KUCHING: A Parti Sarawak Bersatu candidate hopes the people will support the party, which has new ideas slated for the development of the state.
Dr Johnical Rayong Ngipa (pic), who is the former Engkilili assemblyman, claimed that when he was still with Sarawak Barisan Nasional, projects which he had requested were not approved by the government.
“That was when I realised that we needed a new vehicle to bring development to Sarawak,” he said on Wednesday (Dec 8).
Rayong contested in the 2016 state election as a Barisan direct candidate.
He said in line with advancements in information technology, Sarawakians should know better which political party could serve the people better.
“Voters are now mature and capable of identifying and choosing a party that can bring Sarawak forward,” he said.
Rayong is set to face a showdown in Engkilili against contenders Desmond Sateng Sanjan of Gabungan Parti Sarawak (GPS), Stel Datu from Parti Bumi Kenyalang (PBK) and Independent candidate Emong Batu.
Engkilili is about 150km from the state capital and is in the Sri Aman division.
