GE15: Sarawak PH open to pacts with non-GPS parties

Estimate Reading Time: < 1 minute

KUCHING: Sarawak Pakatan Harapan (PH) is open to exploring cooperation with any non-Gabungan Parti Sarawak (GPS) party for the 15th General Election (GE15), says its chairman Chong Chieng Jen.


Chong, who is also state DAP chairman, said Pakatan was ready to form any electoral pact to avoid multi-cornered fights, which will only increase the chances of GPS winning.

He said Sarawak Pakatan had also settled seat allocations among its component parties DAP, PKR and Parti Amanah Negara.

“We will keep the status quo (from GE14). All PH parties will contest the same seats they did in the 2018 election. But we are still open to negotiations with non-GPS parties,” he told a press conference here on Friday (Sept 2).


Chong said Sarawak Pakatan component parties were given leeway to conduct their own negotiations with non-GPS parties.

“They are authorised to negotiate, whether to give up or carry on contesting in their allocated seats. They don’t have to come back to PH to discuss,” he said.

Other Sarawak Opposition parties like Parti Sarawak Bersatu (PSB), Parti Aspirasi Rakyat Sarawak (Aspirasi), Parti Bangsa Dayak Sarawak Baru (PBDSB) and Parti Sedar Rakyat Sarawak (Sedar) have also raised similar proposals to work together in GE15.-BERNAMA
