datuk-robert-lauA senior leader of Sarawak United People’s Party (SUPP) is getting jittery as Chinese voters in the state gradually deserting the party.

Deputy chairman of SUPP Sibu Branch, Datuk Robert Lau, said at the same time support from other ethnic communities for the party has remained more or less intact.

“We still got over 75 per cent of the votes from the natives, but obtained less than 50 per cent of the Chinese support,” he said at the installation of SUPP Queensway Service Center’s office-bearers in Sibu last Saturday.

Lau reminded Chinese community in the state not to take the blessings of life for granted, and urged them to cooperate with the SUPP and Barisan Nasional (BN) government.

“Work with us to perpetuate the prosperity that you currently enjoy,” he said.

As a component of Barisan Nasional SUPP has been working hard for the people, he said.
