PETALING JAYA: Sabah voters should remember how Parti Warisan Sabah, which is aligned to Pakatan Harapan government, failed to rule the state properly, says Datuk Seri Dr Wee Ka Siong.
The MCA president said many grassroots issues remain unsolved after Warisan’s 26 months in power.
“I call upon the party's election machinery to remind voters of Warisan’s failure in running the state properly from 26 months ago.
“Many issues remain unsolved, ” he said on Facebook on Saturday (Sept 12).
Dr Wee was addressing staff of the Barisan Nasional-MCA election machinery in a brief political ceramah at the command centre on Saturday.
He said former finance minister Lim Guan Eng was the one who retracted an allocation to upgrade the Donggongon tamu (traditional farmers' market) in Penampang which had been approved by the sixth prime minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak.
“Strangely, the previous two-term Kapayan assemblyman from DAP did not fight for the farmers’ market when Lim was the finance minister for 22 months.
“That’s why we should change back the government to Barisan for the development of infrastructure and economy, and for the betterment of the people, ” he said.
Sabah MCA will be contesting four seats in the Sabah state elections.
The party is fielding its Kapayan division chief Lu Yen Tung at Kapayan, Dr Chang Kee Ying at Likas, political analyst Chew Kok Woh at Karamunting and Chan Boon Thian at Elopura.
Also present at the meeting were Lu, party vice-president Datuk Seri Ti Lian Ker, Penampang Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia division chief Datuk John Ambrose, Penampang Parti Bersatu Rakyat Sabah (PBRS) division chief Albert Khairul, Penampang Umno division deputy chief Adrian Sikawah, Penampang Wanita Umno chief Noraini Idris and Penampang MCA division chief Wong Kong Hing.
