PBS solid and intact, ready to face Warisan

KOTA MARUDU: Parti Bersatu Sabah (PBAS) is as solid and intact as when it was formed three decades ago.

Being the most senior local political party in Sabah, PBS has proved to be relevant and very much supported by the people.

“As such, PBS acting president Datuk Seri Dr Maximus Ongkili has nothing to fear nor panic about, as claimed by Parti Warisan secretary-general Loretto Padua Jr in a statement recently,” said PBS deputy youth chief Christopher Mandut.

Christopher added that the party’s struggle is known to the Sabah people.

“We have proven our sincerity and consistency in fighting for the rights and interests of the people. We are not a one-year plus party like Warisan,” he said.

Loretto recently described Maximus to be in “panicky mode and under tremendous pressure” following the recent exit of PBS grassroot leaders to join Warisan.

Christopher further commented that Warisan is an untested party of mainly party-hoppers.

“The Semporna party is not saleable in the west coast and interior of Sabah.

“Leaders who left were just a handful and enticed by party positions and other benefits offered by the opposition,” he said.

Christoper said PBS is well prepared for the coming general election, adding: “PBS and Barisan Nasional machinery are ready to take on the challenge of the opposition … we are all ready to face Warisan anywhere, anytime”.

Loretto recently rebutted Maximus for saying that voting for the opposition is a waste of time.

He said the PBS leader simply cannot provide better argument anymore as to why Sabahans, particularly the Kadazandusun Murut community have to continue supporting the Barisan Nasional and PBS.

Loretto also said that Maximus was actually under tremendous pressure and in panicky mode when many of the PBS grassroot leaders all over the State had deserted the party and joined Warisan.
