SARAWAK United People’s Party (SUPP) agrees with Padungan assemblyman Wong King Wei that Sarawak needs more positivity in politics for the state to move forward.
SUPP President Datuk Seri Dr Sim Kui Hian said Wong who had announced he was quitting the DAP, had actually provided the people some food for thought.
“Instead of remaining silent in the party, Wong had voiced his disappointment over DAP’s refusal to listen to any dissenting voice and lacked inclusiveness in opinions and viewpoints.
His resignation was also due to the non-fulfilment of DAP’s political mission it preached when it was a ruling party in the federal level and eventually lost a brilliant opportunity.
The promises DAP made to the people seemed to have gone down the drain … they failed to realise our people’s hopes and expectations,” said the Batu Kawah assemblyman in a statement today.
The Local Government and Housing Minister also said DAP’s recent statements aimed at attacking the Sarawak Federation of Sarawak Association President, Datuk Richard Wee and many others leading Chinese organisations in the past, were hostile and arrogant and signified DAP’s disrespect and a lack of gratitude towards the contributions of Sarawak’s Chinese community.
“Certain attacking statements issued by DAP’s individuals have caused resentment in the Chinese community. I’m glad that YB Wong has pointed out such unruly behaviour in the DAP,” he said,
“YB Wong is not alone, there are many people feeling the same as him, especially after the 14th General Election in 2018 … more people are getting sick and tired of its political means to seek survival. DAP’s deviation from its long-preached original cause, in the eyes of many, is also a political betrayal,” Sim added.
