PH Sarawak to restructured and Larry not replaced; Chong remains chairman


KUCHING: Pakatan Harapan (PH) Sarawak has announced its office bearers and committee members after a restructuring exercise following the resignation of Julau MP Larry Sng as Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) Sarawak chairman.

Chong Chieng Jen remains as PH Sarawak chairman, while Miri MP Dr Michael Teo has been elected as deputy chairman I and Parti Amanah Negara (Amanah) Sarawak chairman Abang Abdul Halil Abang Naili as deputy chairman II.

Chong said the other office bearers were Alan Ling (secretary), Chiew Chiu Sing (treasurer), Saifunnizam Sam (Youth chief), Violet Yong (Women chief), Abang Zulkifli Abang Engkeh (publicity secretary), Joshua Jabeng (Land Reform Bureau chief), and Leon Jimat Donald (Civil Service Reform Bureau chief).

He said committee members comprised Roland Engan, David Wong, Maxwell Rojis, Andri Zulkarnaen, Mohd Fadillah Sabali, and Dr Kelvin Yii.

“The bureaus will table their reports in two weeks’ time. The two respective bureaus as well as the publicity secretary will table their respective working papers and proposals for the committee to deliberate on,” he said during a press conference at Democratic Action Party (DAP) Sarawak Headquarters today.

Regarding the distribution of seats between PH component parties DAP, PKR, and Amanah for the upcoming State Election (PRN12), he said the agreement established between the parties would remain.

“It is still considered a valid agreement that will form the basis of areas to be contested in the coming PRN12,” said Chong.

However, he said, they were open to readjustments in certain areas if mutually agreed upon. If there was no mutual agreement on such readjustments, he said the basis of the initial agreement would operate as a binding agreement for the parties.

When asked to comment on Sng’s resignation, he said despite turncoats, betrayals, and frogging along the way, PH Sarawak’s cause, political struggle, vision, and mission remained true.

Meanwhile, Dr Teo said Sng’s replacement would likely only come after the upcoming PRN12 as the party wanted to focus on PRN12.

“Now, we consolidate and unite. After the election then we will probably (conduct) the election of chairman – that would be a better time,” he said.

In the interim, he said PKR was being run by a Council of Elders.
