Soon Kai and Soon Koh

This photo was taken when Datuk Patinggi Dr. Wong Soon Kai was re-elected in Sibu in the early 1980s. Dr. Wong was a humble medical doctor in Sibu before joining politics through SUPP. He later went on to become the President of SUPP and a Deputy Chief Minister of Sarawak. He was defeated by DAP and later retired from politics. Worth mentioning here is the person at right. He is Dato Seri Wong Soon Koh, a younger brother of Dr. Wong. Dato Seri Wong who was a secondary school principal is now Sarawak Second Finance Minister,Urban Development Minister and Tourism Minister. The two guys holding up Dr. Wong are still staunch supporter of SUPP.
