KUCHING, March 19: Sarawak United Peoples’ Party (SUPP) Youth is urging Gabungan Parti Sarawak (GPS) to keep ‘political chameleon’ Parti Sarawak Bersatu (PSB), formerly known as United People’s Party (UPP), out of the ruling coalition.
Its secretary-general, Milton Foo, observed that PSB kept changing from time to time to suit their political convenience.
“Most PSB leaders, and indeed all elected representatives of PSB, are from SUPP. After leaving SUPP, they formed and joined Teras in 2014. From Teras, they established UPP; and from UPP, (they) rebrand to PSB,” he said in a press statement today.
“Just like a chameleon, the party is endowed with the ability to change colour.”
Foo questioned whether GPS really needs a partner or a component party or ally such as PSB?
“The answer is obvious,” he emphasised.
He pointed out that the leaders who currently served as assemblypersons in PSB, in fact, won their seats under the Barisan Nasional (BN) ticket by resigning from UPP in 2016 state election. They did not fulfil their undertaking to join any BN component party post-election, as promised to the former chief minister, the late Pehin Sri Adenan Satem.
“The inner character will never change as a chameleon is best at changing colour from its appearance to mislead the people in believing that PSB keeps changing ‘to serve people better’.
“With this in mind, we call upon the wisdom of GPS leaders to make a decisive final call to keep PSB out of GPS as their political culture is contrary to GPS.
“They (PSB) are also challenging the leadership of GPS as well as the spirit of unity among the component parties,” he cautioned. — DayakDaily
