LUNDU (Sarawak) – Tan Sri Adenan Satem said the two uncontested seats won by Barisan Nasional at nomination Monday in the Sarawak state election were “a morale booster for the party”.
The Sarawak BN chairman said it was a sign that the opposition had no consensus at all.
“Of course, it is a moral booster for us and a moral letdown for the opposition. The opposition pact is very loose. No consensus, and they are not coming together,” the Sarawak Chief Minister told a press conference here at the close of nomination.
The Election Commission announced that the two seats – Bukit Sari and Bukit Kota – contested by incumbents Datuk Amar Awang Tengah Ali Hassan and Dr Abdul Rahman Ismail, respectively, were won without contest by BN.
Adenan, the BN candidate for the Tanjung Datu seat, said Sarawak BN went into the election with only one agenda, that is to continue creating opportunities and giving the best service to the ‘rakyat’ (people). – BERNAMA
