MIRI: The role of community leaders is to explain the policies of the government to the people because they are the leaders of the grassroots level.

Speaker of Dewan Undangan Negeri, Datuk Amar Asfia bin Haji Mohd Awang Nassar, pointed this out at the state –level Seminar for Leaders which took place at Eastwood Valley Country Club here.

Asfia represented Chief Minister, Datuk Patinggi Tan Sri (Dr.) Hj Adenan Hj Satem at the event.

Asfia added that the Residents, District Officers and community leaders were considered “government in the field” as they implemented government policies and supported government policies.

As such, the “government in the field” should support the government of the day, he added.

Meanwhile, Datu Misnu Taha, Deputy State Secretary, hoped all community would support policies of the government as they had pledged at the seminar.

Also present at the seminar were Minister of Public Utilities (Water Supply) and Agriculture Datuk Sylvester Entrie Anak Muran, Assistant Minister of Early Childhood Education, Rosey Yunus, Telang Usan State Assemblyman, Dennis Ngau and Miri Resident, Antonio Kathi Galis.
