KUCHING, Dec 31: Gabungan Parti Sarawak (GPS) is not interested in participating in any political coup such as the purported ‘Dubai Move’ that will plunge the country into deeper crisis, says chief political secretary to the Sarawak Premier, Fazzrudin Abdul Rahman.

Fazzrudin was responding to Parti Bumi Kenyalang (PBK) president Voon Lee Shan’s call for GPS to seize opportunities from the purported ‘Dubai Move’.

“As has been said by Sarawak Premier Datuk Patinggi Tan Sri Abang Johari Tun Openg, GPS will continue to support the government led by Prime Minister Dato Seri Anwar Ibrahim until the next general election.

“This is because we need a stable federal government that will steer the nation’s economic recovery for the sake of the people,” he said in a press statement issued today.

He went on to say that Deputy Prime Minister Dato Sri Fadillah Yusof has echoed the same sentiment that GPS’ priority is to have a stable administration.

“We simply do not have the time to entertain political dramas that will affect the stability of the administration and undo our efforts to get the economy back on track.

“Under this federal government, Sarawak has seen many successes in returning the State’s rights as enshrined under Malaysia Agreement 1963 (MA63), Inter-Governmental Report (IGC) 1962, and the Federal Constitution,” he added.

Furthermore, Fazzrudin noted that the prime minister has expressed his willingness to address some of the agreements in MA63 and the unity government has managed to address several issues pertaining to this.

The chief political secretary also slammed Voon and PBK for trying to drive a wedge between Sarawakians and claimed they have never been sincere in fighting for Sarawak.

“I suggest that he (Voon) should open his eyes and acknowledge the success and accomplishments that were made by the GPS government and Premier Datuk Patinggi Tan Sri Abang Johari Tun Openg,” he added. — DayakDaily
