Abang Jo: GPS “more or less” official, awaiting official RoS letter

Datuk Patinggi Abang Johari Tun Openg

KUCHING, August 23: The Gabungan Parti Sarawak (GPS) coalition is just a step away from being officially recognised as the state government is now awaiting an official letter from the Registrar of Societies (RoS).

Chief Minister Datuk Patinggi Abang Johari Tun Openg, who is also the coalition’s chairman, said GPS is now “more or less” official.

“We will launch it later. It is more or less approved. Just waiting for the official letter (from RoS),” he told reporters after officiating at Parti Pesaka Bumiputera Bersatu (PBB) Satok Service Centre here this morning.

The setting up of GPS was announced on June 12, 2018, right after the 14th general election (GE14) on May 9, as Abang Johari also announced four Sarawak parties have exited the Barisan Nasional (BN) coalition.

The four parties are PBB, Parti Rakyat Sarawak (PRS), Sarawak United Peoples’ Party (SUPP) and Progressive Democratic Party (PDP).

GPS’ logo was supposed to be revealed and launched during Sarawak Day on July 22 but did not receive any approval from the authorities, and hence the unveiling was delayed. — DayakDaily
