Datuk Seri Fatimah Abdullah

KUCHING: The Women’s Wing of Gabungan Parti Sarawak (GPS) concurred with a statement by GPS Secretariat on the coalition’s stance as a separate entity working closely with Perikatan Nasional (PN) federal government for the common good of Sarawak and the country.

Its chief Datuk Seri Fatimah Abdullah said GPS was cooperating as a partner and giving support to Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin as the leader of the PN federal government.

GPS believes that the PN under the leadership of Muhyiddin was the best option for Sarawak for now and to ensure political stability in delivering and implementing the socio-economic development of the country.

“The women’s wing of each of GPS’ component parties — Parti Pesaka Bumiputera Bersatu (PBB), Sarawak United People’s Party (SUPP), Parti Rakyat Sarawak (PRS) and Progressive Democratic Party (PDP) — also concurred with the statement of GPS Secretariat,” she told New Sarawak Tribune yesterday.

She said this to explain GPS’ involvement as one of six signatories of a memorandum of understanding (MOU) signed on Sunday to formalise PN.

Fatimah also noted that the MOU would be helpful to Sarawak and Sabah which have been asking for the restoration of their respective rights as enshrined in the Malaysia Agreement 1963 (MA63) inked 57 years ago.
