Speaking to The Borneo Post here yesterday, PRS secretary-general Datuk Wilfred Rata Nissom said: “The delegation seeks the prime minister’s (agreement) on the allocation of seats which will be honoured.”

Nissom disclosed that besides himself, the other members of the delegation were party president Dato Sri Dr James Masing, deputy president Datuk Joseph Entulu Belaun and vice- president Datuk Joseph Salang Gandum.

It is understood that the meeting took place in the prime minister’s office in Putrajaya on Wednesday.

Nissom said with the assurance of the prime minister who is also
the Barisan Nasional chairman, PRS would maintain its nine state seats, namely, Balai Ringin, Bukit Begunan, Batang Ai, Belaga, Baleh, Tamin, Kakus and Pelagus.

When asked how Pelagus incumbent Larry Sng would fit into PRS, Nissom said the issue should not arise as he (Sng) was no longer a member of the party. - Borneo Post

    We Ngemah PRS members are looking for any BN political party to save us from the opposition since we are no more of our top party leaders interest.
    Our Ngemah Division name were not only missing in this blog but also missing in their press report.
    So now our BN seat in Ngemah is open for any interested BN component. Come and save us from PCM/PKR/SNAP......


    We certainly belief that Ngemah seat will be a sacrifice seat for PRS, when PRS lose Ngemah meaning a lose to BN and a lose to BN is a lose to Taib. And that is what DJJM want....why ???? politicking.

    Smart move by DJJM to remove Taib, that the actual reason why DJJM keep on putting Alexander Vincent in Ngemah for PRS of which DJJM knows it does not benefit BN at all.

    Smart move by Masing....CHEERS.....

    Make sure Taib do not know your strategy SIR...
