Let us all congratulate every quarter involved in the Sarawak State Election. I wish to extend and wish BN congratulations for the huge victory and managed to secure the 2/3 majority that the ruling party was dying to attain. BN won 55 seats and that is comfortable by numbers. BUT BN Sarawak ceases to be the Fixed Deposit for national BN from now on.
Let us not neglect to congratulate DAP for being able to double its representation in the State Legislative to 12 in total. Bear in mind that it’s 100 percent jump and no one should deny that the party‘s existence in the Hornbill state is an existence with huge consequence.
PKR too has tripled its numbers to 3 and George Lagong cleverly snatched another seat from BN with an Independent ticket. PKR and George too deserve big praise for their performances.
The Election Commission (EC) merits commendation for successfully conducting the State Election with great success and as the EC Chairman admitted that this election was the most successful election ever conducted by the EC so far. The police too had provided the security of the State Election very well and the IGP gave his heartiest praise to all his men on duty during the 10-day campaign period.
Throughout the 10-day intense campaign period, there had not been any annoying incidence that would have stained the election process and that reflects the maturity of Sarawakian from both sides of the divide. The people too deserve approbation for participating in the election in orderly conduct.
Of course every quarter has to loose some and gain some. AND that is normal in any democracy.
