KUCHING: Is reconciliation, as instructed by the top Barisan Nasional (BN) leadership, the solution to end the bitter internal squabbles in SUPP?
SUPP Sibu chairman Dato Sri Wong Soon Koh, who heads one faction, said it was no longer a practical option, but the party’s secretary-general Professor Dr Sim Kui Hian, from the other camp, said reconciling was “part and parcel of politics” and it should be pursued.
Wong, who is also Second Finance Minister, told The Borneo Post yesterday that as much as his faction wanted to adhere to the BN top leadership instructions to reconcile, they had given up on the idea.
