New parties not a threat
By:Osman Razali

BETONG: The existence of new political parties would not threaten the prevailing unity and harmony among PBB members in Kabong constituency.

Giving this assurance, Kabong assemblyman Mohd Chee Kadir said the people would not be easily cowed into believing rhetoric by the parties concerned.

“As of now, only PBB-led GPS is seen as the party that is capable of bringing development to rural-based constituencies such as Kabong,” he added in an interview with New Sarawak Tribune’s sister paper Suara Sarawak.

Hence, people not just in Kabong but throughout the state should give a fresh mandate to GPS to continue to rule the state after the next state election.

“This is to enable continuity in the GPS development agenda for the state’s rural areas,” he stressed.

At the same time, Mohd Chee, who is also PBB Kabong chairman, said the government should take affirmative efforts to ensure all planned development projects, especially those involving basic amenities including water and electricity supply to be implemented as scheduled.

To a question, Mohd Chee described Chief Minister Datuk Patinggi Abang Johari Tun Openg as a wise, far-sighted and affable leader.

“Abang Johari is always willing to lend an ear to the people’s problems and later pay due solutions to them.

“He is also a visionary leader and with his brilliant planning, he is believed to be able to transform Sarawak into a developed state by the year 2030,” he added.

On tomorrow’s convention, Mohd Chee described it as an important platform to prepare the party members in facing the coming state election.
