KUCHING: The people must continue to support the opposition to ensure effective check-and-balance on the government.
In stating this, state DAP chairman Chong Chieng Jen said the chances of the opposition taking over the administration of the state in the coming state election were slim, so the focus was to enhance the opposition’s strength.
“There is a very small chance that the government will change in the coming state election. (So) what is key is to ensure the opposition is stronger in order to check on the government,” he told reporters covering the DAP Kota Sentosa Chinese New Year open house at its service centre here yesterday.

Chong opined that Adenan alone could not change the direction of Sarawak or Malaysia.
“The DAP can check and pressure the BN government, so to speak, so that the state and nation can improve.”
Present at the gathering were Stampin MP Julian Tan, state DAP organising secretary Violet Yong and DAP assistant treasurer Christina Chiew.
