MIRI: The coming state election may see Sarawak United People’s Party (SUPP) president Datuk Patinggi Tan Sri Dr George Chan face off with a candidate from Democratic Action Party (DAP) in Piasau, a seat which he has held for six terms.
This is because as reported in a Chinese daily, lawyer Ling Sie Kiong, 28, will take on the veteran politician in the seat which saw Dr Chan beating many opposition candidates in previous elections.
“It’s up to Pakatan Rakyat (PR) to decide with my party, DAP, if they want me to stand there. I will go all out and accept the challenge,” Ling said to The Borneo Post when met at his office yesterday afternoon, adding as a life member of DAP he would abide by the party’s decision whether to put him in Piasau or other areas.
