KUCHING: Limbang assemblyman Richard Wong Shoon Fook, the last elected representative from the deregistered Sarawak National Party (SNAP) to join the Sarawak Progressive Democratic Party (SPDP), has been appointed a vice-president. 

Wong, the son of the last SNAP president Datuk Amar James Wong Kim Min, became an SPDP member to remain in the Barisan Nasional. 

The election of leaders at the party’s inaugural general assembly here yesterday sprang no surprises as most of the key posts were not contested but allocated based on consensus. 

State Environment and Public Health Minister Datuk William Mawan Ikom was elected the president while state Assistant Tourism Minister Peter Nyarok Entrie, the deputy president. 

The two senior vice-presidents are Tasik Biru assemblyman Peter Nansian Nguise and Baram MP Jacob Dungau Sagan. 

Elected vice-presidents are Deputy National Unity and Social Development Minister Dr Tiki Lafe, Dr Roland Dom Matu and Jelain Mersat, a political secretary to the Chief Minister. 

Assistant Minister for Infrastructure Development and Communications Dr Judson Sakai Tagal was appointed the secretary-general and Bintulu MP Datuk Seri Tiong King Sing treasurer-general.  

Meluan assemblyman Wong Judat, an independent before his admission into the party, got a supreme council seat.
