Daud ready for another term as PBB vice-president


KUCHING: PBB vice president Datuk Daud Abdul Rahman is prepared for a contest

for the vice president posts during the party’s triennial delegates’ conference in October this year.

The backbone of the state Barisan Nasional (BN) has five elected vice presidents – three from the Bumiputera wing and two from Pesaka.

“If they (new faces) want to contest for the vice president posts, they can do so. Ultimately, the party delegates are the ones who will decide who gets elected,” he said when met at his Hari Raya Open House here yesterday.

Daud, who has been a PBB vice president for six years, said he looked forward to getting strong support during the TDC.

“If there is good support at the grassroots, I will defend my current post. It is more important for me to find out whether they still want me in that post,” said Daud, who is also Assistant Minister in the Chief Minister’s Department (Islamic Affairs).

PBB is led by Pehin Sri Abdul Taib Mahmud, who is also the chief minister.
