LAWAS: Gabungan Parti Sarawak’s (GPS) winning momentum in the state election last month is likely to carry it through to parliament come the 15th General Election.

In the event, the voices of the people in Lawas will also be heard in parliament thereafter, said Deputy Chief Minister Datuk Amar Awang Tengah Ali Hasan.

“We must maintain this momentum so that in GE15, the victory will be in our favour so that Lawas will continue to be a stronghold of GPS.

“This will allow our voice to be louder, so that people will hear our roar,” he said during the district level Chinese New Year contribution presentation at Hotel Seri Malaysia on Tuesday (Jan 25).

Awang Tengah, who is Bukit Sari assemblyman, expressed his appreciation to the Chinese community in the constituency for coming out to vote during the election.

He said more than 90 per cent Chinese voters including young voters had voted in the election.

“I noticed that at polling centres in SJK Chung Hua , SK Pusat and SK Agama a majority of the Chinese community cast their ballots.

“I also found that almost all channels, including the young voters’ channel, also cast their votes and we garnered so many votes,” he said.

Present at the ceremony were Federal Deputy Minister of Transport and Lawas MP Datuk Henry Sum Agong, Lawas District Officer Ladin Atok, Northern Region Development Agency (NRDA) Director Datuk Ubaidillah Abdul Latiff, Pemanca Tan Yong H’ng and community leaders.
