Wong sure PSB to make presence felt all over Sarawak

SIBU: Parti Sarawak Bersatu (PSB) president Dato Sri Wong Soon Koh is confident the party will soon spread its wings throughout the state due to its commitment in fighting for all regardless of race, religion or culture.

“I am confident that in time to come, PSB’s flag will be flying in all areas across Sarawak,” he said when officiating at a rural transformation programme (RTP) at Rumah Doris Ampi in Lubok Pelaie, Pasai on Saturday.

The Bawang Assan assemblyman said the three colours – yellow, black and red – in the party’s flag represented all races in Sarawak, and symbolised PSB’s fight for the people in the state.

“Many are interested in the PSB logo (sun rising and shining over Sarawak), and this ‘sun party’ will bring Sarawak to a brighter future,” he said.

Wong added the party has been receiving good response and support from the public since its rebranding, especially from the Dayak community in rural areas.

In the last few months, the former state minister said PSB has expanded to Sri Aman, Lubok Antu, Selangau, Ngemah, Kanowit, Tamin, Kakus, Pelagus, Kapit, Samalaju and Marudi.

“I am glad that many are interested in joining PSB. Every time we go to a village in a rural area, many are willing to join PSB as members.”

He said being an independent party, PSB is able to focus on achieving its objectives, vision and mission.

“We are free to determine our own future. Therefore, the future of PSB is wide open and bright,” he said.

Earlier, Wong officiated Jalan Rumah Merikan in Lubok Pelaie, which was built with an allocation of RM1 million in 2019 in addition to an RTP allocation of RM1.55 million from 2014 to 2017.

He later inspected repair works on two houses at Rumah Doris.

Among those present were Pemanca James Semilan, Penghulu Richard Ampi, Penghulu Jeffery Sut, Penghulu Evelyn Holly Sebom, PSB Bawang Assan deputy chairman Andrew Shilling and others.
