MIRI: Sarawak United Peoples Party (SUPP) has challenged PKR and its incumbent Miri MP Teo Yu Keng to produce a report card to the public to show what they have done for them.
Miri SUPP candidate Datuk Sebastian Ting and SUPP information chief Adam Yii issued the challenge at a press conference here on Friday (May 4).
Ting produced a Chinese news clipping quoting Sarawak DAP leaders accusing Teo of being absent all the time from Parliament.
"PKR and YB Teo during their public ceramah have been condemning Barisan Nasional over all sorts of national issues.
"YB Teo say their focus is on national issues but SUPP feels that local matters concerning Miri and Sarawak must be dealt with too.
"Look at Miri Pakatan now. They talk about national issues but when the local folk go to them for help, they say they can't help.
"How can a politician serving the rakyat say that national issues are more important … and neglect locals who voted him?" asked Ting.
In the 2013 polls, PKR's Teo defeated SUPP's Ting by 1,992 votes and the 2018 elections will see a rematch between the two.
