KUCHING: The people of Sarawak are blessed with political stability which allows the state administration to focus on developing the state and ensuring their wellbeing.
Chief Minister Datuk Patinggi Abang Johari Tun Openg said a stable government is crucial for Sarawak to move forward and achieve its development goals.
He said with strategies outlined in Post Covid-19 Development Strategy (PCDS) 2030, the focus must be on working with the resources available to Sarawak and managing it properly.
“At the same time, we need leaders who have the people’s best interest at heart and not busy jostling for power.
“We need stability, thank God Sarawak has a stable government,” he said when officiating at the Langit Architectural Competition organised by Hock Seng Lee (HSL) on Saturday (Aug 7).
“Stability is important, even though you can give all the building designs that are very attractive, when the state is in chaos, I don’t think we can do it,” Abang Johari said alluding to the architectural designs showcased during the function.
His remarks came following a political crisis affecting Malaya as Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin is struggling to assert his legitimacy in a Parliament sitting next month through a motion of confidence amid calls for his resignation.
This however, has not dampened efforts to destabilise federal government as two Cabinet ministers from the United Malay National Organisation (Umno) had resigned this week due to pressure from their party.
On Friday (Aug 6), Higher Education Minister Datuk Seri Dr Noraini Ahmad had resigned. The Wanita Umno chief said her decision was based on the verdict by the Umno supreme council on Tuesday (Aug 3).
Her resignation followed that of Umno’s Lenggong MP Datuk Seri Shamsul Anuar Nasarah who resigned as the Energy and Natural Resources Minister on Tuesday.
