KUCHING: More support have been coming in for the Chief Minister Pehin Sri Haji Abdul Taib Mahmud’s statement that Sarawak United People’s Party (SUPP) should replace its ineffective leaders before the coming state election.

“It should be so. Those who are not effective, cannot contribute or represent in particular the Chinese community, should have been replaced a long time ago. We want leaders who can effectively represent the community and safeguard its rightful interests and welfare,” said Kuching Foochow Association president Wong Tiong Hook yesterday.

Sarawak Taxi Owner Association chairman Lim Siaw Khiung agreed.

“Those who are non-performing should be changed. For those who can contribute effectively, they must be given chances,” he told New Sarawak Tribune when contacted.

Deputy Minister of Works Dato’ Yong Khoon Seng had come out in full support of the Chief Minister’s statement last Saturday saying “This truly is correct, and there are ways to do this. We have to go through screening, go through committees to study the background of candidates and do some surveys to see whether the candidates to be nominated will stand a fighting chance or not. All these should be the normal process of selection,” he told reporters after opening the Hari Ceriaton of SMK Tabuan Jaya here. Yong had also disclosed that SUPP leaders were now in the process of doing this, but added that he was not involved in the matter.
