Sarawak United People Party (SUPP) deputy secretary-general Dato Sri Wong Soon Koh said no BN seat is safe in the next state election because people demanding changes.
“Whatever they meant by change, Barisan Nasional Component parties must work extra hard to retain or win seats in the next state election,” Wong quoted as saying by Borneo Post.
Wong Son Kong, who is also the state Environment and Public Health Minister said SUPP cannot be complacent even in constituency they have won in the last state election.
Wong admitted trying to win back its lost such as Padungan, Batu Lintang, Pending, Kota Sentosa, Engkilili, Maradong, Bukit Assek would be an uphill task.
In May 2006 state election, the party was thrashed in eight constituencies its contested to the oppositions, DAP and PKR.
It was such a humiliating defeat as SUPP were losing eight out of nine seats that the Barisan Nasional (BN) conceded to a then loosely alliance between DAP and PKR.
Wong was the second state Barisan Nasional components party leaders after PRS president Dato Sri Dr James Jemut Masing, publicly expressed their concern over opposition threats in the next state polls.
“The state BN is under siege from Pakatan Rakyat, if not now, it will be when the next state election comes,” Masing said in his New Year message on Jan, 1.
“BN leaders both at the state and federal levels must not under-estimate such threat, and the ever changing political landscapes increase the danger the opposition poses,” he added.
