Voon: Baru’s victory comes as no surprise


Voon Shiak Ni

KUCHING: Baru Bian, who has been re-elected as Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) Sarawak chairman, is a statesman and he will carry out all that he is tasked with for the benefit of the people of Sarawak, said PKR National Women vice-chief Voon Shiak Ni.

She added that it came as no surprise that Baru was re-elected as the Sarawak PKR chairman and he is willing to resort to unpopular approach for the benefits of the people of Sarawak as populist approach is not his way unlike many politicians these days.

“We are all aware that he has the nod of the majority to be the chief because he is a well-known and respected figure in the state not only in his constituency but Sarawakians as a whole,” she said when commenting on the recent re-election of Bian as Sarawak PKR chairman.

“He is firm and sincere about his struggle for Sarawakians and that is the main reason why we put him there again as our captain to steer this ship for Sarawak.”

Yesterday, Baru was announced by PKR Communications chief Fahmi Fadzil on behalf of PKR president Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim as the Sarawak PKR chairman, a post Baru held since 2009.
