Political stability vital for the country, GPS coalition to continue backing Muhyiddin

KUCHING: As Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin arrived in Sarawak for a two-day working visit, the state's ruling coalition Gabungan Parti Sarawak (GPS) reiterated its support for his leadership.

Sarawak Chief Minister Datuk Patinggi Abang Johari Tun Openg said political stability was vital for the nation's future and to maintain the people's confidence.

"For this reason, GPS supports (Muhyiddin) as prime minister for the sake of political stability. If the country is stable, we can face challenges together," he said, adding that Muhyiddin had done a good job in steering the country through the Covid-19 pandemic.

Abang Johari also said Sarawak enjoyed good cooperation with the Federal Government, including working together to achieve the state's target of becoming fully developed by 2030.

"It's a tall order, but I believe we can achieve it with the collaboration between the state and federal civil service and all our resources," he said at a special meeting for civil servants with the Prime Minister here on Thursday (April 1).

In his speech, Muhyiddin thanked the Chief Minister for the expression of support to continue leading the country.

"I would like to express my deepest respect and gratitude for his backing, which I did not expect," he said.

The Prime Minister also said the Federal Government would give its fullest support to Sarawak's aspiration of becoming the most developed state by 2030.

He said Sarawak was rich in many resources and had the potential to further develop sectors such as agriculture, tourism and infrastructure.

"Sarawak has all the ingredients to put the state on the global stage, which in turn will also benefit the nation.

"We are committed to work closely to ensure that national and state aspirations can be achieved together by 2030," he said.
