SIBU, 31 Oct: The upcoming 15th General Election (GE15) offers the best chance for Gabungan Parti Sarawak (GPS) to end the opposition era in the Sibu parliamentary seat.

Parti Pesaka Bumiputera Bersatu (PBB) vice president Datuk Dr. Annuar Rapaee said GPS will be able to defeat the opposition parties based on the results of the previous 12th State Election held in December last year.

He further reiterated that GPS had won the Nangka and Pelawan state seats under the parliamentary constituency with the exception of Bawang Assan.

“Based on this and of course the high spirit of all component parties to end the opposition era in Sibu.

“I think we will be able to make it this time,” he told reporters at Zone 7 & 8 Women’s Wing PBB Machinery Meeting here, today.

Meanwhile, Sarawak United People’s Party (SUPP) Nangka branch chief Chua Beng Seng was reported by a local press on Sunday (October 30th) as confidently saying that the general election will see an end to 12 years of the Sibu parliamentary seat being held by the opposition.

Based on the party’s success in winning back both the Pelawan and Bukit Assek state seats in the last state election and the party’s Nangka, Bawang Assan, and Pelawan branches would stand solidly behind their candidate to ensure victory.

At the same time, Pergerakan Wanita GPS chief Datuk Seri Fatimah Abdullah said she and the women’s wing would not let their guard down but vowed to work hard and avoid even the slightest mistake to ensure victory for GPS.

Apart from the traditional approach of meeting the voters face to face, the wing will also go online, especially to convince the new and young voters that are voting for their good future.

“We will not be going as Wanita PBB, PRS, SUPP, or PDP but as one GPS in this election,” she added.

The polling is slated to be held on November 19 while nominations are on November 5th and early voting is on November 15th. – TVS
