Prove loyalty first if you want to join GPS

Date:

KUCHING: Puncak Borneo MP Datuk Willie Mongin and independent Lubok Antu MP Jugah Muyang, who had applied to join Gabungan Parti Sarawak (GPS) component parties, were told to prove their loyalty first.

Parti Pesaka Bumiputera Bersatu (PBB) senior vice-president Datuk Seri Dr Stephen Rundi Utom said he could stop anyone from joining the party.

“But, the decision must be made based on what members of the party had observed the politicians who wanted to join PBB had done.

Speaking to newsmen after the launch of AgroInvest Sarawak here today, Dr Rundi said PBB had to consult the grassroots due to the way they (Willie and Jugah) move in their political lives.

Willie had applied to join PBB while Jugah applied to join Parti Rakyat Sarawak (PRS). Both PBB and PRS are component parties of GPS. Two other components of GPS are Sarawak United People’s Party (SUPP) and People’s Democratic Party (PDP).

“We cannot allow some people to be like ‘I’m a little hot here, let me move here a little bit’,” he said, adding that he had been with the party for a very long time and this term would be his fifth.

“I don’t think I’ll ever want to hop to any other party. If I ever want to stop, I’ll stop here.”

Dr Rundi was commenting on the recent announcements by Willie and Jugah that they had submitted their applications to join PBB and PRS respectively sometime three months ago.

He said Sarawakians had shown tremendous support for GPS and this could not be jeopardised, adding: “Anybody who wants or is willing to fight for Sarawak, they are my friend or our friend.”
