KUCHING: A win in the Stampin parliamentary constituency will give Gabungan Parti Sarawak (GPS) an added advantage in serving the people.

The constituency which encompasses the state seats of Batu Kawa, Batu Kitang and Kota Sentosa – all which are now under GPS – was held by DAP Sarawak chief Chong Chieng Jen before the dissolution of parliament.

Should GPS wrest the seat from DAP, it will translate to a stronger service team, said Kota Sentosa assemblyman Wilfred Yap.

It will mean there will be someone to demand for more allocations in parliament, he added.

“Many issues need to be resolved and most of those issues require allocations from the government to resolve.

“If we have an MP (from GPS), we will get a lot (allocations). Issues and problems can be raised and the development phase will be faster,” he told the media after witnessing the handing over of the rural transformation project (RTP) at Jalan Semaba, here Monday (Oct 24).

Also present was Batu Kitang assemblyman Lo Khere Chiang

Yap said GPS under the leadership of Datuk Patinggi Tan Sri Abang Johari Tun Openg is capable of delivering development.

“We have a leader who has a good vision, so let’s support him together.

“Supporting him means supporting his members like me and Lo.

“Therefore, help us to add another member (MP) so that more allocation will be channeled and the lives of the people in Batu Kawa, Batu Kitang and Kota Sentosa as well as Stampin could become better,” he said.
