Datuk Alexander Nanta Linggi

KUCHING: Gabungan Parti Rakyat (GPS) yesterday reaffirmed its support to Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin to ensure political stability in the country.

GPS secretary general Datuk Alexander Nanta Linggi said the coalition is a partner in the Perikatan Nasional (PN) federal government.

“It shall continue to safeguard, protect and fight for Sarawak rights in accordance with the federal and state constitutions, Malaysia Agreement 1963 (MA63) and the Inter-Governmental Committee (lGC) Report,” he said in a statement issued and signed by him after a GPS supreme council meeting chaired by Chief Minister Datuk Patinggi Abang Johari Tun Openg at Wisma Bapa Malaysia here yesterday.

Also present at the meeting were Parti Rakyat Sarawak (PRS) president Tan Sri Dr James Jemut Masing and Sarawak United People’s Party (SUPP) president Datuk Dr Sim Kui Hian.

Nanta said the state ruling coalition reaffirmed its backing of the Bersatu president as head of the federal government in the interest of the nation and to ensure a stable federal government.

Leaders of the opposition Pakatan Harapan (PH) coalition had recently made known their intention to unseat Muhyiddin through a no-confidence vote in Parliament, on the premise that the premier does not have enough number of MPs backing him as the government head.
