DAP in Sarawak claims to now have more Dayak members in the state when compared with Chinese members.
Sarawak DAP chairman Chong Chieng Jen said they used to be known as only having Chinese support but that was not the case any more.
“We have more Dayak members than Chinese members.
“At least 60% of our members there are Dayak now and more are coming in to join us,” he told guests during the Sarawak State Election Fund-Raising Dinner 2015 here today.
The Bandar Kuching MP said that he was confident of winning more seats in the coming state elections as Barisan Nasional had increased the number of state constituencies.
“The new 11 seats are rural and native seats and not Chinese seats
Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng paid tribute to Selangor folk for their support to help Sarawak.“The number of voters in these seats are just 6,000 to 7,000 voters unlike the 30,000-voter seats we have won.”
“I’m very touched that Selangor people are here for Sarawak. I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart.”
Lim said to break the rule of BN, their safety deposit, which wasSabah and Sarawak, must be broken first.
“Sarawak is one of the three pillars of Malaysia.
“They must know that with the wealth of their resources, they do not need to be poor.
“There is no reason they should be left behind,” the DAP secretary-general said.
He said DAP’s “Impian Sarawak” had made huge progress.
“We have archived success with ‘Impian Sarawak’ by providing water and electricity free of charge.
“Imagine that they are a part of this country and some of them do not have water and electricity
“They can now see that an Opposition party can provide them with something BN could not do for 52 years.”
Puchong MP Gobind Singh Deo said the Sarawak elections were around the corner and it was often a strong indicator for the next general election.
“DAP Sabah and Sarawak have gained a lot of ground.
“I congratulate them for that,” he said.
