Don’t call me Yang Berhormat, says Puncak Borneo winner

KUCHING: The winner of the Puncak Borneo parliamentary seat, Willie Mongin (pic), has extended an open invitation to Barisan Nasional, PBDS Baru and Parti Reformasi Negeri (STAR) to work together with him for the betterment of the people and Puncak Borneo.

“Our victory is not our own but it is God's will, the victory of the people.

“I also request the public not to address me as ‘Yang Berhormat'.

“Just call me ‘Willie’.

“We are grateful to all of you who have contributed to our campaign through cash and in kind, by volunteering and through your prayers,” he said in a WhatsApp message.

Willie won the Puncak Borneo seat after defeating Barisan’s candidate from PBB, Jeanoth Sinel, and STAR'S candidate Buln Ribos in a three-cornered fight.

He wrested the Bidayuh majority seat with a margin of 4,005 votes.
