Let’s have a DPM from S’wak: Penghulu Lucy
By:Noor Syahhira Hady

KUCHING: A non-governmental organisation (NGO) leader is hoping for a Sarawakian to be appointed as a deputy prime minister in the new government after the 15th general election (GE15).

Sarawak Indian Women Association (SIWA) president Penghulu Lucy Lingam said the appointment will give the state more clout than before.

“This is needed as he or she will bring stability to our country,” she said when contacted by the New Sarawak Tribune yesterday (Oct 14).

Meanwhile, Sarawak Women For Women Society president Dr Angie Garet expressed her hope that the new government will be a farsighted one devoid of corrupt leaders.

“This is to make sure our country is well-respected nationally and internationally.

“For that, I would like to urge voters to vote for leaders who are reliable, futuristic and corrupt-free,” she said.

She also expressed hope that more women will be nominated as candidates in GE15 so that there will be more top-decision making women leaders,” she said.

Asked for opinion on the polling date, whether it might fall on weekdays or weekend, Angie said she would allow her staff to go and cast their votes to exercise their right as a citizen, and if polling were to to fall on weekdays, she would need them to take at least two days off.
