MIRI: Sarawak Parti Keadilan Rakyat is undergoing a process of "leadership cleansing" at the grassroots level, says state PKR information chief Abun Sui.

The on-going resignation en-masse of leaders and members from numerous branches now in the state is part of this process, he told The Star on Monday (May 18).

"This is happening in Kuching, Mas Gading, Stampin, Petra Jaya, Kanowit, Lanang, Lubok Antu and Bintulu.

"This is expected as they are no longer in tune with the party leadership at the state and federal levels.

"The number of those who had left and are leaving is not damaging to Sarawak PKR.

"In fact, it will make Sarawak PKR stronger as we will have new blood to replace them in order to bring the party forward as we prepare for the coming state elections," he said.

Sui said state PKR chairman Larry Sng had already recently warned that there will be those who will leave the party as they no longer can work with the party central leaders.

Over the past few days, groups of PKR branch leaders and members statewide have announced that they have left PKR.

Many of them said the current state and federal PKR leaders do not subscribe to the party's original principles of struggling for the transformation of the rakyat.

They claimed the party is too focused on wanting Anwar to become prime minister.

Sui on Monday said Sarawak PKR wants Anwar to be the next PM as this will be the launching pad for bringing positive transformation to the state and country.
