SERIAN: Gabungan Parti Sarawak (GPS) must continue to lead the state after the 12th State Election in order for Sarawak to move forward.

Deputy Chief Minister Datuk Amar Douglas Uggah Embas said under the leadership of Chief Minister Datuk Patinggi Abang Johari Tun Openg, Sarawak had witnessed tremendous developments since 2017.

He said the chief minister’s target was to see Sarawak achieve a developed state status by 2030. Once achieved, it would bring greater benefits to all Sarawakians.

“It is clear that Abang Johari is a chief minister for all. He has rolled out various development programmes for all layers of society including setting up the Unit for Other Religions (Unifor) to look after the welfare of non-Islamic organisations.

“Hence, we must ensure that Abang Johari and GPS continue to lead the state after the upcoming election,” he said when officiating at the closing ceremony of an Agriculture Community Outreach Programme (AgriCOP) for Kedup constituency at Balai Babuk Barum, Kampung Bunan Gega, Serian today.

Uggah, who is also Modernisation of Agriculture, Native Land and Regional Development Minister, said GPS and its leaders had showed their capability, policies and had outlined the development programmes for the state.

“This is not just rhetoric, we have channelled (development) to the whole of Sarawak,” he stressed.

Uggah urged the people in Kedup constituency to continue to support Martin Ben as their elected representative.

He pointed out that Martin has worked hard and always wanted to make sure that his constituency was not being left behind in infrastructure developments.

“As such, I am confident that you will continue to give your support to GPS, and ensure that Abang Johari will continue to be the chief minister of Sarawak so that Sarawak can be a developed state by 2030,” he said.
