BETONG, Sarawak (Bernama) – The 65 initiatives mooted by Sarawak Chief Minister Datuk Patinggi Abang Johari Tun Openg reflect his deep commitment to take the state and its people to greater progress and prosperity, said Deputy Chief Minister Datuk Amar Douglas Uggah.
He said it also amply demonstrated that Abang Johari was a Chief Minister for all the races in both the urban and rural areas of the state.
“As such, as the leader of the state Gabungan Parti Sarawak (GPS) government, he deserves every support from the people,” Uggah, who is also Bukit Saban Assemblyman, said after receiving the GPS Flag Rally convoy at the Panglima Rentap hall on Tuesday night.
He said only the local leaders from the local political parties knew Sarawak’s problems intimately and GPS comprised four local political parties and multiracial leaders. The GPS comprises Parti Pesaka Bumiputra Bersatu (PBB), Sarawak United People’s Party (SUPP), Parti Rakyat Sarawak (PRS) and Progressive Democratic Party (PDP).
“In GPS, we have a new political platform shaped along our own interests, aspirations and agendas, including to look after and protect the state’s rights under MA63 (Malaysia Agreement 1963),” he said.
