Datuk Ewon Benedick
Kota Kinabalu: Penampang Member of Parliament Datuk Ewon Benedick said he is honoured to be part of the Cabinet of the Unity Government under the leadership of Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim.

The newly appointed Entrepreneur Development and Cooperatives Minister said the mandate is crucial for entrepreneurs’ development, a task he is looking forward to pursuing.

He said being one of the two representatives from Sabah, he would also raise matters concerning the state and work with his fellow Cabinet members on the solutions for those issues, especially on Sabah rights.

“I will also take serious attention to the constituencies I represent – Penampang Parliamentary constituency and Kadamaian State constituency – which require much attention for development under the new government. 

“I wish to congratulate fellow Cabinet members and hope to build our nation together,” he said.

Ewon has been the Kadamaian assemblyman since 2018 and was the State Minister of Rural Development until 2020.

In the 15th General Election, Ewon, representing Pakatan Harapan, won the Penampang seat with a majority of 14,410 votes in a four-cornered race, defeating incumbent Datuk Darell Leiking from Parti Warisan.

He graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Computer Science (Software Development) from Universiti Teknikal Malaysia Melaka (2002-2005), and was educated at Kinabalu Ibukota Matriculation College (2001-2002) and Sekolah Menengah Kebangsaan St Michael, Penampang (1999-2000).

He will take over as Upko president from Tuaran MP Wilfred Madius Tangau, at the party’s congress scheduled for Jan 14 to 15 next year.
