PETALING JAYA: Julau MP Larry Sng (pic) has stepped down as Sarawak PKR chief, says the party.
Sng is said to have announced his resignation from the post during a video-conference on Saturday (Feb 27).
State PKR secretary Joshua Jabeng when contacted today confirmed that Sng had tendered his resignation as their chief through a letter.
"It's confirmed. He has made his final decision from a letter to us. The first time, he had said so was in December last year. We all then asked him to stay which he did," said Joshua.
Asked on what were the probable reasons for Sng, 41, to relinquish his position, he believed that it was still due to his original reasons.
"I believe he is still keeping to his original reason that he wanted a Dayak leader to take over the post and lead the party in the Sarawak state election," he said.
Party sources also said that Tebrau MP Stephen Choong has quit the party along with Sng.
On Dec 21 last year, Sng announced that he was stepping down as Sarawak PKR chairman, a post which he took over in May after Selangau MP Baru Bian left the party.
He said this was to enable a Dayak leader to take over the post and lead the party in the Sarawak state election, which is due in June.
However, the “resignation” was never official.
The Star is trying to reach out to Sng over the latest development.
