Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) Baram Chairman Roland Engan said 75 per cent of the local community leaders had submitted their applications to Putrajaya for approval.

He said that a total of 178 from three areas namely Marudi (70); Mulu (67) and Telang Usan (41) had submitted their names and were being processed.

“A lot of kampung people are beginning to understand MPKKP,” he said, explaining that there were no longer any issues regarding the role of MPKKP.
