The deafening silence which echoed through the FOUR WALLS OF PRS HEADQUARTERS” has woken up the TIGER OF SPDP. We have this copied from Bernama news through Sarawak update .com…..
MIRI, Feb 27 (Bernama) — Sarawak Progressive Democratic Party (SPDP) treasurer-general, Datuk Seri Tiong King Sing had asked the party’s senior vice-president Datuk Peter Nansian to name the personality in SPDP who is the stumbling block in the efforts to merge with Parti Rakyat Sarawak (PRS).
In a statement e-mailed to Bernama here on Saturday, Tiong said the group who disagreed with party president Datuk Seri William Mawan Ikom should be bold enough to name the individual rather than making remarks that could only spark speculations.
“I kindly urge Nansian, as well as others with him to immediately stop such comments which is underestimating the intelligence of the majority of the party members,” he added.
He issued the challenge following recent news reports carrying Nansian’s allegations that Mawan and his deputy, Datuk Peter Nyarok were being controlled by a certain personality in SPDP that led them to be unable to act on the merger process.
The challenge was also directed at PRS president Datuk Seri Dr James Jemut Masing who, Nansian had reportedly said, also knew the personality being referred to.
SPDP and PRS, two of the four Barisan Nasional Sarawak component parties, had been discussing the merging for the last five years but the issue heated up again last week after Nansian, along with four other SPDP elected representatives, wanted it to be done immediately.
The other elected representatives with him are Marudi assemblyman, Sylvester Entrie Muran, Batu Danau assemblyman Paulus Palu Gumbang, Bekenu assemblywoman Rosey Yunus and Mas Gading Member of Parliament, Datuk Dr Tiki Lafe.
