Parti Pesaka Bumiputra Bersatu (PBB)
Also known as the United Sarawak Native Inheritance Party in English term. Established on April 30, 1973. The PBB was formed from the combination of three parties in Sarawak namely Parti Negara Sarawak (PANAS), Barisan Rakyat Jati Sarawak (BARJASA) and Parti Pesaka Anak Sarawak (PESAKA). BARJASA and PANAS merged to form Parti Bumiputera in March 1968 and was the main representative of Muslim Sarawakians. On April 30, 1973, Parti Bumiputera again merged with PESAKA to form PBB. PBB joined the Barisan Nasional (BN) when the BN coalition party was formed in 1974. PBB is the largest political party in Sarawak with strong support from the rural areas. PBB's membership is confined to ethnic Sarawak Bumiputera. The PBB official website features Women and Youth Wing, president's biodata, Members of Parliament (MPs) and State Assemblymen (ADUN), PBB Supreme Council, news archives and PBB links.
