All-out fight for Sibu on the cards
GE13 WATCH Given that incumbent Wong Ho Leng will not defend the Sibu parliamentary seat on grounds of illness, the DAP can expect an all-out fight from rivals in Sarawak.
The Sarawak United People's Party (SUPP) is expected to field a heavyweight - Vincent Lau, 65 - in its bid to reclaim the seat lost by a slim majority of 398 votes in the 2010 by-election.
Vincent will face Oscar Ling, a 36-year-old pharmacist and Wong’s special assistant, who was named last month as the DAP’s candidate.
Keep Malaysiakini independent!
Malaysiakini will be 18 this year. That we’ve survived this long is because of you.
Your support matters. A lot. Especially those who pay RM150 annually, RM288 biennially or RM388 triennially to keep Malaysiakini independent from government/opposition influence and corporate interests. Advertising alone will not keep Malaysiakini afloat.
Together, we’ve gone far. We’ve covered three prime ministers, four general elections, five Bersih rallies, and countless scandals. But the journey continues.
Help us deliver news and views that matter to Malaysians. Help us make a difference for Malaysia.
