KUCHING, June 3: Parti Rakyat Sarawak (PRS) youth describes the politicians who recently joined Parti Sarawak Bersatu (PSB) as “non-founders” only seeking to assert their stake and ideas in another party, failing which they will fight from within.
“They are in fact non-founders of the party and therefore carry no sense of belonging to their temporary shelters and will not seal their permanent attachment there.
“Their hopping history justify this. They are not new in their undertakings and minds. Their ideas are not fresh either. The only new thing is the temporary shelter where they take refuge.
“All they want is to reinforce their stake and stale ideas in a new place failing which they will fight from within. That’s their characters on how to stand tall, if they ever would. Quite often, they crumble,” said PRS youth exco member Sam Tugau in a press statement today.
He said PRS Youth concurred with two political analysts – Prof Dr Jayum Jawan of University Putra Malaysia and Assoc Prof Dr Awang Azman Awang Pawi from University Malaya – who both described these elected representatives who jumped to PSB as “political rejects” and “political refugees” seeking shelter to survive.
“It is quite apparent, even in the eyes of a layman, that these hopping lawmakers didn’t jump to PSB based on their political principles but more of the need to survive, being desperate and are left with no choices, constrained by time and financial consideration in view of the impending PRN12 (12th Sarawak Elections).
Sam was responding to PSB Miri chief Bruce Chai’s statement that “PSB is moving forward with teams of like-minded leaders” which was published in a local daily today.
“Looks like PSB provides them with a pond to breed and survive. It’s purely personal survival. In no time, when matured they will hop out from the pond again,” said Sam.—DayakDaily
