KUCHING: Parti Sarawak Bersatu (PSB) president Wong Soon Koh should not use the name of Chief Minister Datuk Patinggi Abang Johari Tun Openg to hide his weaknesses, said Parti Pesaka Bumiputera Bersatu (PBB) Youth deputy chief Miro Simuh.
“Soon Koh is playing hide and seek. Please, stop seeking political mileage by tarnishing the chief minister’s name and position,” he said regarding Soon Koh’s response to Abang Johari remarks that PSB was a party for problem bunch.
He said it was clear that the main reason Abang Johari, who was the deputy chief minister then, supported the formation of the United People’s Party, a splinter of United People’s Party (SUPP) was because he did not want to a see a break-up among the coalition in Barisan Nasional (BN) Sarawak at that time.
“Then before he was appointed as chief minister and under the leadership of the late Pehin Sri Adenan Satem, Abang Johari wanted SUPP and UPP to reconcile and regroup as one party.
“I personally think that Soon Koh was not keen on that move and strongly wanted to become another political entity,” he said.
Miro said when Soon Koh formed PSB, it showed Sarawakians the true colour of the latter and his followers.
