There is no need to speculate anymore and Tan Sri William Mawan is a member of PBB and his membership number is 470000
This is the two page statement to the Press/Media from Assemblyman for Pakan and MP205 Saratok.
Mawan confirms his PBB membership
KUCHING – I wish to affirm that I have been a member of Parti Pesaka Bumiputera Bersatu (PBB) since 2016. My party membership number is 470,000.
My admission into the party came in the wake of some uncertainty over the status of some BN- friendly canddates in the run-up to the 2016 State Election.
This declaration is a follow up to my earlier press statement in January 2018 in which I did indicate that I would disclose my BN component party membership status at an appropriate time.
I had to defer this announcement to today in view of the current political situation in Saratok.
I would like to reiterate that I have always been a true-blue Barisan Nasional (BN) member.
On my status as a prospective candidate in the GE14, the decision lies entirely with the BN and PBB leadership. I respect their decision.
As to the status of Pakan state constituency, which I represent, it will now be held by PBB, by consequence of implication.
I hope my affirmation and declaration will put to rest, henceforth, all speculations in regard to my status as MP and State Assemblyman.
