KUCHING:Sarawakians should stick with the present state government as it is led by local-based parties which have the interest of the people at heart, says State Reform Party (STAR) Sabah chief Datuk Dr Jeffery Kitingan.
He stressed that the people in Sarawak should be grateful that they were still being ruled by the local-based political parties unlike Sabah which is controlled by a peninsula-based party.
“My advice for Sarawakians is this; why should you support the opposition especially the Pakatan Rakyat (PR) which is all made up of peninsula-based parties? The people of Sarawak must learn from our (Sabahans) bitter experiences where most of our interests have been eroded away under the current government,” Jeffery told The Borneo Post here yesterday.
He said that was why STAR advised the people of Sabah to reject PR in the coming general election as they did not have the people’s interests at heart.
Jeffery pointed out that the PR ‘Buku Jingga’ (Orange Book) did not specifically mention and explain how the people of Sarawak and Sabah would and could benefit if they were to capture Putrajaya after the general election. Read on in Apanama HERE
