SIBU: Parti Sarawak Bersatu (PSB) is an independent party with no affiliation to any coalition.

PSB president Dato Sri Wong Soon Koh said the party is local-based from Sarawak at the leader-meet-the-people session at Rumah Lillian Linus, Bungan Kecil, yesterday.

“I want to stress that PSB is an independent party and has no relation or affiliation with any party from Peninsular Malaysia,” he said, refuting rumours that Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad is behind PSB.

“We will strive to serve all Sarawakians irrespective of race, religion and culture,” he said.

On Bungan, Sungai Pinang dan Sungai Banyok areas, Wong said he has drawn many allocations from the state government to develop the area with roads, electricity, repairs of houses and so on.

He assured that if given the opportunity to become the elected people representative again, he would give priority to solve problems such as road and water issues

“If I contest as Bawang Assan candidate again, I hope all voters will give full support to me. I promise to work hard for all folk in Bawang Assan state constituency,” he pledged.

Earlier, Wong also officiated at a road project in Rumah Sylvester Maling, Sungai Pinang. Among those present were Penghulu William Kanyan, Penghulu Jeffery Sut, Penghulu Richard Ampi, PSB Unit Bumiputera Bawang Assan chairman Andrew Shilling and others.
