SIBU: A crowd of 1,500 wel­comed the Gabun­gan Parti Sarawak ( GPS) con­voy at Se­lan­gau, near here yes­ter­day.

Among them were Tamin assem­bly­man Christo­pher Gira and As­sis­tant Min­is­ter of Na­tive Laws and Cus­toms Datuk John Sikie Tayai, who is also Kakus assem­bly­man.

“There are about 1,200 peo­ple from Tamin and 300 from Kakus. Peo­ple in Tamin and Kakus state con­stituen­cies have pledged to give full sup­port to GPS as a lo­cal- based party,” Gira told The Bor­neo Post when con­tacted yes­ter­day.

Mean­while, it was re­ported that about 60 youths and women from the four com­po­nent par­ties of GPS – Parti Pe­saka Bu­mi­put­era Ber­satu ( PBB), Parti Rakyat Sarawak ( PRS), Sarawak United Peo­ple’s Party ( SUPP) and Pro­gres­sive Demo­cratic Party ( PDP) – were in the con­voy to cre­ate aware­ness and pro­mote the logo es­pe­cially to the older gen­er­a­tion in the ru­ral ar­eas.

The con­voy, which is mak­ing 19 stops, started from Lawas, Lim­bang, be­fore head­ing to Miri, Bintulu, Mukah, Se­lan­gau and Sibu. It will then con­tinue to Kapit, Sarikei, Betong, Sri Aman, Balai Rin­gin, Se­rian, Sibu­ran, Bau, Lundu, Batu Kawah, Sadong Jaya, and Sa­ma­ra­han.

The con­voy mem­bers are led by La­yar assem­bly­man Ger­ald Ren­tap Jabu who is also Parti Pe­saka Bu­mi­put­era Ber­satu ( PBB) Youth chief.

They will all con­verge in Kuch­ing this Jan 19 for the of­fi­cial launch­ing of GPS at Sta­dium Sarawak.
