DAP members warned to be humble

9th July, 2018

SANDAKAN: DAP members here have been advised not to be big-headed with the party’s success in the recent general elections.

They have been reminded to continue upholding the fundamentals of the party’s political struggle.

“We should not forget that the people gave the mandate to form the government because they wanted to see changes,” Sabah DAP chairman and Singapore Street branch chairman Stephen Wong Tien Fatt said here on Sunday.

Wong said DAP grassroots should not be carried away because of Warisan, Pakatan Harapan and UPKO having formed a new State government.

“We must continue to serve and look after the well-being of the people because we are the people’s government.

“Be humble, never abuse your power and do not resort to threaten or being rude in our dealings with people coming to us seeking our services,” Wong said. “The people have expectations for us to fulfill our promises to them. Do not disappoint them and do not repeat the wrongs of the previous administration.”

Wong, who is State Health and People’s Wellbeing Minister and Sandakan Member of Parliament, said this during the annual general meeting (AGM) of the party’s Sandakan area branches at the Sandakan Senior Citizens Association in Bandar Labuk Jaya yesterday.

He said he had received unfavourable public feedback on the attitude of some party grassroots when approached by the people for assistance.

On the Sandakan Municipal Council (MPS), Wong said it is a service entity and therefore importance must be placed on providing an effective and quality delivery system to the Sandakan people.

Meanwhile, all three DAP elected representatives in Sandakan – Stephen Wong (Singapore Street), Frankie Poon (Pekan Batu Sapi), Calvin Chong (Elopura) – together with Maximillen Lee (Karamunting), Chin Yee Kent (Bandar Kim Fung), Liew Chan Hang (Bandar Indah) and Soo Kin Yuen (Pekan Prima) were reelected as branch chairmen. The AGM was chaired by DAP Sabah Organising Secretary Henry Shim.
