Why did you decide to enter politics?
To be the voice of Sarawakians especially the voice of the rakyat of Sri Aman, as I feel that a lot to be done in Sri Aman plus Sri Aman needs a voice to be the check & balance against BN
What is the fondest memory you have of your childhood?
Growing up in our family farm in Sri Aman. When we used to bathe & swim in clean river water during the weekends in the early 90's
If you are elected as our ADUN, which is the biggest issue that you would like to tackle first in YOUR constituency and how would you do it?
If elected, the first issue I will tackle would be making the Sri Aman Hospital completion a focal point. The whole of Sri Aman Division is suffering because of the delay in building the hospital.
What is your favourite Sarawakian food or drink?
Sarawak Laksa & Tuak
Describe the Sarawak you want to see in 10 years.
Politically, a progressive and vibrant democracy where a proper check & balance democracy will work & help the rakyat more where also the Party in Government does not have an absolute majority when they are able to change laws at their whim and fancy. In terms of economy & development, I would like to see a Sarawak with a fairer distribution of wealth, more transparent and more better social & business programs to the people.
Is there anything else you want to say to young voters?
This election is the most important election prior to the General Election in 2018 where the youth are in the situation to dictate which direction will our nation head to.
We can see where will we be heading if we are under the helm of BN, however we have also seen how the DAP have governed Penang with a competent, accountable and transparent manner, where a state with no natural resources is able to be administered successfully.
So I would like to appeal to the youths, to give DAP a chance to provide a good check & balance to the BN and if given the opportunity to become Government, we will be able to administer Sarawak even better than BN.
