Sibu: Sarawak United People’s Party (SUPP) will continue to fight for Sarawak, said its president Datuk Seri Dr Sim Kui Hian.

“SUPP adheres to the spirit of its predecessors to create a party for Sarawakians and continues to fight for Sarawak rights.

“Over the years since its existence, the party has been facing ups and downs. The party was founded for Sarawakians who love Sarawak. This spirit will carry on.

“The party will continue its struggle and we will not betray Sarawak,” he said at a belated Chinese Lunar New Year celebration dinner hosted by the SUPP Bawang Assan branch here on Saturday.

Among those present were Temenggong Datuk Vincent Lau, chairman of SUPP Pelawan Branch Clarence Ting and chairman of SUPP Bawang Assan Branch Robert Lau Hui Yew.

Dr Sim, who is also Local Government and Housing Minister, reiterated that the GPS state government would not give up the fight to recover Sarawak’s eroded rights and interests under the Malaysia Agreement 1963 and the Federal Constitution.

He believed that Sarawak should take care of its own security, and hence, coastal forces and border guards should be established.

“The future of Sarawak depends on every Sarawakian, so we must all protect Sarawak and ensure that the state will always belong to the people of Sarawak,” Dr Sim pointed out.
