Allow more opposition leaders into the state to do their job – PKR women’s chief

Thankful for being allowed to enter Sarawak, PKR women’s chief Zuraida Kamaruddin hopes that the state government will allow more opposition leaders from Peninsular Malaysia to freely enter Sarawak.

Besides Zuraida, other PKR leader who were allowed to enter Sarawak on Saturday was its vice president and Lembah Pantai MP Nurul Izzah Anwar. Both leaders were previously among the opposition leaders from Peninsular Malaysia who were barred from entering the state.

“I hope the state government will be more democratic this time around and allow those from opposition parties to enter Sarawak to undertake our legitimate political activities. I believe that we also can bring in some valuable changes to Sarawak,” she told a press conference here when met at Kuching International Airport today.

Zuraida stressed that the PKR central leadership fully supports Sarawak’s autonomy.

In view of this, Zuraida was hopeful that this time around, Sarawakians would dare to make a change by voting for PH in the coming General Election.

“And we hope there will be few more parliamentary seats in Sarawak that can contribute to our success to take over Putrajaya (in the coming General Election).”

In Sarawak, Zuraida said the party will focus on several seats and will be working very hard to ensure that their candidates will win the seats.

“We have been maintaining our position all this while that these leaders are genuinely coming to Sarawak to assist in our political struggle here. They are not racists, extremists and bigots. I think this augurs well for the state to be free in that sense and we thank the authorities for that matter,” state PKR chairman Baru Bian added.
