KUCHING, Dec 4: The Sarawak United Peoples’ Party (SUPP) has today amended its party constitution to allow its incumbent president to apply to contest for the presidency after nine consecutive years of office.

According to a statement by SUPP today, this is provided that not less than half of SUPP’s Central Committee (CC) members present at the CC Meeting, and not less than half of the Delegates present at the Delegates Conference, voted in favour for the incumbent president’s nomination to contest.

The amendment, which is to add the new clause 40 (1)(b)(ii) to the party constitution, was unanimously approved in the party’s Delegates Conference held at Dewan Sa’ati at Jalan Tan Sri Ong Kee Hui earlier today.

Prior to this amendment, the president was not allowed to hold the office of president for more than nine years or three terms from the date he is elected or from the date he assumes office.

Meanwhile, the Delegates Conference also resolved to restrategise with the Youth wing and revamp the party’s Political Bureau. — DayakDaily
