1. GPS KNOWS WHAT’S BEST FOR SARAWAKIANS
Gabungan Parti Sarawak (GPS) knows what is best for its people and will continue to provide a secured future for their children.
Telang Usan assemblyman Dennis Ngau said, being a true Sarawak-based political alliance, there is no way for GPS to turn its back on the people.
Dennis reminded the people of Sarawak to learn from the past by not gambling the state’s future with Pakatan Harapan’s political rhetoric.
Pakatan Harapan had claimed that they would bring better development to Sarawak if they were in power, but Dennis pointed out that they did not have to wait for that day to come because as government at federal level it is their duty and responsibility to ensure progress in all the states in Malaysia, regardless of their political affiliation.

The Health Ministry is urged to probe a claim of doctor negligence in the 19th rabies death in Sarawak.
Yesterday, Health director-general Datuk Dr. Noor Hisham Abdullah in a statement said the 61-year-old woman from Pending, passed away at 10.47pm Wednesday at the Sarawak General Hospital, where she had been receiving intensive care treatment since June 8.
Deputy Chief Minister Datuk Amar Douglas Uggah said if proven true, it would be the second such case recorded in the state where a doctor had failed to refer a dog-bite patient to the Rabies Clinic.
He added such a case of alleged negligence is very serious and should not happen, because it is imperative for doctors to adhere to the Standard Operating Procedure set by the Health Ministry.
