More SUPP for everyone. Via The Star:
There will be no more talks to end the dispute over the controversial Sarawak United People’s Party (SUPP) Dudong branch in Sibu.
Twenty-seven of the 43 party branches that had formed a “Save SUPP” panel have now turned down a proposed solution from a five-man committee headed by party organising secretary Datuk Peter Chin Fah Kui.
Under the proposal, the rival factions headed by veteran Dudong assemblyman Datuk Dr Soon Choon Teck and Sibu branch chairman Datuk Wong Soon Koh would be allocated half of the posts in the Dudong branch pro tem committee to be set up.
Chin’s panel had also suggested that the election for the branch’s first executive committee be held only after the state polls due in 2011.
The proposed solution was presented to both factions during the second round of talks chaired by Chin at the SUPP headquarters last week.
“The 27 branches have rejected outright the proposed formula.
“The door for more talks is now closed and locked,” said a branch leader who attended Thursday’s meeting to discuss the proposal.
More about BN chicken SUPP and BN component parties meddling with each other affairs. PRS supreme council member said partyless Larry Sng is no longer PRS problem – but that of SUPP!
Sng’s “partyless” status and his retention as an assistant minister in the recent Cabinet reshuffle has become a headache for Sarawak United People’s Party, according to a political ally.
“It is no longer Party Rakyat Sarawak’s problem, but a migraine for SUPP,” said Tedewin Ngumbang, a PRS supreme council member and a confidante of PRS president Dr James Masing.
Sng, who once had a promising future in PRS, was sacked from the party on April 1 last year following his failed move to oust Masing as the president of the party. Since then he has become partyless.
