UPKO President Tan Sri Bernard Dompok, the Barisan Nasional candidate for P174 Penampang, had been intensifying his campaign in the last couple of days. He has been consistent in his message to the people that he is ready to be the elected representative of Penampang. He also reiterated his pledges to the people his commitment to serve them and to honour their mandate. Dompok, who shifted to Penampang from Ranau where UPKO vice-president Datuk Siringan Gubat was picked to defend the seat, was in Sugud on Monday night. Also present was his wife Puan Sri Diana Dompok, who had been accompanying her husband in the campaign trail, including to other constituencies such as Kuamut, Ranau, Bingkor, Nabawan and Putatan. Diana said that she was touched by the vocal support from the people in Penampang. “Women from all walks of life, young and old, have come up to me to express their joy with the return of my husband to Penampang. We appreciate their support,” she said in Sugud. The Sugud function was also attended by Datuk Clarence Bongkos Malakun, Datuk George Ginibun and Moyog polls director of operation Fred Moosom.
