Something is simmering in Kuching, and it’s not just the fragrant laksa (rice noodle) soup of Sarawak’s capital. Long seen as the barometer of Chinese politics in Sarawak, the Stampin constituency at the 14th general elections (GE14) will see a contest between the leaders of two political parties that claim to speak for the Sarawak Chinese community. Te two parties are the Sarawak Democratic Action Party (DAP) and the Sarawak United Peoples Party (SUPP), fondly known by the locals as "soup".
