KUCHING: Sarawakians want Sarawak to continue to be a stable region in Malaysia, said political veteran Datuk Peter Minos.
“I believe Sarawakians want the stable situation here to continue and I think they will decide so in the coming state election.
“I must say that, on observing issues in Malaysia in the last few years, Sarawakians must be very proud and happy that the state is the most stable,” he said in a statement on Thursday (Nov 25).
After heavily suffering from the Covid-19 pandemic, he added that the people of Sarawak are now looking forward to a life of both normalcy and stability.
He opined that Sarawakians seek active and vigorous socio-economic efforts and endeavours go on unimpeded and undisturbed.
“Sarawakians are also proud of the prevailing racial and religious understanding and harmony here, one fine excellent culture.
“This seems to be lacking in other parts of Malaysia. Therefore, Sarawakians want this trait and culture not to be disturbed by politics or whatever,” he pointed out.
Minos said that Sarawakians still want the central government to understand and appreciate their long-standing requests, like the rights and powers under the Malaysia Agreement 1963 (MA63) and to give more funds for economic and social development.
“All things considered, Sarawakians can plainly see that the united and well-led Gabungan Parti Sarawak (GPS) does have the capacity and ability to carry on with the current stability in here.
“The rather disunited and unruly oppositions are not giving much promise nor any assurance on the matter,” concluded Minos.
