SWP: Local non-GPS parties should form alliance to stand chance of winning state election

Munan Laja

KUCHING, June 23: Sarawak Workers Party president Munan Laja said that local parties outside Gabungan Parti Sarawak (GPS) must form an alliance if they dream of forming the state government.

In a statement, Munan said that the leaders must come together and consolidate before they go down to the people.

“The coalition must be formed as soon as possible. The country needs a new group coming in to bring in the new dawn for Sarawak,” he opined.

“The coming of state local parties together can stand a good chance as it doesn’t have excess baggage, never done anything wrong to the country and its people.

“Forming the coalition is the priority of Sarawak parties (outside GPS) now in order to see three-corner fights — Pakatan Harapan (PH), GPS and Sarawak local parties’ alliance,” he elaborated.

Munan said that he is all for this idea of coalition and he hoped everybody is on the same page. He opined if either GPS or PH form the state government in 2021, there won’t be change and things will go back to square one.

“After 50 years of previous rule, it’s time for change. We need to create a new Sarawak. The country needs reform,” he said. — DayakDaily
