Preference for Sakmud cos Federal Minister: Liew

Kota Kinabalu: Sabah Pakatan Harapan Chief Datuk Christina Liew said she was among 15 Sabah PKR division chiefs who signed statutory declarations demanding Sabah PKR Chairman Datuk Dr Sangkar Rasam to step down.

She said the majority faction’s support was for Sepanggar MP Datuk Mustapha Sakmud seeing that he is a Federal Deputy Minister (Higher Education).

“However, PKR (Sabah) will not break but continue working as a team regardless of whoever is named Chairman after Prime Minister and PKR President Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim’s visit here this Saturday (20 April).

“We are all looking forward to Anwar’s visit and open house event and his advice on the current situation,” she said at the State Government’s 2024 Hari Raya open house at Sabah International Convention Centre on Sunday.

Christina said she would not be contending for the post as she has been with the party for two decades now.

“I think it’s time PKR gets its succession plan right but I will like to continue supporting and helping.

“People come in and out but I remain with the party,” she said. 

In March, PKR Kota Marudu division Chief Sazalye Donol announced the break in support leading to conflicting statements from its youth wings and Sangkar himself.

Meanwhile, she said Malaysia, Sabah especially, under the leadership of Anwar and Sabah Chief Minister Datuk Seri Hajiji Noor is shaping a more tolerant and respectful government.

“The State Government is sponsoring major holidays. This is a very good sign which shows that Hajiji is open minded and tolerant towards the people of Sabah and Malaysia as a whole.

“I hope the people of Sabah continue to support this government and let him do the best for us,” she said.
