Truth : Sarawak MPs Did NOT Fight To Protest GPS Joining PN!
That is yet another example of FAKE NEWS circulating on WhatsApp and social media, and here are the reasons why…
Fact #1 : Videos Were Of Altercation In Indonesia, Not Malaysia
The two viral videos are genuine, and occurred today – 22 November 2022. However, the videos were not recorded in Sarawak, Malaysia; but in Solo, Indonesia.
To be specific, the videos were recorded at the Musyawarah Nasional Himpunan Pengusaha Muda Indonesia (Munas HIPMI) which was held at Hotel Alila, in Solo, Indonesia.
According to CNBC Indonesia, several participants of the National Conference of Young Indonesian Entrepreneurs fought after a disagreement on who should chair the conference.
Fact #2 : GPS Will Leave It To The Agong To Decide
Many Sarawak Members of Parliament have made it known that they do not want to work together with Perikatan Nasional, because of its PAS component party.
However, they did not need to physically “fight” anyone to get their point across, because earlier today (22 November 2022), GPS had already issued a public statement (with our English translation):
In other words – there is NO NEED for anyone in GPS to fight over joining Perikatan Nasional. They have already announced that they are leaving it to the YDP Agong to decide for them.
