KUCHING: Snap today announced that it was willing to join a cabinet headed by PKR’s Baru Bian as chief minister if the opposition managed to kick out Barisan Nasional tomorrow.
“The notion that Baru Bian is to be the chief minister has been agreed upon by Pakatan Rakyat Sarawak. This is because Snap is a member of Pakatan Rakyat Sarawak,” said its secretary-general, Edmund Stanley Jugol in a statement issued here today.
He assured that Snap strongly subscribed to the struggle of Pakatan Rakyat Sarawak.
“In the event that PKR wins very few seats, and Snap captures more seats within the opposition front, Snap will offer DAP, PAS and PKR to jointly govern Sarawak,” he said.
However, he lamented that PKR was spoiling the chances of Pakatan by contesting in too many seats and causing a split in the opposition votes.
“Snap only fielded candidates in 26 areas. But PKR fielded 49 candidates which reduce the chances of Pakatan Rakyat Sarawak to win in the majority of the seats they contest,” he noted.
Snap had previously come under fire from opposition groups over allegations that it was insincere and would switch sides after the election.
