KUCHING: Batu Lintang assemblyman See Chee How (pic) has resigned from the Sarawak Legislative Assembly's consultative committee in protest over the state government's handling of negotiations with Petronas to settle the state's sales tax owed by the national oil corporation. See is from Parti Sarawak Bersatu, which is not part of Gabungan Parti Sarawak, the coalition ruling the Sarawak state government. "Until today, members of the negotiating team, including myself, have yet to meet them. "It would be an affront to my public office as a member of the state legislative assembly and the consultative committee," he said. It will not take another 45 years for the state legislative assembly and Sarawakians to be enraged by any unauthorised, illegitimate and improper conduct of executive power.
