KUCHING: Sarawak PKR is in no rush to pick a new leader following the resignation of state chairman Larry Sng last weekend.
State PKR secretary Joshua Jabeng (pic) said the party would go ahead with "collective leadership" among its state leadership council members.
"There is no urgency to get a replacement. We still have our deputy chairman and vice-chairmen to carry on," he said on Tuesday (March 2) when contacted.
According to Joshua, PKR president Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim was satisfied with the arrangement until a time when a new chairman becomes necessary.
"We will cross the bridge when we get to it," he added.
Julau MP Sng, together with Tebrau MP Steven Choong, quit PKR to back Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin and the Perikatan Nasional government.
They handed over statutory declarations supporting Perikatan to Muhyiddin on Sunday (Feb 28).
Sng had joined PKR shortly after winning in Julau as an independent in the 2018 general election.
He was appointed state chairman in March last year after former chairman Baru Bian quit the party.
