The Borneo Post - - HOME -

SIBU: Gabun­gan Parti Sarawak ( GPS) is not an anti- fed­eral en­tity but a plat­form to de­ter­mine the fu­ture of Sarawak, says As­sis­tant Min­is­ter of Ed­u­ca­tion and Tech­no­log­i­cal Re­search Dr An­nuar Ra­paee.

The PBB vice-pres­i­dent said the state-based coali­tion does not wish to ‘quar­rel’ or be un­co­op­er­a­tive with their Penin­su­lar Malaysia coun­ter­parts.

“We are not anti- fed­eral but we want to de­ter­mine our own fu­ture – the fu­ture of Sarawakians. GPS is a party by the peo­ple, of the peo­ple and for the peo­ple of Sarawak, formed to pro­tect the rights of Sarawak.

“Af­ter more than 50 years of form­ing Malaysia, the time has come for us to de­ter­mine our di­rec­tion. The fu­ture of Sarawak should be in the hands of Sarawakians,” he said when ad­dress­ing over 1,000 sup­port­ers from the four GPS com­po­nent

We must un­der­stand that this is a no­ble strug­gle for the fu­ture of Sarawakians and this is the most im­por­tant mes­sage that I want to con­vey to all Sarawakians. Dr An­nuar Ra­paee, As­sis­tant Min­is­ter of Ed­u­ca­tion and Tech­no­log­i­cal Re­search

par­ties PBB, PRS, SUPP and PDP, at MUC hall here Sun­day night.

Also there were SUPP deputy pres­i­dent II Chieng Buong Toon, Youth chief Michael Tiang and po­lit­i­cal sec­re­tary to the chief min­is­ter, Romeo Christo­pher Te­gong.

Ear­lier, Dr An­nuar, who is As­sis­tant Min­is­ter of Hous­ing and Pub­lic Health, wel­comed the ar­rival of some 60 GPS Flag Rally con­voy mem­bers led by La­yar as­sem­bly­man Ger­ald Ren­tap, who is also GPS Youth chief.

The con­voy had ear­lier stopped over in Se­lan­gau.

Dr An­nuar high­lighted that it is most im­por­tant that GPS be clearly un­der­stood by all Sarawakians ir­re­spec­tive of race.

“We must un­der­stand that this is a no­ble strug­gle for the fu­ture of Sarawakians and this is the most im­por­tant mes­sage that I want to con­vey to all Sarawakians.”

He also called on the au­di­ence to spread the mes­sage that the GPS’s horn­bill logo will be used in the com­ing state elec­tion.

To get the ball rolling in his Nangka con­stituency, Dr An­nuar said com­po­nent party mem­bers would be go­ing door-to- door to in­form res­i­dents that this logo must be sup­ported as it rep­re­sents Sarawakians.

As­sis­tant Min­is­ter of Youth and Sports Datuk Snow­dan Lawan also spoke at the func­tion.
