MIRI: Parti Bumi Kenyalang (PBK) is annoyed with the lack of warning signs to alert road users regarding the undergoing sewerage construction works along Jalan Bulan Sabit Merah. According to PBK member Leslie Ting, the road is a very busy one.
I have 2 questions 1. Did PBK President Voon Lee Shan RESIGN from DAP before he was elected as PBK President ? Tun M RESIGN from UMNO before he formed Bersatu. Is this not standard protocol ? If one worked for Esso and then later work for Shell as CEO, does he/she needs to RESIGN his former position then accept the new post ? 2. Out of 27 members of PBK's Central Committee members, 22 are Chinese. Only 5 are non- Chinese. So is the 5 none Chinese members Sarawak Bumi Natives ? Why is PBK call Parti Bumi Kenyalang but its Central committee members are over 80% Chinese ?
Referendum is one of the legitimate procedures to exit under international law but to go for a referendum may not for political and legal reasons be suitable to Sabah and Sarawak. There are many countries in the world that got their independence by way of referendum. The fact they were held instead of seeking Unilateral Declaration of Independence depends on many legal and political considerations.

KUCHING: Parti Bumi Kenyalang (PBK) president Voon Lee Shan said he believed his mobile and office phone might have been “bugged” after police officers showed up for his press conference. “I am concern about how the police know that I will be holding a press conference at my office because I have only contacted media members to come,” he told reporters prior to a press conference at his office today.
If a political party, such as Parti Bumi Kenyalang, upfront declared that they are through constitution and international laws going for independence by peaceful means is it still need Sarawak people to show through Independence Referendum whether they want to remain in Malaysia if Parti Bumi Kenyalang managed to get Sarawak people majority support and become ruling political party in Sarawak after next Sarawak election? The answer is obvious.
