SWP does not practise ‘towkay’ politics, says party chief

August 5, 2012

The newly formed party wants all Sarawakians to prosper, according to Larry Sng.

KUCHING: Sarawak Workers Party (SWP) president Larry Sng says the newly formed party that is set to make its debut in the coming general election, does not practise “towkay” politics as alleged by some politicans, who blame it for breaking up Dayak unity.

The former state assistant minister said today that SWP was here to provide service to the people by extending its education fund and insurance coverage to party members, besides wanting to serve them better by improving the delivery system of government funding, fight corruption and encourage greater government transparency.

“We want all Sarawakians to prosper. We are business-friendly and more importantly, people-friendly,” he said in his Facebook account’s latest status update.

Larry, 33, who resigned as special adviser (youth matters) to the state government upon being elected as party president in May this year, maintained that SWP would be a Barisan Nasional-friendly party but would contest against the state BN component party, Parti Rakyat Sarawak (PRS), in all its six parliamentary seats.

“We do not practise bad politics, and certainly not ‘towkay’ politics,” he said, adding that it would also raise issues that mattered to people of all races and segments of society.
