KUCHING: The Sarawak National Party (SNAP), which is fighting the Registrar of Societies’ deregistration decision in court, has maintained that there is no change to its position as a Barisan Nasional component party. 

“SNAP has never been evicted nor has it left the Barisan Nasional. So, the question of it being readmitted into the coalition does not arise at all,” said its new president Edwin Dundang. 

He was asked to comment on Barisan secretary-general Tan Sri Mohamed Rahmat’s recent statement on SNAP’s status. 

Mohamed was quoted by Bernama as saying that SNAP had to fight its deregistration issue in court before it could be considered for readmission into the coalition. 

Dundang said the party had written twice to Mohamed to clarify if he had made the statement as reported in the newspapers but had yet to receive any reply. 

The ROS revoked SNAP’s registration last November due to its failure to resolve a leadership crisis. However, the Court of Appeal allowed the party to apply for an order to quash that decision. 

The hearing for the application is scheduled for next month.  

Dundang said the party had a panel of lawyers to handle the court case.
