PBRS hoping to tackle current issues

KOTA KINABALU: Parti Bersatu Rakyat Sabah (PBRS) leaders are hoping their party will be more responsive to current issues with the setting up of an executive committee. 

A provision to enable this panel to be set up would be among various amendments to the party’s constitution that are expected to be adopted by PBRS delegates at their 10th congress in the interior Keningau district today. 

Some 800 PBRS delegates and observers would be attending the one-day congress to be opened by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Dr Mahathir Mohamad at the Keningau community centre. 

PBRS president Tan Sri Joseph Kurup said the planned executive committee, which he was expected to lead, would comprise 12 members, including representatives from the party’s Youth and Wanita wings. 

“Our Supreme Council meets only once every three months. So with the executive committee, we would be able to address issues affecting the party as and when they arise,” Kurup said yesterday. 

He said apart from the president’s keynote address, PBRS delegates would also be debating about how they could further participate in the state’s manufacturing, tourism and agriculture sectors. 

Kurup said in Keningau, PBRS members, who are mainly from the Kadazandusun and Murut indigenous communities, would give Dr Mahathir a rousing traditional welcome. 

After launching the PBRS congress, Dr Mahathir would be heading to Kota Kinabalu for the ground-breaking ceremony of the Sabah Umno building before returning to Kuala Lumpur.
