KUCHING: Chief Minister Datuk Patinggi Abang Johari Tun Openg led a Gabungan Parti Sarawak (GPS) delegation to visit newly-appointed Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin at the latter’s residence in Bukit Damansara, Kuala Lumpur yesterday.

Abang Johari greeted and hugged the country’s eighth prime minister upon arrival and, besides congratulating Muhyiddin on his appointment earlier yesterday, also expressed support towards his leadership.

The GPS delegation included deputy chief ministers Datuk Amar Douglas Uggah and Datuk Amar Awang Tengah Ali Hasan, SUPP president Dato Sri Dr Sim Kui Hian and SUPP deputy president Datuk Seri Richard Riot, and PDP president Datuk Seri Tiong King Sing.
