Lau pledges to serve the people

SIBU: Robert Lau Hui Yew from the Sarawak United People’s Party (SUPP) who narrowly lost by 398 votes to DAP’s Wong Ho Leng in the Sibu by-election, said he will continue to serve the people as a councillor of Sibu Municipal Council (SMC) and as a party leader.

Lau, who has been a SUPP member for 17 years, said his heart was still with the people of Sibu and he would continue working for their betterment.

”I was born here, raised here and live here. I will always make Sibu my home,” he said, adding that he would work even harder to win over those who did not support him in the by-election.

Lau’s pleasant personality and commitment to serve the people had earned praise from Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak who told Lau after the election result was announced on Sunday night that he should take heart and continue to serve the people with dedication.

“Najib is a person who has really influenced and touched me a lot. I wholeheartedly believe he is a good prime minister who really can deliver if the people give him the chance and support,” Lau said.
