Warisan ready for contests among family members
Published on: Tuesday, March 13, 2018

Penampang: Pledging to restore Sabah on the right path, Parti Warisan Sabah says it is prepared for the likelihood of pitting families in face-offs in the coming general election.

Its President Datuk Seri Mohd Shafie Apdal said there is no alternative but to fight his brother and cousin in Barisan Nasional (BN).

"I would love to have them on my side but they make their own choice," he told a crowd in Kg Kituau, Penampang on Saturday night.

Other possible face-offs between family members involve the Kitingans.

Tan Sri Joseph Pairin Kitingan is highly anticipated to defend his Keningau parliamentary constituency and state seat of Tambunan.

Pairin's brother, Crispin, is an active member of Warisan and often invited to speak for the party, while their brother-in-law, Justin Alip, is the chief coordinator of Warisan in Tambunan.

"Let's look at the bigger picture, which is to put Sabah back on the right path, to ensure that the future generations do not suffer. "We are in politics not to help our brothers but to help the rakyat.

We love our brothers but they are in BN," said Shafie.

The coming elections will again witness several parties contesting in Sabah, but Shafie said what is more important is for the people to realise that the power lies in their hands.

"Warisan is a party for all Sabahans. When we come together as one, as anak Sabah, we can forge the way forward to become a force to be reckoned with in Malaysia," he added.

At the event, Shafie received 1,318 applications from members of BN component parties in Penampang to join Warisan.
