KUCHING: Special Advisor to the Chief Minister's Department Datuk Amar Adenan Satem might be telling the truth when he told Pakatan Rakyat (PR) Sarawak and Democraric Action Party (DAP) not to be too ambitious after winning the Sibu parliamentary election.

As he pointed out to the new Sibu MP Wong Ho Leng, DAP only won one seat and despite of what they said about their victory, BN is still THE government - and Pehin Sri Abdul Taib Mahmud is still the Chief Minister.

Ho Leng seemed to be receptive to this argument although he did make some noises when Adenan was telling him this in the State Legislative Assembly few days ago.

However, Parti Islam Se-Malaysia (PAS) didn't take the advice very well.

The party was very unhappy that Adenan was trying to spoil their celebration mood with the unwelcomed advice.

Its state secretary Saidin Massudin Sahini said there was nothing wrong to celebrate as if the opposition pact has won the majority to govern the state.

He pointed out that even the Barisan Nasional (BN) leaders would behave as if the oppositions were dead when they won a by-election.

Saidin said the victory showed that the oppositions were very much alive in Sarawak.

"We are excited with this victory because it shows that the oppositions have a good chance to spring more surprises in the coming state elections," said the state secretary.

He also thanked the party volunteers for working very hard to help DAP to win the by-election.

"I also wish to thank the Malay and Dayak voters who have shown an encouraging response to our campaign," he said.
