Sabah PKR chief Datuk Christina Liew has expressed surprise over Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia’s (Bersatu) announcement that it will set up a branch in Sabah.

On Saturday, Bersatu chairman Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad made the surprise announcement of Bersatu’s entry into Sabah, explaining that the party wishes to enhance ties with those in the state who have left Umno, but are reluctant to join Pakatan Harapan’s allies in Sabah.


KOTA KINABALU: Sabah PKR chief Datuk Christina Liew has expressed surprise over Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia’s (Bersatu) announcement that it will set up a branch in Sabah.

Liew, who is also Deputy Chief Minister, said that there was an agreement that Bersatu would give way to Parti Warisan Sabah, DAP and PKR to administer the state government.

“I was caught by surprise, as (Bersatu did not enter Sabah for the 14th general election). Then, it was just Warisan, with PKR and DAP. (But) now, they want to come here.


“I am equally surprised that many ex-Umno leaders (in Sabah are joining) Bersatu,” she said after the World Pangolin Day gala dinner here, yesterday.

Liew said that the state government has been doing well under Warisan president Datuk Seri Mohd Shafie Apdal, who is also Chief Minister.

“We are heading towards financial development and prosperity, but suddenly, you’re telling (us) that the state is not doing well, and that you have to come here to assist in strengthening Sabah?” she said.

Yesterday, Warisan deputy president Datuk Darell Leiking said that Mohd Shafie will comment today on Bersatu’s reneging on its promise not to enter Sabah.

On Saturday, Bersatu chairman Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad made the surprise announcement of Bersatu’s entry into Sabah, explaining that the party wishes to enhance ties with those in the state who have left Umno, but are reluctant to join Pakatan Harapan’s allies in Sabah.

Meanwhile, former Sabah Umno chief Datuk Hajiji Mohd Noor said that 100,000 ex-Umno members, including elected representatives, have submitted applications to become Bersatu members.
