CM tells BN elected reps to deliver promises by year end, prepare for state election

KUCHING: In an indication that the state election could be close, Chief Minister Tan Sri Datuk Amar Adenan Satem directs Barisan Nasional (BN) assemblymen to deliver all their promises to the people and resolve local issues by the end of the year.

Barisan Nasional Backbenchers Club (BNBBC) chairman Abdullah Saidol said Adenan feared delay in deliveries and broken promises could tarnish the image of the state BN’s credibility and affect the chances of its candidates in the next state election.

“What the chief minister wants is that if you make some small promises (to the people), don’t allow these promises to drag up to six months. For instance, if you promise to send fans or rubber mats to the people, you must remember what you promised. Don’t take six months to deliver these items.

“If you (elected representatives) have something in mind relating to state or federal budget, this could be addressed later. Small issues must be addressed immediately,” Abdullah told a press conference after the first meeting between BNBBC and Adenan at the State Legislative Assembly (DUN) building here yesterday.

The meeting was attended by 22 of the 25 BN state assemblymen.

DAP Sarawak plans to make use of hudud to contest in PKR's traditional(?) seats

A smart move, YB Chong (Y).

KUCHING (July 22): State PKR is deeply taken aback that its state partner DAP has threatened to pull out of PR over PAS’ stand on hudud without prior consultation or notification.

Its chairman Baru Bian, in a press statement yesterday, said: “PKR Sarawak is surprised and shocked that DAP Sarawak has seen it fit to issue an ultimatum to our common partner PAS over their stand on hudud without prior consultation with or notification to us.

“On my part, I feel a deep regret that DAP Sarawak should feel that we in the state PKR have been non-committal about the issue, even after the statements I have made about this matter.”
