Masing: We’ll wallop our opponents

(Borneo Post) – We will beat the heck out of them. That’s what PRS president Tan Sri Dr James Jemut Masing said when asked what he had in mind for the Opposition during the impending general election.

He said PRS was in battle-ready mode and would go full throttle when Parliament is dissolved.

“I am not worried about them (Oppostion), and I am very confident that we will beat the ‘heck’ out of them,” said Masing, who is also Minister of Land Development, yesterday.

On the recent endorsement of lawyer Abun Sui by PKR Hulu Rajang to stand in Hulu Rajang in the polls, Masing told The Borneo Post that this was their (PKR) business.

“They can decide whoever they want, but we will fight them. We have been fighting our opponents all these years.”

PKR Hulu Rajang chairman Frankie Bedindang Manjoh was quoted last week after its annual general meeting (AGM) that Abun was the ideal candidate as he had earned his reputation as a staunch defender of NCR land.

PRS’s parliamentary seats are Sri Aman, Lubok Antu, Julau, Selangau, Kanowit and Hulu Rajang.

Besides PKR, Sarawak Workers Party (SWP) is also eyeing seats belonging to PRS. Ever since its formation several months ago, SWP publicly announced that it would challenge PRS in all its six constituencies.

During PRS’s Supreme Council Meeting last Saturday, Masing said PRS 30 (comprising of members aged 30 and below) would play a significant role in helping the party retain all their six seats.

He said the party would basically utilise PRS 30 to touch base with youths.

The group would also use the social media such as Facebook and Twitter to gel with youths, he said.
