Hajiji urged to state stand on KDM’s decision to challenge BN, GRS in GE15

KOTA KINABALU: Sabah Chief Minister Datuk Seri Hajiji Noor has been urged to state his stand on the decisions of the Social Democratic Prosperity Party (KDM) to contest against Barisan Nasional (BN) and Gabungan Rakyat Sabah (GRS) in the 15th General Election (GE15).


Sabah BN secretary Datuk Jafry Arifin said this was necessary in order to avoid confusion among the people with regard to the GRS’ stand on cooperation with parties friendly to the GRS-BN government.

“As we know, the KDM party has expressed support for, and even has applied to join the GRS, but at the same time, KDM has already announced several candidates who will challege BN and GRS candidates in GE15…this is very confusing,” he said in a statement today.

Therefore, Jafry who is also the Sabah UMNO liaison Secretary said Hajiji as GRS Chairman needs to clarify the matter once and for all.

Yesterday, the KDM party announced that it will be vying for four parliamentary seats in GE15.

Its president, Datuk Peter Anthony was quoted as saying the party would contest in Kimanis, Sepanggar, Kota Kinabalu and Kota Marudu.

Regarding the KDM’s position within the GRS, Peter said that his party had not received any response to its application to join the coalition.
