Tiong wants all to work for common good



SIBU: Community leaders have been urged to work together despite whatever political differences for the betterment of the Dudong constituency.

Dudong Assemblyman, Datuk Seri Tiong King Sing made the call at the Progressive Democratic Party (PDP) Pre Gawai gathering for the Dudong constituency at a hotel here on Friday night.

According to Tiong, some of the community leaders appointed in the Dudong area are not supporters of the state government however he still gave them a chance.

“I know there are community leaders who do not give full support to GPS but I still respect them and still appoint them as community leaders.

“However, I call on all community leaders, especially Tuai Rumah to work together to safeguard the interests of our area as a whole and this is the most important thing for me.

“I do not want us to be selfish but instead work together to understand and look after the interests of the people in this area,” he said.

“There are also rumours about me only electing people from the PDP but I as the president of the PDP, will not act in such a way but instead share with all parties in GPS.

“Together we look after the interests of all the people in the Dudong area. If there is anything wrong, I apologise. I hope we can work together regardless of party.

“I also hope that community leaders who join other parties do not make untrue speculations through social media,” he said.

He urged everyone to use social media as a platform to voice their opinion for the betterment of the community in the area instead of harming others.

He thanked every Dudong voter for their full support during the previous 12th state election (PRN12).

Also present were the PDP Dudong branch Chairman, Teo Boon Siew, and others.
