile said, “We from DAP Sri Aman welcome our new members under the leadership of TR Romeo Serit. He is well loved for his vision in leading his longhouse folk and also very hardworking in elevating the welfare of his anak buah.

“I applaud his vision in not wanting to be left out from mainstream politics where a huge portion of welfare assistance for our rural folks comes from the federal government.”
