A spokesman called audie61 and told us that SWP(Sarawak Workers Party) promoters George Lagong,Josephine Mawatand also former Sarawak Report journalists Lester Melanyi were together with Datuk Sng Chee Hua at the Parliamentary Seat of Selangau.
The function at Ladang Empat in Selangau district was well attended by over 1000 supporters of SWP. At a nearby function the incumbent Selangau MP Joseph Entulu could only garner 400 people he said.
Datuk Sng also handed a donation of $20000 to assist the longhouse JKKK and it is reliably learnt that he will take on the PRS No.2 man in Joseph Entulu.
The SWP spokeperson indicated the lineup of the following against the BN/PRS seats
- 1. Hulu Rajang (George Lagong)
- 2. Kanowit ( Ellison Ludan)
- 3. Julau ( Colin Balla)
- 4. Selangau(Datuk Sng)
- 5. Lubok Antu (Langa Lias)
- 6. Sri Aman(will name at next weeks function)
Meanwhile a PKR staunch supporter Baginda Minda and also former James Masings Information Chief said “VERY GOOD.Let BN fight BN- friendly and we will capitalise on the remaining voters.” Lubok Antu and Hulu Rajang are our top parliamentary targetted seats held by PRS. We also have candidates shortlisted .
The imminent GE13 will see many aspiring politicians throwing their weight and names to be nominated to stand. Whatever political divide,ideals and party one stands on the “rakyat” will have the final say. CM Taib has already mentioned in Sarawak we practise democracy and the ‘rakyat’ will choose. Their votes will determine who will be the member of parliament for that constituency.
