#prnsarawak The Sarawak Chief Minister has announced 5 more candidates who will be using the Barisan Nasional symbol this coming election, two of whom are direct candidates.

Sarawak Social Development Minister, who is also Teras President, Tan Sri William Mawan Ikom will defend his Pakan seat, while Pelawan UPP Branch Chairman Datuk Janet Lau will contest in Pelawan.

Three other candidates from SPDP are Kilat Briak for Krian, Rolland Duat for Meluan and Willie Liau for Ba'Kelalan seat.

As Tan Sri William and Datuk Janet will contest under the Barisan banner, they would have to resign from their respective parties, a technical and legal requirement for them to comply to contest under the Barisan symbol.

Tan Sri William said he will submit his resignation letter to the Teras secretary-general soon.
