We’re not biased, says MoCS

KOTA KINABALU: ‘Non partisan’ Movement for Change Sarawak (MoCS) has denied that it is only endorsing opposition candidates for the forthcoming state elections.
According to MoCS chairman Francis Siah, their vetting committee had received several names of Barisan Nasional candidates who are currently being screened.

“In line with our non-partisan stand, MoCS will be endorsing some BN candidates. I’ve received some names of BN people who are reasonably good and performing reps. Our vetting committee has checked and discussed the names thoroughly.

“We will be announcing the names of these candidates on Tuesday (March 8) at a press conference,” he said.

He however added that there were no candidates from Sarawak United Peoples Party (SUPP) on the list.

“Not surprisingly, no SUPP candidate’s name came in. But I have a personal choice of a SUPP candidate and will announce the name on Tuesday. This will be a surprise (for many),” he said.
Siah hinted however that he did not think SUPP will accept MoCS’s endorsed name outright.

He also said the MoCS would also announce the endorsement of five more Pakatan Rakyat candidates on that day.

Siah also said that with the impending state election, which must be held by July 24 this year, MoCS is now facilitating political talks, campaigning and registering voters with the aim of helping the opposition Pakatan Rakyat coalition in the state.

The Pakatan coalition in Sarawak comprised of PKR, DAP, PAS and Sarawak National party (SNAP).

SNAP however has also formed an alliance with the United Borneo Front, an NGO group headed by maverick Sabah politician Jeffrey Kitingan who is pushing the Borneo Agenda.

The Borneo Agenda is a common platform calling for, among others, the federal government to honour the terms of the 1963 Malaysia Agreement.

On another issue, Siah said he would lodge a police report against Sarawak Chief Minister Taib Mahmud, in Kuching on  March 13.

This time the report focus on Taib’s alleged money laundering activities and crimes of corruption, he said.

Last week Siah submitted a complain against Taib with the Malaysian Anti Corruption Commission.
