Sarawak United Peoples’ Party (SUPP) Youth throws full support to the stance of their party president Dato Sri Dr Sim Kui Hian that Mambong seat belongs to SUPP.

SUPP Youth Central Deputy Chairman Andrew Victor Nub said that anyone who stood for election representing a particular party have the freedom to join another party at later time. However, it doesn’t mean he or she brings the constituency seat together.

“Obviously, anyone can leave, but the seat belongs to the original party.” said Andrew in supportive to the remark by Dato Sri Dr Sim in response to the decision of Parti Pesaka Bumiputra Bersatu (PBB) to accept Mambong assemblyman Datuk Dr Jerip Susil into the party.

” Datuk Jerip is free to opt for joining any GPS component party following his resignation from PSB, and with that right he choose to join PBB and has been accepted. We welcome the seat back to GPS formally. This move would allow GPS to serve mambong constituency well.”

“Even though he is now with PBB, i am sure the decision by PBB leadership is to allow the people in Mambong to have access to the development funds from GPS, as  only GPS ADUNs and MPs will be able to disburse funds from the state government for the development of their constituency. However, when PRN comes, SUPP will definitely be given the mandate to represent GPS in Mambong as the seat belongs to our party traditionally ever since it existed.” said Andrew.

According to Andrew, who is also SUPP Mambong Youth Chief, GPS is a coalition of 4 component parties on equal rooting and consensus of seat allocation for this coming PRN will definitely be a fair distribution.

“SUPP has been working together with the rakyat and other GPS component party in Mambong, since the very first state election when the constituency was established in 1970 state election, addressed as Bengoh at that time. Since then, we have never stop going around the constituency.

Andrew stressed that SUPP Mambong is determined and ready to represent GPS to contest for Dun Mambong in the coming 12th Sarawak state election. However until the time comes, we have to work hard with our GPS partners in our effort to serve and continue to fight for what is righfully Sarawak’s.
