Baru Bian may join PSB, says former PKR man’s ally

Former Sarawak PKR chief Baru Bian is speculated to be joining PSB.

KUCHING: Former Sarawak PKR chief Baru Bian and his supporters may join Parti Sarawak Bersatu, according to a PKR branch leader.

However, an announcement had yet to be made in regard to the matter, said Stampin PKR secretary Desmond Kho.

Kho was aligned to Baru before the latter quit the party during the country’s political crisis in February. He told FMT that it appeared that PKR was undergoing a transition period and had departed from the agenda of justice for all.

The party now appeared to be “in full pursuit of one man’s agenda to be the prime minister”, he said, making a veiled reference to PKR president Anwar Ibrahim.

Kho said PKR’s aspirations had been to bring about “reformasi” through justice and equality. Those who felt that the party no longer serves their original aspirations would be free to pursue their ideals on a different platform, he said.

It was reported last Thursday that PSB president Wong Soon Koh said he welcomed Baru and his supporters to join his party.

Wong dismissed a report that Baru was induced by money to join PSB.

PSB is a local independent party with no affiliation to any political party in Sarawak.
