KANOWIT: Gabungan Parti Sarawak (GPS) must work hard from now on to ensure victory in the 12th state election, GPS Youth leader Gerald Rentap Jabu said.
“GPS has fewer than 900 days to the election which must be held before the current State Legislative Assembly’s term expires in 2021.
“We must make sure GPS remain in power so that we can continue our fight to restore our rights under the Malaysia Agreement 1963,” he said at the GPS Flag Rally here yesterday.
Rentap, who is Layar assemblyman, cautioned the people not to be fooled by outsiders who are expected to converge on Sarawak during the election time.
Earlier, Rentap, joined by Assistant Minister of Youth and Sports Datuk Snowdan Lawan, Machan assemblyman Allan Siden Gramong, Serembu assemblyman Miro Simuh and others, arrived in Kanowit in an express boat.
They were received by former Machan assemblyman Datuk Gramong Juna, his wife Datin Catherine Gramong, Ngemah assemblyman Alexander Vincent, political secretary to the chief minister Petrus Igat and Sarawak United People’s Party (SUPP) Kanowit branch chairman Datuk Ho Beng Aik.
Those gathered at the rally observed a moment of silence as a gesture of respect to the former chief minister the late Pehin Sri Adenan Satem.
The convoy later proceeded to Kapit.
