The arrest of these APRC supporters together with UDP supporters stemmed from a clash between supporters of both parties on Friday while the APRC supporters were celebrating their victory at the polls at Foni Bintang Constituency.
Meanwhile both the Minister of regional government and the Minister of the Interior convened a ‘peace and stability’ meeting in Sibanor to promote reconciliation and the re-establishment of the fraternal and family ties amongst the people of the Constituency “so that they see themselves as one people with a common destiny and that politics should not be a source of division for the community.” The response of community leaders was positive.
