Speculation rife Sarawak PKR reps to quit


However, Sarawak PKR chief Baru Bian denies he, See Chee How, and Ali Biju will be joining a Sarawak opposition party.

(FMT) – Rumours are rife in Sarawak that three Sarawak PKR assemblymen are set to ditch the party for a Sarawakian opposition party, the Borneo Post Online reported Friday.

The rumours claim that Sarawak PKR Chief and Ba’Kelalan Assemblyman Baru Bian, Batu Lintang Assemblyman See Chee How and Krian Assemblyman Ali Biju are going to join Parti Bumi Kenyalang (PBK), and that they had met PBK leaders to discuss the matter.

However, Baru, who was contacted by Borneo Post Online, said there was no truth to the rumour.

“We maintain our position which we have expressed before by See Chee How, that we will remain steadfast with PKR and Pakatan Harapan,” he said.

The rumours of the defections from PKR to a local party began after a number of Pakatan Harapan leaders in Sabah, including elected representatives, left PKR and the DAP to join local opposition parties.
