Datuk Alfred Yap Chin Loi is planning a big comeback in Kota Sentosa. There have been a serious membership drive to increase the number of SUPP new members in the constituency.
Talk of a membership transfer of 2000 hard-core SUPP members from either Padungan or Batu Kawa to Kota Sentosa is rife. According to trusted sources, it is now confirmed that the incumbent, YB Chong Chieng Jen will be staying in Kota Sentosa to fight off this upcoming threat. It was rumoured that Chong had wanted to move to another constituency in the upcoming state elections.
Yap had lost to Democratic Action Party (DAP) Sarawak secretary Chong Chieng Jen by 531 votes in the last elections. There are a total of 18,934 voters in Kota Sentosa. Today there is an increase of over 6,000 voters.
Kota Sentosa under Chong had experienced tremendous growth and development by both federal and state government.
