Party to seek legal recourse

Date:

KUCHING: See Chee How, who has just quit Parti Sarawak Bersatu (PSB) must be fully aware of the commitments, both oral and written, that he had given to the party before he was selected to be the party’s candidate in the Batu Lintang constituency.

PSB president Datuk Seri Wong Soon Koh said that this included an undertaking to compensate the party if the latter chooses to resign after winning the seat.

“It also included an undertaking to resign from his position as an elected representative if he resigns from PSB after winning the seat,” he said in a statement on Today (Aug 14) following See’s resignation from the party.

Wong said the Batu Lintang assemblyman, being a senior lawyer, knew what he had committed to in writing before he was given the ‘Surat Watikah’ to represent PSB in the last Sarawak elections.

“As a matter of principle, PSB will avail itself of all necessary actions and remedies in respect of the commitments made by See,” he said.

He also said See was fully aware of the support and resources given to him by PSB as well as supporters of PSB.

“PSB deeply regrets the action of See in resigning as a member of the party after he won the Batu Lintang seat in the last Sarawak election as a representative of PSB,” he said.

Wong also confirmed that the party had received a letter from See to resign as a member of PSB.

Earlier on Sunday (Aug 14), State Legislative Assembly (DUN) Speaker Tan Sri Datuk Amar Mohamad Asfia Awang Nassar announced See’s resignation from PSB after receiving a resignation letter from See dated Aug 12.
