PARTI Sarawak Bersatu (PSB) president Datuk Seri Wong Soon Koh was told to not stoop so low when carrying out his politics.

Parti Pesaka Bumiputera Bersatu (PBB) Supreme Council Member Datuk Seri Wan Junaidi Tuanku Jaafar said the Bawang Assan assemblyman reflected his nature, character and trait when he dragged Chief Minister Datuk Patinggi Abang Johari Tun Openg’s name through the mud.

“To Datuk Seri Wong Soon Koh, please do not discredit yourself and do not stoop so low. Remember that in human endeavour, even in war, a ‘free fight’ has its limit and rules of engagement.

“Politics is seeking mandate from the rakyat and you aspire to be on the top and not wallow in the mud and crawl in the gutter,” he said in a statement reported by the New Sarawak Tribune.

He was commenting on the PSB chief’s response to Abang Johari, who recently chided PSB, describing it as a party plagued by problematic members.

The Santubong MP asked whether PSB would trust such leader to lead the party when everything that was said, shared and divulged may one day be the common knowledge and be published into the public domain when relationships soured.

“To the people of Sarawak, are we going to give the mandate to the man who has no sense of honour, ethics and limit in his attempt to discredit opponents, even spinning the support that were given to him at the time when he needed that it most,” he said.

Wan Junaidi said that personal and confidential matters need to be protected and be kept to ourselves.

“Remember that there are limitless amount of state secrets and confidential information accessible to the top leader of the state or Chief Minister that have, in no small way, connected to the national and state interest.

“The secret and confidential information which link to the state and national security, survival or just state and national credibility, that may come to the top leader’s hand and eyes.

“Are we going to trust such a man to get access to such information and confidential matters who may release to local and foreigners alike? To me, God forbid, a big no,” he said.
