KUCHING: Sarawakians must never allow themselves to be misled by opposition political parties with their empty promises and unproductive rhetoric, said Sarawak United People’s Party (SUPP) Kota Sentosa branch chairman Wilfred Yap.

“Such empty promises and unproductive rhetoric are just a ploy to fish for support, especially when the current term of the Sarawak State Legislative Assembly (DUN) will automatically expire on Jun 6 under Article 21(3) of the Constitution of the State of Sarawak and elections must be held within 60 days after the dissolution of DUN under Article 21(4),” he said.

He hoped that Sarawakians would continue to support the farsighted vision and progressive policies of the current Gabungan Parti Sarawak (GPS) state government under the leadership of Chief Minister Datuk Patinggi Abang Johari Tun Openg.

“Sarawakians must stay united under GPS to stand up for our rights and speak with one voice with a common goal and objective for a modern and fully developed Sarawak,” he said in a statement today (Apr 14).

On another matter, he said he had recently carried out inspection and monitoring of resurfacing works at Taman Olive, Kota Sentosa to ensure the works were carried out properly by the contractor of the Padawan Municipal Council (MPP).

“The resurfacing works were carried out after requests were made by the residents,” said Yap, who is also SUPP Public Complaints Bureau (PCB) chief.

He assured that he would continue to serve as the eyes and ears of the community living in Kota Sentosa to ensure that infrastructure facilities were in good condition and properly maintained.

“SUPP PCB is always ready to lend a helping hand to anyone facing problems or who come across issues of public interest but are unsure of how to handle them,” he assured.

Anyone requiring assistance can call SUPP PCB at 016-7797688 or 082-246999. They may also directly visit the SUPP head office to request assistance.
