Former PRS/BN YB Mr Larry Sng is now the undisputed president of the Sarawak Workers Party (SWP).
SWP, the party that was purportedly set up by his father, Datuk Sng Chee Hua also elected his father’s half-brother, the State Assemblyman for Pelagus, YB George Lagong as Deputy President.
So Larry, who’s 33 this year, is now president and his half-uncle is deputy president and they will be assisted by their senior vice-presidents; Ms Josephine Mawat and Mr William Gani Bina (welcome to non-teachers related politics, sir!), who are not related by blood, as far as I know.
Just in time for the 13th General Elections, don’t you agree?
This has got to be the News of the Day for today.
Tomorrow’s news of course will be PRS’ reply!
Watch this space….
How BERNAMA reported it:
Larry Sng Wei Shien Is Now Sarawak Workers Party President
SIBU, May 28 (Bernama) — Former assistant minister Larry Sng Wei Shien was today elected Sarawak Wokers’ Party (SWP) president at its inaugral annual general meeting here.
SWP is the latest local based opposition party in the state.
Its prime mover is Larry’s father, Datuk Sng Chee Hua, who is former deputy president of the Parti Rakyat Sarawak (PRS) and former Pelagus state assemblyman and Julau member of parliament.
Pelagus state assemblyman George Lagong, who won as an independent in the last state election, and who recently joined the party, was also elected the party’s deputy president.
Its two senior vice-presidents are Josephine Randan Mawat, and William Gani Bina who is also Sarawak Teacher’s Union president. The party has two other vice-presidents and 14 supreme council members who include part-time lecturer Ellison Ludan and former senior police officer Jonathan Jalin who are tipped to be its candidates for Kanowit and Lubok Antu, respectively, against PRS’ Datuk Aaron Dagang and William Nyalau.
