Julau MP Larry Sng’s appointment as the Malaysian Pepper Board (MPB) Chairman has been terminated as of yesterday.
The lawmaker said he received the letter from the Ministry of Plantation Industries and Commodities, informing him about the decision.”I  just received my letter of termination as Chairman of MPB under this new (Perikatan Nasional) government.

The move was expected and I am happy to say that it was a pleasure working with all members of the board and staff at MPB,” he wrote in his Facebook. 

“I wish everyone at MPB all the very best in these challenging times. Hopefully my replacement will uplift the price of pepper and benefit the growers better than I could.

Nonetheless, I will monitor the development of pepper closely as most of the growers are from my constituency of Julau,” said the newly elected PKR state chief.

Sng  was appointed as the chairman of the pepper board, replacing former Saratok MP Tan Sri William Mawan Ikom in 2018.
