DAP to Sarawak: We are sorry for any hurtful remarks


KUALA LUMPUR:
DAP secretary-general Anthony Loke has apologised to the people and government of Sarawak for past hurtful remarks.

In his Facebook statement, it is said that he was meeting Gabungan Parti Sarawak (GPS) chairman Tan Sri Abang Johari Openg and Sarawak United People’s Party (SUPP) president Datuk Seri Dr Sim Kui Hian in Kuching today.

“I have informed the premier that if there is any statement ever made by any DAP leader that offends the government and the people of Sarawak, I, representing DAP, make a public apology.

“I hope today’s meeting will open a new chapter towards building greater understanding and cooperation for the nation’s sake,” said Loke.

The meeting comes ahead of the Malay Rulers special meeting in Kuala Lumpur.

It is understood that the King will be seeking the opinions of the Rulers on the impasse in the formation of a federal government.

The meeting began at 10.30am and it is expected to last at least three hours.
