A JKR divisional engineer Ir. Aidil Lariwoo had surprised many supporters of Ir. Haidel Heli when he was announced as the BN candidate in the Sadong Jaya constituency.
Many thought that Ir. Aidil Lariwoo would not harbour any interest to venture into politics because he was committed with this work.
Ir. Aidil Lariwoo had an advantage over Ir. Haidel Heli because he was more familiar with the area than Ir. Haidel Heli who is residing and working in Kuching.
