MEMBAKUT: People, especially voters in Kimanis, need to give a chance to Parti Warisan Sabah (Warisan) candidate to win in the Kimanis Parliamentary By-election (PRK), said Sabah Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (BERSATU) Chief, Datuk Seri Panglima Haji Hajiji Haji Noor.
He said Datuk Karim Bujang represents Warisan, the party leading the present State Government.
He said the Kimanis people and voters must support the candidate who represent the ruling party for the continuity of development progress for their own benefits.
“In Sabah, we need DEVELOPMENT POLITIC. We want to support the government to assist the people especially in areas still in need of development.
“Sabah is still far behind especially development for the rural area. Therefore, by having an elected representative from a ruling party, development for the people can be planned and realised faster and effectively.
“The Barisan Nasional (BN) and UMNO are presently oppositions. Its candidate will not be able to deliver any development to Kimanis area if the Kimanis voters chose BN,” he said.
Hajiji said this at the Leader-People Programme and House-To-House Visit organised by Sabah BERSATU Srikandi at Lumat and Mawao Polling District Centres (PDM) here on Tuesday.
He together with other Sabah BERSATU leaders are actively campaigning to assist Karim and to ensure Warisan wins in the Kimanis PRK
Hajiji, who is also Sulaman State Assemblyman, said as opposition party BN and UMNO is no longer capable of defending and assisting the people.
Instead, he said, the BN candidate and UMNO leaders can only give sweet promises that they will not be able to fulfil because they are not in the government.
“What the oppositions can do for the Kimanis people if they are given the mandate? What is clear right now is that BN and UMNO are not capable of bringing any changes for the people and the Kimanis parliamentary constituency.
“Therefore I would like to remind the Kimanis people to prioritise on the future. Choose Warisan candidate because only the elected representative from the ruling party is capable of bringing changes and fighting for people interests,” he stressed.
Hajiji said, during the GE14, the people has set their political choice by changing the past government. Definitely there is a reason why the previous government which had ruled the country for so long collapsed by the power of the people.
”In the last election (the previous government) had been punished by the people who chose the Pakatan Harapan (PH) at the Federal level and Warisan in Sabah,” he stressed.
Hajiji said the Warisan-led Sabah State Government, under the leadership of Datuk Seri Mohd Shafie Apdal should be given a space and time to continue the development agenda for the people and the State.
“Sabah needed a strong bond between the State Government and PH Government at the Federal-level, because to us the most important is the people and economic development for the people,” he added.-pr/BNN
