KUCHING, May 17: Gabungan Parti Sarawak (GPS) is a separate political entity which is working closely together with Perikatan Nasional (PN) government.
GPS secretariat today issued a statement declaring its support for Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin.
“The Secretariat of Gabungan Parti Sarawak (GPS) states clearly that GPS is a separate entity, only working closely with the PN federal government for the good of Malaysia and Sarawak.
“GPS remain as a coalition of the four Sarawak-based parties namely Parti Pesaka Bumiputra Bersatu (PBB), Parti Rakyat Sarawak (PRS), Sarawak United Peoples’ Party (SUPP), and Progressive Democratic Party (PDP).
“GPS is giving an all out support to Yang Amat Berhormat Tan Sri Dato’ Haji Muhyidin Yassin as the Prime Minister of Malaysia and as the leader of the PN federal government. GPS is therefore supporting the PN federal government,” said GPS secretariat.
It further stressed that the Sarawak ruling coalition believed that as of now, Muhyiddin is the best option for Sarawak.
“GPS is not immersed in Perikatan Nasional but merely cooperating as a partner to it to ensure the common good of the people especially the Sarawakians.
“GPS believe that the PN federal government under the leadership of Tan Sri Dato’ Haji Muhyidin Yassin is the best option for Sarawak for now.
“It is the objective of GPS to ensure stability of the federal government, because only by being stable can the federal government delivers and implements the socioeconomic development to the country including to Sarawak,” said GPS secretariat.
It is suspected that GPS secretariat issued the statement in response to the recent political manoeuvring which has been on going in Peninsular Malaysia where Pakatan Harapan (PH) is now making an attempt to unseat Muhyiddin through initiating a no-confidence vote in Parliament which will convene tomorrow (Mar 18).
The one-day Parliament however, is expected to be only featuring the opening address of the Yang di-Pertuan Agong. — DayakDaily
