Sarawak Bersatu to support sanctions against errant members who joined state polls
Sarawak Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (Bersatu) chairman Senator Jaziri Alkaf Abdillah Suffian has said that the party would comply by any action taken against its four members who are participating in the 12th state election against the intentions of the party.
According to him, the party’s constitution explicitly stipulates that stern disciplinary action, which may include having their membership cancelled immediately, would be taken against them.
According to a statement released today, “Any member who runs in the state election without the party’s approval, including incumbent Datuk Ali Biju, would be subject to disciplinary action in accordance with the party’s constitution. The central leadership will announce the decision shortly.”
Jaziri stated that Bersatu Sarawak “remains steadfast and unwavering in its support for the leadership of the Chief Minister and chairman of the GPS Tan Sri Abang Johari Abang Open to ensure a landslide victory in the state election” in order to “continue the rapid development implemented in Sarawak.”
Ali, who also serves as a federal deputy minister, said on Monday that he had opted to defend the Krian seat after taking into consideration the demands of grassroots activists.
