He said its central working committee (CWC) had discussed the draft MoU at length before deciding to present it to the BN supreme council for further deliberation and endorsement.

When asked to share the gist of the draft MoU, Dr Sim, who is also the local government and housing minister, said that UPP members must rejoin SUPP in the interest of the Chinese community.

“You know my position very well,” he said, referring to his repeated calls for UPP members, led by its president Datuk Seri Wong Soon Koh, to return to the fold.

Wong, who is also the state international trade and e-commerce minister, and his supporters left SUPP in 2014 to form UPP.

Apart from Dr Sim, Chief Minister Datuk Patinggi Abang Johari Openg had also publicly asked UPP members to return to their original party.

On SUPP’s preparations for GE14, Dr Sim said that the party’s CWC has directed potential candidates to work harder and meet the people on the ground.

He added that potential candidates who are found to be lacking would not be allowed to stand.

Dr Sim said that SUPP will contest in its seven traditional seats in GE14.

  1. Only the opportunists will support both SUPP and UPP hoping to share some scrumbs in the form of doing business with SUPP and UPP YBs. Both SUPP and UPP are lap dogs of Najib and Hamidi.

  2. Whether UPP candidates contest under SUPP logo or BN logo make no difference when they need not resign from UPP and join SUPP . The MOU was conceived to deceive the Chinese community and members from both factions that both SUPP and UPP are finally one again. Chinese call such deceptive arrangement Lan Pa Pa Lan ( LPPL ). If the leaders from both SUPP and UPP cannot be more honest with their own members could they be sincere with Sarawak voters? The CM has made SUPP and UPP look foolish with this LPPL proposal.

    • The mother of all bullshit political MOUs. No need to resign from UPP but need SUPP to officially nominate the UPP candidates to contest under Umno Baru controlled BN? Fuk these thieves and scumbags.

  3. All the boastful talks by SUPP now comes to nothing. What is this MOU ? Now contest under SUPP but after election what’s gonna happen ? Go different ways again ? Voters have the right to know. You think you people can continue to full the Chinese forever.

  4. So UPP potential or nominated candidates will now contest under SUPP tickets? Will they renounce their membership with UPP and officially apply to be SUPP members? Let’s see what shall unfold before and after GE14.
