Sarawak Polls: BN not contesting, supports GPS, says Annuar

SIBU: Barisan Nasional will not contest in the 12th Sarawak election, says Tan Sri Annuar Musa.

Speaking to reporters at a meet-the-people session in Tanjung Manis on Saturday, (Nov 27), the former Barisan secretary-general said they were staying away from the election to respect the spirit of cooperation and to support GPS.

"Barisan Nasional is a close friend of GPS so we will not contest or participate in the Sarawak state election," he said, adding that GPS is strongly supported by the people of Sarawak.

Annuar, who is Communications and Multimedia Minister, said that GPS, being part of the Federal Government, is playing an important role in national development.

"There is consensus and cooperation between Barisan and the GPS leadership in Sarawak, so don’t believe the rumours that we are contesting in the election,” he added.

Nomination for the election is on Dec 6 while polling is on Dec 18.
