KUCHING: Pesaka Bumiputera Bersatu (PBB) Batu Kawah branch has thrown its full support behind incumbent Datuk Yong Khoon Seng to defend the Stampin seat in the 13th general election.
Its chief Datuk Ahmad Ibrahim said the branch is in full support of Yong as they believe he has a better chance of retaining the seat for Barisan Nasional.
“We are confident that he will win the seat. This is because the people already have their trust and confidence in him, on his leadership over the duration of his past service.
“In this constituency, we don’t have problems with the Bumiputera voters but he had to work hard because what we are worried about now is the (voting trend) of the non-Bumiputera voters,” he said, adding that there are 2,346 voters in the constituency.
Earlier in his speech at function in handing over the boat to Kampung Sinar Budi Lama Neighbourhood Watch, he said the branch and other Barisan Nasional members are totally behind Yong.
After the ceremony, he also handed over their letter of support to Yong.
Yong’s candidacy was confirmed on Friday to defend Stampin following a request by BN chairman Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak.
