PBK hopes to arrest party-hopping trend among politicians

Voon Lee Shan

KUCHING, Aug 1: Parti Bumi Kenyalang (PBK) has come up with a mechanism to address the “frog disease” culture plaguing local politics, especially Sarawakian elected representatives.

Party president Voon Lee Shan, said PBK has sought opinions of many legal experts including from overseas in the hope of arresting this trend of party-hopping.

“It is a political cancer in which, we all have a responsibility to stop. PBK demands high integrity and will place a very heavy commitment on the heads of elected representatives of the party.

“PBK had sought opinions of many legal experts concerning problems of elected representatives hopping and betraying the party and the voters. Politics is not for making money. PBK is not a factory that churns out money but it is a party that churn out ideology, in quest of independence,” he said in a press statement, today.

It is for this reason, he said that potential candidates in PBK had been informed and they have to be self funding or seek help from their friends and supporters only.

“PBK is serious in its quest for independence for Sarawak and the potential candidates and leaders in the party had been briefed about this. In the quest of independence, PBK had sought legal opinions overseas including a judge from America and a Law Professor Emeritus from Canada recently,” he added.

Voon also stated that PBK had written letters to the United Nations (UN) and the United Kingdom and also to the Pakatan Harapan (PH) government concerning the problems faced by Sarawak quest of independence and Sarawak rights to independence.

According to Voon, a copy of the letter had been sent to the Chief Minister Datuk Patinggi Abang Johari Tun Openg some months ago.

“Parti Bumi Kenyalang has many highly qualified people who hold Masters and Doctorate degrees to run the government.

“They are prepared to sacrifice their time and resources for Sarawak because they realise past governments could not help Sarawak much. Instead, Sarawak had lost its pride and many of its resources and skilled manpower to overseas.

“Your support for Parti Bumi Kenyalang is a support for Sarawak independence,” he said, adding that the 12th Sarawak elections (PRN) is a referendum itself for Sarawakians to decide whether or not Sarawakians support PBK for Sarawak independence. –DayakDaily.
