KUCHING, Sept 13 (Bernama) — Five Sarawak Progressive Democratic Party (SPDP) Supreme Council members will face a disciplinary action for allegedly failing to adhere to party’s rules.

They are senior vice-president Datuk Peter Nansian who is also Tasik Biru assemblyman, Marudi assemblyman Sylvester Entri Muran, Bekenu assemblyman Rosey Yunus, Danau assemblyman Paulus Palu Gumbang and Member of Parliament for Mas
Gading Datuk Dr Tiki Lafe.

“Other Supreme Council members and I have been patience enough for the past two years and it is up to the disciplinary committee to determine the punishment for them,” SPDP president Datuk Seri William Mawan Ikom told reporters after chairing the party’s supreme council meeting here today.

Mawan, who is also State Minister of Social Development and Urbanisation, said he was awaiting a report from the disciplinary committee chaired by Prof Dr Shafiq Abdullah before pursuing the matter with the state and central Barisan Nasional (BN) leaders.

On SPDP’s preparations for the next general election, Mawan said three incumbents, namely MP for Baram Datuk Jacob Dungau Sangan (Deputy International Trade and Industry Minister), MP for Saratok Jelaing Mersat (Deputy Transport Minister) and MP for Bintulu Datuk Seri Tiong King Sing would defend their seats.

On Mas Gading parliamentary seat, Mawan said Tiki had yet to inform him whether he wanted to defend the seat. — BERNAMA
