PRS, Masing should not dictate GPS structure, setup’

June 18, 2018

SIBU: Parti Rakyat Sarawak (PRS) and Tan Sri Datuk Amar Dr James Jemut Masing should not dictate on how Gabungan Parti Sarawak (GPS) structure and setup should be.

According to Minister of Tourism, Arts, Culture, Youth and Sports Datuk Abdul Karim Rahman Hamzah, GPS has just been set up and yet to be fine-tuned.

“GPS is even not registered with Registrar of Societies (ROS) yet. Why use the media to put in your terms and conditions?

“This are matters that are supposed to be discussed in close-door (meetings) among ‘members’ who aspire to be members and a part of this coalition,” he said today.

KUCHING: The announcement on Tuesday to leave Barisan Nasional (BN) is for the good of Sarawak, says Minister of Tourism, Arts, Culture, Youth and Sports Datuk Abdul Karim Rahman Hamzah.

He said this was an opportunity for Sarawak to enhance relations and cooperation with the federal government under Pakatan Harapan (PH).

“Sarawak, which still needs a lot of development, cannot function well without help from the federal government. We also believe in the federalism concept. That is why the move is necessary,” he told the press during the breaking-of-fast with the media organised by Sarawak Tourism Board at Borneo Convention Centre Kuching (BCCK) on Tuesday.
