Sabah Bersatu offers to contest in Kimanis by-election

KOTA KINABALU (BERNAMA) – Sabah Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (Bersatu) hopes the Pakatan Harapan (PH) central leadership will consider its candidate for the Kimanis by-election.

Sabah Bersatu Secretary Datuk Seri Dr Ronald Kiandee said Kimanis is one of the most active divisions with many outreach programmes conducted since Bersatu set up its base in the state.

“Bersatu is one the biggest PH component parties in Sabah and has second largest number of MPs after Warisan.

“To display Bersatu’s strength in the state, particularly in Kimanis, PH leadership should give the chance to Bersatu to contest in the seat in the upcoming by-election this time around,” he said in a statement yesterday. He said Sabah Bersatu Chief Datuk Seri Hajiji Noor had also conveyed the same request to Prime Minister and party chairman Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, during their recent meeting.

However, Kiandee said Sabah Bersatu would accept any decision made by the central Pakatan leadership. “Whoever is decided as the candidate by the central PH leadership to contest in Kimanis by-election, we will accept and support,” he said.
