SIMANGGANG: Gabungan Parti Sarawak (GPS) remains calm, intact and unified, even in the face of economic uncertainties.    

According to Lingga assemblywoman Simoi Peri, even during the peak of the Covid-19 pandemic, GPS had remained calm while providing the best service to the people through various initiatives such as the Bantuan Khas Sarawakku Sayang (BKSS).  

“This is different from the opposition in Sarawak which have lost their thinking cap. They use a lot of perceptions to inflict losses on the people such as playing up the issue of Second Trunk Road which is to be constructed along the state’s coastal areas.  

“The GPS, comprising of Parti Pesaka Bumiputera Bersatu (PBB), Sarawak United People’s Party (SUPP), Parti Rakyat Sarawak (PRS) and Progressive Democratic Party (PDP), has remained cohesive unlike Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) which is facing serious issues due to lack of confidence in its leaders.  

“Meanwhile, Parti Sarawak Bersatu (PSB) is struggling to find candidates who will represent them in 82 DUN areas as previously announced. However, until now no one wants to come out because they know GPS leaders are doing their job well,” she told Suara Sarawak today.  

However, she assured that GPS would not underestimate the opposition parties which have the support of their leaders in Malaya while PSB is said to have a lot of money.  

Asked to comment on Bersatu and PAS’ decision to not contest in the coming 12th State Election (PRN12), Simoi said GPS welcomed the move.  

“This shows Perikatan Nasional (PN) is responsive to the goodwill of GPS, which has supported PN in the formation of the Federal government.
