KUCHING: Former Parti Bansa Dayak Sarawak (PBDS) information chief Datuk Dr James Masing and his supporters will apply to join Parti Rakyat Sarawak (PRS). 

“PRS is one of the good options for us. We will discuss with its promoters and once they accept us, we will apply to join Barisan Nasional,” Dr Masing said. 

Dr Masing, also state Land Development Minister, said all 14 PBDS elected representatives, including those aligned to Datuk Daniel Tajem, should join PRS so that they had a political vehicle to continue serving the people and the nation. 

Likening PBDS' 16-month long crisis to a seriously ill person, Dr Masing said he was sad but relieved with the party's deregistration. 

“Of course you feel sad watching a family member suffering a long illness. But it is a relief when he dies and is not suffering anymore.” 

Tajem, who declined to comment on the party's deregistration, said: 

“I want to find out first on what ground the party was deregistered.”
