KUCHING: Petra Jaya incumbent Datuk Seri Fadillah Yusof has reminded all to adhere to the campaign ethics throughout the 15th general election (GE15).
The Gabungan Parti Sarawak (GPS) candidate stated that the process of campaigning and voting must be done ethically so it would run smoothly.
“Please avoid ‘main kotor’ (playing dirty). You have to remember if there are elements like that, you would be responsible to answer and be accountable later.
“We must compete and fight on the basis of the party, not based on individual feelings. We do not want to lose harmony,” he said when speaking to the media after the nomination process at SMK Petra Jaya here yesterday (Nov 5).
Fadillah, who is the GPS chief whip, expressed confidence that the campaign period in Petra Jaya parliamentary constituency would run smoothly based on the previous election.
He called for the GPS machinery to continue working and moving as one team to ensure a big victory in GE15.
“This is the time for us to fight and to ensure that the GPS gets a big victory in this election.
“This is the first time we are contesting under the GPS banner, so we need to make sure GPS wins in all 31 seats.
“The victory is not for me, but for the GPS government and we want to win big,” he said.
For the record, the Petra Jaya parliamentary seat is one of Parti Pesake Bumiputera Bersatu (PBB) strongholds.
In GE14, PBB contested under the Barisan Nasional (BN) ticket and won the Petra Jaya seat with a majority of 15,017 votes defeating two other candidates.
Fadillah is set to defend his seat once again and it will be his fifth term.
