The Sarawak Workers Party has decided to be a Barisan Nasional-friendly party.
SIBU: The Sarawak Workers Party has decided to be a Barisan Nasional-friendly party and its 30,000 members have been advised to support all BN candidates in the 11th state election, polling for which is on May 7.
Its secretary-general, Munan Laja, said the decision was made after consultation with the party branches statewide.
"SWP will be a BN-friendly party. We will support Chief Minister Tan Sri Adenan Satem and all the BN federal and state leaders too.
"We are a small party and will contribute in our small way to the progress and stability of the state and country," he said in a statement here Friday.
Munan is taking care of the party until its next triennial delegates conference after the abrupt resignation of its president Larry Sng Wei Shien a few days ago.
Sng had made preparations to contest the new Bukit Goram seat but later announced his decision not to.
Munan said party members respected his decision.
On another development, Munan said he would mobilise party members to support Datuk Ambrose Blikau, the BN candidate for the Katibas seat, on nomination day on Monday in Song town.

I have told the Muslims in the seminar that we Muslims in Sarawak should be thankful because other races are willing to support us because we are fair to others and we have been governing this country together well. Therefore I urge the Muslims to continue supporting Adenan as CM.
But what was published in Malaysiakini was different. Words was spinned in such a manner that I was made to be liked a racist. In actual fact I was giving an advice specifically to the Muslims to support Adenan whose acceptance rating was reported to have reached a high 81% from all races. Being Muslims we should be grateful that we are able to blend well with other races. Thus this harmony and tolerance need to be maintained.
In fact I have clarified to Malaysiakini reporter when she asked me questions but she seem to prefer to be deaf. And I told her that only racist see others as racist. As a result what was explained was not published but with a headings that was slant to a racist undertones.
Also, I have never mentioned the name of the late Datuk Stephen Kalong Ningkan. I challenged her to reveal any recording that I have mentioned such name in my entire speech!
