KENINGAU: Parti Soladiriti Tanah Airku (StarSabah) Bingkor Division received 21 new members who are mostly residents of Apin-Apin on Wednesday and Thursday.

StarSabah Bingkor Chief, Robert Tawik was on hand to receive the forms at the party’s Liaison Office in Bingkor.

The first group to submit the forms on Wednesday were residents of Kampung Kikiran Apin-Apin comprising Patinin @ Salinin Bakawu, Sadiken Majir, Juslibah Micky @ Kulibah and Prisila Sandiken.

Previously, they were hardcore supporters of DAP but they made the decision to join StarSabah and follow the struggles of party’s President who is also Deputy Minister of Tourism Culture, Arts-cum-Keningau Member of Parliament, Datuk Dr Jeffrey Kitingan.

Robert also received membership forms on Thursday from the second group comprising 17 people led by Joseph Billy Karimpot of Kampung Tohan Baru in Apin-Apin.

Robert, who is also the Vice President of StarSabah, said they are joining in the party after realising that leaders of their previous party had abandoned their welfare.

He said their decision to join StarSabah was also of their own will as they saw the struggles of party leaders who are serious in demanding and defending the rights of the people of the state.

“At the same time, they see that Dr Jeffrey Kitingan continues to voice the interests of the people in the state especially the Malaysia Agreement 1963 (MA63) issue,” he said.

Robert, who is also Bingkor Assemblyman, said that in recent years many people from around the state have joined StarSabah, which they consider to be a local party that has the interests of the people and state its priority.

He said many also joined the party because they were frustrated with the state government’s inconsistency in protecting the welfare of the people, especially the distribution of aid that was not comprehensive during the Covid-19 Movement Control Order (MCO) and Conditional Movement Control Order (CMCO).

Robert described the participation of new members in StarSabah in Bingkor and other areas, as enhancing the strength of the party in facing the 15th General Election.

“StarSabah Bingkor division have always welcome the participation of people in this area to the party struggle,” he said.
