She was lucky to win the state election this month because apparently she didn't perform her duty as an elected representative in her first term!!!

KUCHING: Minister in the Chief Minister’s Department Datin Fatimah Abdullah said the campaigning period during the last state election had helped her understand in depth the issues surrounding her constituency.
Speaking when met after the swearing in of the state cabinet at the State Legislative Assembly (DUN) complex yesterday, Fatimah added that it had also shed lights on some areas which need to be developed.
“Voters had stressed several important amenities and basic needs which require attention and we will look into these matters,” assured Fatimah.
Pressing that there is a need for better delivery on welfare, she added that all welfare programmes will have to go through some refinement so that the objectives will be achieved.
She also pointed out that a lot will have to be done to ensure that the people in Dalat will benefit from all development progress brought by the government.
“I always highlight the importance for voters to understand and share similar visions with the government. This will ensure that all facilities, education, welfare and social aspects can be look after and not left out in pursue of development.”
On another matter, Fatimah said she still serves as the minister under the current cabinet unless a reshuffle takes place sometime soon; else there is no change to her portfolio. - Borneo Post -
