KUCHING, May 11 – Barisan Nasional’s big win in the recent 11th Sarawak election is proof of the people’s rejection of opposition in rural areas, said Parti Rakyat Sarawak (PRS) Youth publicity chief Bit Surang. Bit believes the Dayak want to be visible, be relevant and to be an integral part of Adenan’s Sarawak dream with PRS as the bridge.
He said Barisan Nasional especially Parti Rakyat Sarawak (PRS) Key Performance Index of 100 percent seat delivery to the BN reflected the trust of the rural people towards BN to continue focusing on rural development policies. Bit also admitted that the Adenan factor was the main contributor to the excellent result of BN in the Sarawak election. He said PRS Youth also envisioned that with Adenan’s leadership qualities, the vision to make Sarawak a fully developed status would be realised by 2030.
He also added that PRS Youth fully support and subscribe to the dream of the rest of the Sarawakian people, that is to see that Sarawak develop in all the sectors, inline and on par with its counterpart, in the Peninsular. In additional, he also said that the Dayak and rural people have the trust in Tan Sri Dr James Masing’s leadership as they see the PRS president as a person who speaks his mind and always outspoken when there is a need for Dayak related matters.
He said PRS, a component party of the BN coalition, concentrated more on rural development and will be a good platform to institutionalize the true concept of power sharing, as they can be the vehicle, to oversee the development in the rural areas. Thus, the PRS Youth has very high hopes that with Adenan’s vision of being the leader for all Sarawakians, the inclusiveness and acceptance of power sharing would be a change from the normal concept.
He said Adenan would be remembered as a chief minister who dares to be different, having a mind of his own and willing to share with the other component parties, all for the sake of unity and above any other vested interest. PRS Youth sees this formula as an indeed added advantage to the strength of the coalition as well as Adenan’s new transformation process, said Bit.
