PSB refutes ex-member’s reasons for quitting party

Date:

KUCHING: Parti Sarawak Bersatu (PSB) has refuted an accusation by a former member who claimed that he was forced to borrow money to fund his election campaign resulting in him quitting the party.

In a statement to rebut the accusation, PSB presidential council expressed disappointment with Datuk Seri Aditajaya Alwi for coming up with such an accusation to justify his resignation.

“The party has never forced its members to do anything against the fundamental principles of our party. We value and uphold the freedom of choice and freedom to participate freely or to leave the party.

“We respect the rights of any individual to join or leave the party. We maintain the stand that the party is bigger than any individual,” the party’s presidential council said in a statement on Tuesday (Nov 23).

“We are therefore disappointed that Aditajaya has sought to justify his resignation from PSB by publicly accusing PSB of forcing him to borrow money to create a negative public impression that PSB was coercing or bullying him just weeks before the next state election.”

Aditajaya, joined PSB after quitting Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) on November 27, 2020. He, however, decided to quit PSB a few days ago.

On a separate issue, PSB denied that Aditajaya was a member of its presidential council.

“Aditajaya is fully aware of this when he first joined the party. He was only invited to attend the party’s presidential council meetings.”
