KUCHING: The United Peo­ple’s Party (UPP) ex­tra­or­di­nary del­e­gates con­fer­ence has ap­proved and adopted three res­o­lu­tions.

Party sec­re­tary-gen­eral Ge­orge Lo said the res­o­lu­tions were to pledge the party’s sup­port to Sarawak Chief Min­is­ter Datuk Pat­inggi Abang Jo­hari Tun Openg’s lead­er­ship, and to call on the fed­eral gov­ern­ment to hon­our its elec­tion man­i­festo per­tain­ing to the state’s rights un­der the Malaysia Agree­ment 1963.

The third res­o­lu­tion stated the party’s readi­ness to work with any like-minded per­sons or par­ties for the com­mon des­tiny of all com­mu­ni­ties in Sarawak. Lo said yes­ter­day’s con­fer­ence was to seek the ap­proval of the del­e­gates on the amend­ment of the party’s con­sti­tu­tion to change the party’s name and logo.

“The amend­ment was unan­i­mously passed by del­e­gates and on Mon­day, they will be sub­mit­ting the ap­pli­ca­tion on the amend­ments to the Reg­is­trar of So­ci­eties’ (ROS) of­fice here,” Lo told the me­dia af­ter the con­fer­ence.

UPP pres­i­dent Datuk Seri Wong Soon Koh said the party had not ap­plied to join Gabun­gan Parti Sarawak.

“All I can say is, we will cross the bridge when we get to it,” he added.
