KUCHING: Three senior leaders from PBB Tarat and Bengoh branches yesterday voiced their support for Mambong MP Datuk Dr James Dawos Mamit to be re-nominated for the 13th general election.
PBB Tarat branch chairman Datuk Roland Sagah Wee Inn, PBB Tarat Youth chief Stanley Sila, and PBB Bengoh branch secretary Jeguk Ngamo said Dawos was a class act and deserved to be supported.
Sagah, who is also deputy speaker of the State Legislative Assembly, said his branch would give their full support to Dawos in the impending polls.
“I have never heard of such thing. Who are the leaders (if any)?” Sagah said when contacted to comment on reports that some Bidayuh leaders was trying to pull the deputy minister of tourism down.
The reports also stated that the “crab mentality” among the Bidayuh community could see the political demise of Dawos.
Sagah opined that those behind the veil could be some aspiring candidates.
“That is normal in any political parties. However, there is no such thing as trying to bring down somebody,” he said, adding that he did not believe people from his community would resort to such acts.
Stanley, when contacted, said Dawos is the elected representative for Mambong and thus should be fully supported in the impending polls.
“We need to support our current leader because without support we cannot work together,” reasoned Stanley.
Meanwhile, Jeguk noted that there were people trying to discredit Dawos by saying that he had not kept all his promises.
While he admitted that some promises had yet to be fulfilled, Jeguk said the key reason was because of miscommunication between the villages concerned and Dawos service centre.
“As far as we are concerned, he (Dawos) has fulfilled his promises and we are happy with his performance,” Jeguk said, and urged the electorate to give their total support to Dawos.
He also appealed to aspiring candidates to stop discrediting Dawos.
“Your time will come (to become the candidate). Why should we discredit our leader who has been doing a good job?”
Jeguk added that the crab mentality of destroying others within the community must stop.
