Sentosa Island Kota representative ready to play against Mr. Chong

Kuching: Kota Sentosa MP Wilfred Yap is open to engaging in a public discussion with Sarawak DAP chairman Chong Cheng Jen, with a particular focus on constituency issues.

He said the opposition leader was a three-term member of the Kota Sentosa State Assembly and it was appropriate for him to share what he had done for the people of his constituency.

Furthermore, Mr Chong is the current MP for Stampin, which also covers Kota Sentosa (the state seat), so it is appropriate for him to discuss the development of the constituency during his tenure.

“The public debate with Mr Chong and I must be relevant to the voters of Kota Sentosa and whether the constituency will function better under the Gabungan Party Sarawak MP or whether it has been left behind for 15 years. “It has to be about issues for which both parties are responsible, such as takata,” he said in a statement today.

Mr Yap was responding to a letter he received from Mr Chong’s special assistant Michael Cong, proposing his views on several topics to be discussed, namely housing and local government issues. Accountability, transparency and education in Sarawak.

Mr Kong also suggested that a public debate be held at Kuching Civic Center or Raia Hotel and Convention Center from 7.30pm on May 9.

Although Mr Yap is willing to speak on issues relating to his constituency, he does not hold a government post directly involved in policy-making on integrity issues, so the proposal to discuss accountability and transparency with Mr Cong is It’s a complete waste of time, he said. .

“I am just an ordinary YB, do not hold any government position, and am not responsible for the integrity, accountability, and transparency policies, regulations, guidelines, and procedures of any government department, department, local government, or government-related company. “I was not directly involved in its creation,” he said.

Additionally, the passage of the Ombudsman Ordinance 2023 in Sarawak reflects the state government’s commitment to fostering a culture of integrity that includes accountability that goes beyond simply avoiding corruption, embezzlement and fraud.

He said the ordinance emphasizes the importance of holding individuals in government accountable for their actions, decisions and their consequences.
