Adenan considers direct BN candidates to solve squabble over Sarawak seats

Sarawak Chief Minister Tan Sri Adenan Satem is seriously considering direct Barisan Nasional (BN) candidates as a solution to the dispute over seats allocation involving two component parties and their splinter parties. "Looking at how things are now, I will consider direct BN candidates for this coming state election," he said after launching a "Training of Trainers" youth seminar organised by Parti Pesaka Bumiputera Bersatu (PBB) in Santubong today. Sarawak United People's Party (SUPP) has so far refused to allow any of its 19 seats to be contested by United People's Party (UPP). Similarly, Sarawak Progressive Democratic Party (SPDP) will not give away any of its eight seats to Parti Tenaga Rakyat Sarawak (Teras). From the 11 new seats created in last year's redelineation exercise, Adenan said he was hopeful they could stick to the 5:2:2:2 formula, under which PBB gets five seats, while PRS, SUPP and SPDP gets two each. – February 14, 2016.
