Parti Rakyat Sarawak

The Parti Rakyat Sarawak or PRS (English: Sarawak Peoples' Party) is a political party in Malaysia. The party was founded in the wake of the de-registration of the Parti Bangsa Dayak Sarawak (PBDS) and later Sarawak National Party (SNAP) in December 2003 by a faction led by Tan Sri Dr. James Jemut Masing and Sng Chee Hua. It is one of the former constituent members of the Barisan Nasional (BN). Following the fall of BN in the 2018 general election and in the aftermath of meeting between all Sarawak-based BN coalition parties on 12 June 2018, PRS leave the coalition to formed a new Sarawak-based coalition of Sarawak Parties Alliance (GPS).[1]
