December 15, 2017

KUCHING: Menteri Pelancongan, Kesenian, Kebudayaan, Belia dan Sukan Datuk Abdul Karim Rahman Hamzah sekadar berteka-teki mengenai jawatan yang akan ditandinginya pada Perhimpunan Agung Tritahunan (TGM) Parti Pesaka Bumiputera Bersatu (PBB).

Abdul Karim may go for VP post in PBB TGM

December 15, 2017

KUCHING: Four-term Asajaya assemblyman Datuk Abdul Karim Rahman Hamzah is keen to contest for a party post in Parti Pesaka Bumiputra Bersatu (PBB) Triennial General Meeting (TGM) on Feb 8-12, next year.

Abdul Karim was all smiles when asked by reporters on the subject matter and said that if anything he will be going for just the PBB Supreme Council Member post or a higher position in the party as one of PBB vice presidents.

“But we must wait for all the PBB branches and sub-branches annual general meeting to be completed by Dec 31 before deciding on anything,” he said when met after receiving a courtesy call by the Sarawak Arms Sport Association (Sasa) at his office in Masja yesterday.

Keputusan Khairy gugur tiga sukan dari sukan teras tidak ambil kira pandangan negeri-negeri terlibat SUKMA

KUCHING: Menteri Pelancongan, Kesenian, Kebudayaan, Belia dan Sukan, Datuk Abdul Karim Rahman Hamzah berasa amat sedih dengan keputusan Menteri Belia dan Sukan Khairy Jamaluddin menggugurkan sepak takraw, angkat berat dan taekwondo daripada senarai sukan teras termasuk pada SUKMA 2018 di Perak.

Menurutnya, beliau hairan bagaimana keputusan ini dibuat sedangkan negerinegeri sudah dipanggil bermesyuarat dan keputusan muktamad telah dibuat awal tahun ini tentang sukansukan yang akan dipertandingkan pada SUKMA Perak 2018.

“Negeri-negeri termasuk Sarawak sudah mengatur persiapan dengan mengadakan pencarian atlet, menghantar mereka untuk pendedahan dalam pertandingan di luar dan dalam negeri, menyewa premis untuk latihan dan tempat tinggal untuk atlet dari kawasan pedalaman yang dipilih.

KUCHING: Sarawak’s bid to capture the overall championship crown in next year’s Sukma XIX in Perak has taken a big blow following the Youth and Sports Minister Khairy Jamaluddin’s announcement to drop three sports – Taekwondo, Weightlifting and Sepak Takraw – from the national games.

This is because Taekwondo and Weightlifting are among the major medal contributors for the Sarawak team in Sukma.

Minister of Tourism, Arts, Culture, Youth and Sports Datuk Abdul Karim Rahman Hamzah was clearly not in a good mood when contacted yesterday.
