KUCHING: DAP adviser Lim Kit Siang today congratulated Sarawak Barisan Nasional Chairman Tan Sri Adenan Satem and team on their landslide victory in the Sarawak state election yesterday.

He also hoped Adenan would keep his ‘#AdenanTeam’ and ‘#AdenanWay’ promises.

On DAP’s failure to retain five of the 12 seats it won in 2011, Lim said DAP must not be afraid to lose in elections and must learn from the defeat to strengthen itself.

He said DAP was committed to promoting political change through democracy and must be prepared to face victories and defeats through the ballot.

“The problem in life’s struggle is not falling down but the ability to stand up after a fall, however big the fall, and to continue the battle,” he told a press conference here today.

DAP only won seven out 31 seats it contested in yesterday’s state election, while BN won 72 seats and PKR retained its three seats. -- BERNAMA
