KUCHING (June 23): Pakan assemblyman Tan Sri William Mawan Ikom and Mambong assemblyman Datuk Dr Jerip Susil have been elected as supreme council members of Parti Pesaka Bumiputera Bersatu (PBB).

They were among 14 from PBB’s Pesaka wing elected unopposed to the supreme council during the just concluded PBB Convention (triennial general meeting) at Borneo Convention Centre Kuching (BCCK) last weekend.

Mawan and Dr Jerip contested as PBB candidates for the first time in last year’s state election, and won their respective seats for Gabungan Parti Sarawak (GPS).

Mawan, who reportedly joined PBB in 2016, was previously the president of the then Sarawak Progressive Democratic Party (SPDP) and Parti Tenaga Rakyat Sarawak (Teras).

Dr Jerip was accepted into PBB in 2019, after quitting Parti Sarawak Bersatu (PSB) where he was the deputy president.

Eight of the other 12 supreme council members from the Pesaka wing, which is for Dayak members, are also elected people’s representatives.

They are Lawas MP Dato Henry Sum Agong, Betong MP Datuk Robert Lawson Chuat, Bukit Goram assemblyman Jefferson Jamit Unyat, Telang Usan assemblyman Dennis Ngau, Tebedu assemblyman Dr Simon Sinang Bada, Bukit Semuja assemblyman John Ilus, and Katibas assemblyman Lidam Assan.

Deputy premiers Datuk Amar Douglas Uggah and Datuk Amar Awang Tengah Ali Hasan were also returned unopposed as the party’s deputy presidents.
