“We contribute nine seats [for BN] from Sarawak, why left us asked behind,” said Sarawak Progressive Democratic Party (SPDP) interim president Datuk Seri Tiong King Sing echoing Party Rakyat Sarawak (PRS) president Tan Sri James Masing’s disappointment of the Tuesday cabinet reshuffle.
In a statement released yesterday, Tiong expressed disappointment as none the party MPs were given a cabinet post despite winning all the four seats it contested in the last general election.
Tiong who is also Bintulu MP, congratulates MCA and Gerakan on the parties inclusion in the new enlarge cabinet.
He welcomed the inclusion of both two parties in the federal government as it would enable the parties to serve the people better.
“It will be the same with SPDP, if we are represented in the federal cabinet we could serve our people better especially in the rural areas,” said Tiong.
He believed that if Barisan Nasional were to improve its performance in the next election, Najib must include all communities and component parties in the government.
