PBB CONVENTION

SIBU: Members of Parti Pesaka Bumiputera Bersatu (PBB) have been urged to be dynamic and robust in explaining issues when campaigning in the 12th State Election.

PBB permanent chairman and State Legislative Assembly (DUN) Speaker Datuk Amar Mohd Asfia Awang Nassar said during campaigns, it was important to highlight the policies of the Sarawak government, defend its policies and highlight what have been achieved by the Gabungan Parti Sarawak (GPS) government.

He said the good points of GPS must be emphasised such as Sarawakians are free to practise their chosen faiths, welfare of the people being taken care of including the development plans that have been rolled out.

“For instance, the case (getting payment) of the state sales tax (SST) worth nearly RM3 billion, then in five years (it will be) RM15 billion, and this extra revenue will be used for development of the state.

“As such this government (GPS) deserves to be re-elected,” he said in his closing remarks for the election briefing session at PBB Sibu Convention held at Kingwood Hotel, on Saturday.

He said in Sarawak, the basic amenities people need are clean water, electricity, road, schools. As such the extra money from the state’s oil and gas would be used to develop these sectors.

“Now, some people say that the Malaysia Agreement 1963 (MA63) is irrelevant. It is relevant, because in Sarawak everywhere you go, the people ask for water, electricity, roads and schools infrastructure.

“Once we have the money from the oil and gas, then you can satisfy the demand of the state and its people,” he said.

Asfia also said most importantly was to ensure GPS would win in the election so that there would be continuous development in the state.
