SDGA Statement on New CM
The Sarawak Dayak Graduates Association (SDGA) welcomes with cautious optimism the appointment of Datuk Seri Adenan Satem as Sarawak 5th Chief Minister. The association noted that under the present political system, the sitting Chief Minister has the prerogative to choose his successor. In this context, and taking into consideration party hierarchy, it saddened association members that a person holding the second most senior position in the party hierarchy, who happened to be a Dayak, was not even mentioned, yet alone considered as a possible candidate for the post. To most Dayak, this is a challenge, if not a setback to our Prime Minister’s who strongly advocate a policy of 1Malaysia and inclusiveness.
