Vote for leaders who’ll look after state’s interests

Date:

KUCHING: Sarawakians were told to elect leaders for Sarawak to prosper under Malaysia and build the nation as a stable and prosperous federation.

In stressing this, Parti Sedar Rakyat Sarawak (Sedar) president Datuk Othman Abdillah said with a more effective leadership, it will accelerate the wellbeing of Sarawakians.

“Therefore, Sarawakians must work harder to put people of purer sincerity in Parliament and Dewan Undangan Negeri (DUN) to look after its interests to build Malaysia as a stable and prosperous Federation,” he said.

He added, token increases of allocation and meaningless slogans will no longer do as it is mostly accompanied by broken promises.

“We welcome the faint sign of improvements to come if the understanding for political cooperation at the federation level today lives up to one of its promises to reinstate the rights and status of Sarawak as a founding partner of Malaysia.

“While this cooperation is the right way forward for a country facing its worst political, health and economic crisis, it is a short-term political reprieve from instability,” he said yesterday (Sept 15).

Othman said his party believed accelerated improvement of the wellbeing of Sarawakians will come with the will of the people to look for more effective leadership.

“For the sake of Malaysia, we urge the people to reflect and be more proactive in the political sense and call out the leaderships for any dereliction of duty to the people they serve,” he said.

At the same time, reflecting on Sarawak’s contribution to the nation, Othman said no one could deny that the true spirit of being Malaysian in multi-racial Malaysia was most prominent in Sarawak.

“However, for whatever sacrifices Sarawakians have made with their lives in defence of the federation and the immense contribution of exploitable resources from Sarawak to the national treasury, it cannot escape us that we have shared a Malaysia that is much unfavourable to us”, he added.
