KUCHING, Nov 21: Former Sarawak Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) chairman Larry Sng is now the deputy president of a new national party called Parti Bangsa Malaysia, or previously known as Sarawak Workers’ Party (SWP).
Former SWP president Engga Unchat said he himself and all other former SWP exco members have reached a consensus to step down and let new blood take over the party management during the party’s recent Extraordinary General Meeting (EGM) on Nov 14.
With his re-election as an exco member of Parti Bangsa Malaysia, Engga said SWP is now renamed Parti Bangsa Malaysia and the new party has been approved by the Registrar of Societies (ROS) on Oct 27.
“The exco members of Parti Bangsa Malaysia will be announced in the near future.
“Now, this party has become a national party and the membership is open to the whole Malaysia,” he said in a recorded video today.
Seen together with Engga were former SWP secretary-general Lavenia Mawas and Sng who is also the Julau MP.
Following Sng’s resignation and withdrawal from PKR on February 28, he has remained an independent MP.
According to a Malay Mail report, Tebrau MP Steven Choong who also quit PKR the same time as Sng in February is in line with Sng in forming this new political party which they claim is a party for all races.
Choong also revealed that Parti Bangsa Malaysia would be led by a Malay president, but they would not be an MP. — DayakDaily
