KUCHING: The overwhelming support given by voters reflects the full assurance and confidence of the people in Chief Minister Datuk Patinggi Tan Sri Abang Johari’s leadership to lead Sarawak towards a high-income economy by 2030.

Deputy Chief Minister Datuk Amar Douglas Uggah Embas in highlighting this commended the chief minister for leading Gabungan Party Sarawak (GPS) towards a landslide victory in the recent state polls.

“We won 92.7 per cent or 76 out of 82 seats. We have created history! Never before, ever since independence, had a ruling party won with such a strong mandate and overwhelming support given by the voters.

“Congratulations to Datuk Patinggi Tan Sri Abang Johari,” he said in his speech during the GPS Appreciation Dinner held at the Borneo Convention Centre Kuching (BCCK), here on Wednesday (Jan 5).

Uggah also waxed lyrical for Abang Johari’s foresight, wisdom, and diplomatic skills to pave the way for the state election.

“The chief minister managed to convince and get the consent from Istana Negara through His Majesty (Yang di-Pertuan Agong Al-Sultan Abdullah Ri’ayatuddin Al-Mustafa Billah Shah) – to end the Emergency Proclamation in Sarawak in November 2021, instead of February 2022.

“Through this deliberation, Sarawak was able to hold its election in December 2021 to get a fresh mandate from the people,” he said.

In retrospect, he noted that the judgement and decision made by Abang Johari to hold the state election was “wise and fortunate”.

“The election was held just before the monsoon season arrived and before the emergence of a new COVID-19 variant of concern (Omicron).

“The timing could not have been more perfect!” he lauded.
