No room for traitors in PRS, says Masing

Parti Rakyat Sarawak president James Masing says sacking of his deputy and four others was to prevent split in party ranks.

KUCHING: Parti Rakyat Sarawak (PRS) will close its doors to any traitors in the party in moving forward, said its president James Masing Jemut.

Referring to the sacking of PRS deputy president Joseph Entulu Belaun and four others on Sunday, Masing said he had to take action as he could not accept the possibility of a split in the party.

“That’s their problem. This is a free country. They can do whatever they want but I cannot accept disunity in the Supreme Council and Barisan Nasional traitors in my party.”

He said this when met at the compound of the Sarawak PBB headquarters here today after Chief Minister Abang Johari Tun Openg announced the Sarawak BN candidates for GE14.

On Sunday, Entulu, vice-president William Nyalau Badak and three Supreme Council members — Nyempah Sabot, Adriana Chumang and Edward Kurik — were sacked for allegedly “disrupting party solidarity”.

Entulu, who is Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department, is the incumbent for the Selangau parliamentary seat while Nyalau is the incumbent for the Lubok Antu parliamentary seat.
