Miri needs to be represented by GPS in Parliament: Dr Sim

Date:

KUCHING: Deputy Chief Minister Datuk Seri Dr Sim Kui Hian believes that the people of Miri need to be represented by a member of parliament from Gabungan Parti Sarawak (GPS).

As such he appealed to the city folk to continue supporting the coalition including in the coming parliamentary election.

“With the recent constitutional amendment related to Malaysia Agreement 1963 (MA63), we want to make sure that the provisions are fulfilled.

“We have a lot of rights that must be restored, so in the coming parliamentary election, we must have a strong GPS MP. We must win big.

“We don’t care about Malaya being divisive and polarized. It’s their business; they have nothing to do with Sarawak,” he said in his address at the Miri-Sibuti Sarawak United People’s Party (SUPP) virtual Chinese New Year open house celebration today.

Dr Sim who is SUPP president said a strong Sarawak will mean that those in the federal government will need to consult the GPS for decisions related to the state.

“Whoever win in Malaya have to negotiate with Sarawak, so we must win as many parliamentary seats as possible for GPS.

“This is so that they will come to us (to negotiate) instead of us begging things from them,” he said.

He then congratulated the voters in Miri for giving a strong mandate to the GPS candidates in Miri, allowing them to secure all three seats in the district – Pujut, Piasau and Senadin.

“As promised to the voters, a vote for (then candidate and now) Pujut assemblyman Adam Yii is a vote for Dr Sim. I will do my best for the people in Miri and will visit the city every month,” he said.
