MIRI: SUPP is appealing to Sarawakians working and living in Brunei to come back home to vote.
Its election director for Miri, Andy Chia (pic), said there are thousands of Sarawakians living across the border because they are working in the sultanate.
“These Sarawakians in Brunei must come back en masse and cast their votes.
“Ballotting day on Saturday is also a day off in Brunei, so they should be able to cross the border in time to vote.
“Come back early to avoid traffic congestion at the border checkpoint.
“Every vote counts. For those Sarawakians working and living in Brunei, Sarawak is still their home.
“Their votes are important for the sake of voting in a good government,” he said.
Chia said the border checkpoint opens from 6am to midnight, so Sarawakians can come and vote and still return to Brunei without having to rush.
He believes that there are many Sarawakians working and living in Brunei who will vote for the Barisan Nasional.
