MUKAH: Tellian assemblyman, Yusibnosh Balo said the ‘no contest’ move by Bersatu and PAS shows that the Perikatan Nasional coalition parties appreciate the role of Gabungan Parti Sarawak (GPS) in helping to stabilise the country’s political situation.
“If they do not compete, this will ensure that GPS wins the state election.
“This is because the contending parties are a slew of Malaya-based oppositions and a new local political party, whose ability to govern the state is still unclear despite their promises which is normal when election comes around,” he told Suara Sarawak on Saturday.
Yusibnosh said the people were already immune to such empty promises as evidenced by the unfulfilled promises of the previous Pakatan Harapan (PH) government.
“It’s not like GPS — which has been fulfilling promises through its people-centric policies and projects.
“Our Chief Minister Datuk Patinggi Abang Johari Tun Openg’s leadership is very strong now, and Sarawak is on course into becoming an advanced state by 2030.
“The people can assess the policies and achievements of GPS in administering the state.
“A change in Sarawak’s political scenario is therefore unwarranted,” he said, while urging the people to remain solidly behind Abang Johari to continue to lead the state.
