DAP-SNAP merger in Sarawak appears to be on the cards

May 24, 2011
KUALA LUMPUR, May 24 — Despite strong opposition from PKR, a DAP-SNAP merger in Sarawak appears to be on the cards.

Sarawak DAP chief Wong Ho Leng told reporters today that the party held discussions last Thursday with SNAP’s merger committee, which was recently formed to study the proposal.

He said that following the discussions, which centred specifically on the mechanics of such a merger, the matter was raised at the DAP’s national leadership at its central executive committee (CEC) meeting yesterday.

“It looks positive,” said Wong 

He declined to reveal the details of the DAP’s meeting with SNAP but reiterated that both parties had discussed how to go about such a merger.

Asked if discussions touched on issues like whether both parties would come together under one name and contest on one party ticket, Wong smiled and drew his fingers across his lips, indicating the expression that his “lips are sealed”.

He admitted later that the question was “spot on”.
