LIMBANG: Gabungan Parti Sarawak (GPS) will be going all out in the battle to ensure that it continues to govern Sarawak and fight for her rights and the interests of her people, promised Assistant Minister of Agriculture Dr Abdul Rahman Ismail.
“We will fight all out in the coming State election due in 2021 to ensure GPS remains in power,” he said in the rallying call at the GPS logo arrives in town from Lawas at the second stop of the state-wide tour led by GPS Youth leader Gerald Rentap.
Dr Abdul Rahman said that the people-centric GPS would continue to work hard to keep their overwhelming support given by the people in the last state election.
“At the same time, we will go all out to ensure that Batu Danau and Bukit Kota remain the fortress of GPS in the coming state election,” he added.
