Mawan questions G5's political posturing

KUCHING: It is illogical for the five elected representatives who were sacked from SPDP recently to claim support for BN while at the same time planning to nominate their own candidate for Mas Gading in the coming 13th general election.

SPDP president Tan Sri William Mawan Ikom said the political posturing of the five, whose moniker was SPDP 5 before changing it to G5, made no sense at all.

“How can you be supporting BN and at the same time claiming you have the right to nominate your own winnable candidate?

“What right do they have to do so? They are not a political party. It makes no sense,” he said when asked to comment on the G5’s pledge to support BN in Mas Gading and their plan to recommend Mas Gading MP Datuk Dr Tiki Lafe to defend the seat.

The G5 members are Dr Tiki, assemblymen Datuk Peter Nansian (Tasik Biru), Paulus Gumbang (Batu Danau), Rosey Yunus (Bekenu) and Datuk Sylvester Entri Muran (Marudi).

Mawan, who is also Minister of Social Development, said there was no basis for what the G5 was planning to do.

“If you are still with BN, you support BN. That is fair. Full stop.

“Don’t come up with contradicting and illogical statements, and stop all the politicking,” he said after briefing reporters on his plans for the Sarawak Dayak National Union (SDNU).
