Focus on fulfilling polls manifesto, Voon tells Sarawak DAP

KUCHING: Parti Bumi Kenyalang (PBK) president Voon Lee Shan said Sarawak DAP should “forget” about him and focus instead on fulfilling the promises in their election manifesto.

He said the show-cause letter issued on June 12 asking him to explain his dual political party membership was unnecessary as he had already left Sarawak DAP.

“Please leave me alone and let me find happiness in my new ‘home’.

“I sympathise with Sarawak DAP chairman Chong Chieng Jen and state organising secretary Violet Yong who received unkind remarks from the public after they claimed that I was still a DAP member,” he told reporters at a press conference here today.

Voon also queried the sudden “interest” Sarawak DAP had in him and said the party should focus on fulfilling the promises in their election manifesto.

“I still remember watching a video clip in which Chong, in the state assembly, announced that if Pakatan Harapan managed to form the federal government, a total of 50% revenue collected from Sarawak would be returned to the state.

“He also claimed that Sarawak will get 20% oil and gas royalties.

“The Chinese community is also still waiting for DAP to get the Unified Examination Certificate recognised by the government,” he said.

Voon said Sarawak DAP should examine their leadership and find out why they had lost seats in the last state election.

They also needed to look at why many potential leaders had left quietly, resigned or were expelled and suspended from the party.

“I find it very disturbing to be questioned by the public on this matter.

“Among the notable leaders are Sim Kwang Yang, Jason Wong Sing Nang, Dominique Ng, See Chee How, Yong Seng Chen, Dr Ting Chiik Ming, Michael Tiang, Wong Huan Yu, Fong Pau Teck, Yap Hoi Liang, Kung Chin Chin, Tay Wee Wee and Wong Hau Ming,” he said.
