Wan Junaidi urges Soon Koh not to resort to low blows to gain influence

Datuk Seri Dr Wan Junaidi Tuanku Jaafar

KUCHING, Sept 15: Don’t resort to wallowing in the mud and crawling in the gutter in an attempt to seek people’s mandate in upcoming Sarawak Election.

This is the view of Parti Pesaka Bumiputera Bersatu (PBB) Supreme Council member Datuk Seri Wan Junaidi Tuanku Jaafar in response to Parti Sarawak Bersatu (PSB) president Datuk Seri Wong Soon Koh’s recent statement, alleging that PBB president Datuk Patinggi Abang Johari Tun Openg has been involved in the formation of PSB.

Wan Junaidi who is also Santubong MP reminded Wong who is the former Second Finance Minister not to go overboard when manoeuvring for political mileage.

“To Datuk Seri Wong Soon Koh, please do not discredit yourself and do not stoop so low because it reflects your nature, character and trait. Remember that in every human endeavour, even in war, or in any ‘free fight’, there are limits and rules of engagement.

“Politics is seeking mandate from the rakyat and you have aspired to be on the top. Let’s not wallow in the mud and crawling in the gutter,” Wan Junaidi asserted in a statement today.


He opined humans are generally governed by strict rules of engagement in any conflict situations, even in war time.

“Similarly, in politics, proper conduct and understandable limits of profanities are to be observed at all times because we can never tell when we are going to sit at the same table again to discuss on the state or national policies as well as people’s interests,” Wan Junaidi added.

The Entrepreneur Development and Co-operatives Minister also took the opportunity to ask PSB members whether they should put their trust in the present leadership.

He then went one step further to ask if Sarawakians can give a mandate to Wong who failed to honour the “code of secrecy” of comradeship.

In a recent statement, Wong had claimed that Abang Johari who is also the Chief Minister, played a part in the formation of PSB. In response, Abang Johari issued a statement, clarifying that he allowed PSB to be formed with the hope that finally PSB, as a splinter party of Sarawak United Peoples’ Party (SUPP) will finally reconcile with SUPP. — DayakDaily
