MyMP Survey


Development in the area of education, social, health, safety and infrastructure (PESKI) of the Tawau Parliamentary constituency as described in my manifesto during the 13th general election campaign:

  • Development in the area of education, economic, social, health, safety and infrastructure (PESKI);
  • All fields of “peski” (sic) have established their respective bureau to plan and implement specific programmes based on the requirements of the Tawau community.

Peranan Wakil Rakyat

  • Assisted by a team that is committed and dedicated; the team should also carry out its task with integrity, honesty, and with transparency particularly in the management of finances, development projects and in the implementation of community development programmes.
  • Meet constituents often and fulfil promises made during the 13th general election.
  • To listen to the views of the voters in the constituency and to provide assistance based on abilities. To avoid making empty promises.
  • Establish close and friendly relations with state assembly persons, leaders of party components, village leaders. Also, to ensure cooperation can be implemented for the welfare of all parties.
  • To foster collaboration with government agencies (state and Federal), NGOs and GLCs.

Cadangan Buku

“Good to Great” by Jim Collins. This book describes the characteristics of effective leadership. This book also offers many authentic examples and seeing as a Member of Parliament is a leader, this book is suitable to be read and practiced.
