Parti Rakyat Sarawak leadership crisis is nearing the end and so is Larry Sng's time. James Masing after being declared as the legitimate president of PRS by ROS is gaining support from their party member and is in no hurry to decide on the fate of Larry Sng whether Larry should be retain in the party or expelled.
Larry Sng faction, meanwhile is still contesting whether the ROS letter is legal to state that Masing is still the president.
The only way for Larry Sng to continue his political career in PRS is for Taib Mahmud to promote him to a full ministership in the coming Sarawak state cabinet reshuffling exercise. And should Larry Sng be relinquished of his assistant ministership, Masing would definitely kill him off. Otherwise, PRS members will consider Larry and his supreme council members as an excess baggage in the party.

Masing in no hurry to decide on Sng
By James Ling
KAPIT: Parti Rakyat Sarawak (PRS) president Dato Sri Dr James Masing said Friday night that he would not make any hasty decision on the status of Assistant Minister in the Chief Minister’s Department Larry Sng’s re-admission into PRS.
“I cannot make a decision now. I still have to wait for a while. Let the dust settle down first and let the people think rationally rather than with emotion.
“It is better to make the decision when everything has settled down,” said Masing, who is Land Development Minister when asked to comment on Sng’s status in PRS.
He had earlier attended a gathering hosted by the police in connection with the recent 201st Police Day celebration at the multi-purpose hall here.
The PRS president said he had plenty of time (to make the decision).
“What is important is that ROS has made a decision and we have to respect that decision. What I’m going to do now is to bring the party to move forward and do what a political party should do,” he said.
Masing had earlier, after being declared the legitimate president of PRS, decided to seek the opinion of the grassroots on whether or not to re-admit Sng into the party after he and nine others had been expelled from the party.
To date, Masing has received the support of 25 of the 28 branches/divisions state-wide which had rejected the re-admission of Sng into the party.
On Friday afternoon, PRS Baleh, PRS Pelagus (aligned to Masing) and PRS Katibas branches/divisions joined 22 other PRS divisions to adopt a motion opposing Sng’s admission into the party.
At a joint meeting of the three branches/divisions (PRS Baleh, Pelagus and Katibas) at its headquarters along Jalan Penghulu Nyanggau here on Friday, Hulu Rejang member of parliament Billy Abit Joo said PRS Belaga branch/division was expected to convene a meeting tentatively on Apr 21 for a similar purpose.
