Foreigners celebrating Warisan's victory, a grim future for Sabah
KOTA KINABALU - Parti Solidariti Tanah Airku (STAR) president Jeffrey Kitingan claims his decision to side with Sabah Barisan Nasional (BN) instead of Parti Warisan Sabah was made after he saw foreigners celebrating Warisan’s victory.
Speaking in an interview with his party’s media team on Facebook today, Jeffrey said the sight of foreigners marching and demonstrating in the heart of the state capital at the conclusion of the May 9 election gave him “a glimpse of the future of Sabah” if he chose Warisan.
“I think about Sabah’s rights and I believe with this side (BN), I can persuade them to join me in my fight for the cause,” he said.
Jeffrey said he also gave Sabah BN chairman Musa Aman his terms and conditions to forge an alliance, namely to eject Umno from Sabah and restructure Sabah’s political landscape to allow only local parties in the state.
He claimed when the terms and conditions were laid out, all the assemblymen present agreed to unite in an alliance of local parties and make the Sabah for Sabahans cause better represented.
“It was easier to negotiate with BN because they are just one group. Unlike Warisan and PH, where I will be looking at four groups,” he said.
