Waytha Moorthy and Others Who Sell Out the Interests of Their Ethnic Community to Seek Power and Position Will Be Spurned by the People

Hindraf’s leadership headed by Waytha Moorthy and N. Ganesan signed off a Memorandum of Understanding entitled “Hindraf-Barisan Nasional (BN) Five-Year Blueprint” (hereinafter referred as “MoU”) with BN ruling clique headed by Najib Razak on 18 Apr. The following is a 4-point statement issued by Sahabat Rakyat Johore Working Committee with regard to this issue:

Yong ulangi SAPP tidak akan kembali ke pangkuan BN

KOTA KINABALU, April 26, 2013: Presiden Parti Maju Sabah (SAPP) Datuk Seri Yong Teck Lee mengulangi pendirian bahawa beliau dan parti itu tidak akan kembali ke pangkuan Barisan Nasional (BN) tanpa mengira apakah keputusan Pilihan Raya Umum ke-13 nanti.

Yong berkata, beliau tidak akan mahu mengkhianati kepercayaan dan sokongan yang di berikan oleh rakyat kepadanya selama ini.

The incident that changed Sabah

Rebel priest, Benjamin Basintal, who stood up for social
justice once blogged: 'Let us fix a collapsing Malaysia
once and for all and let's begin now.'
KOTA KINABALU: Benjamin Basintal died last month. Few will remember that name unless they happened to live in Sabah in 1990.
It was perhaps typical that the daily newspapers with their jingoisms and fawning, sloppy journalism ignored the death of the former Catholic priest-turned-teacher from organ failure at the age of 59.
A bit odd because Benjamin, then a young priest, was the man at the centre of a curious event that was credited and blamed, depending on which side you are on, for the near landslide victory of the opposition Parti Bersatu Sabah government in the 1990 elections.
This was before the state was perversely opened to hundreds of thousands of immigrants, especially Muslims, who were swiftly granted citizenship in an alleged scheme to re-engineer the Christian-majority state into the Muslim one which it has since become.

Give Proof of Killing of 35 Gunment - Jeffrey

KOTA KINABALU: STAR has challenged caretaker Defence Minister, Datuk Seri Dr. Zahid Hamidi to give proof that 35 terrorists have been killed by the Philippines security forces in Sibutu Island on nomination day.

STAR's State chairman, Datuk Dr. Jeffrey Kitingan said in a statement here that the denial by the Philippines that such a thing ever happened raises a lot of doubts in the minds of Malaysian people about the veracity of Zahid's claim.

"He seems to be quoting only Malaysian sources there is no corroborating evidence from any outside sources," Jeffrey said.

There is need to increase Christian reps, says Kanul

By Ezra Haganez
KOTA BELUD : There is a need to increase the number of Christian parliamentarians as the group was currently under-represented, claimed an independent candidate for the Kota Belud parliamentary seat here.

Kanul Gindol, 47, said there could well be less than 10 percent Christian MPs in Malaysia's Parliament, thus this had helped put Christians here vulnerable to exploitations and bullying by the larger blocks.

"A huge majority of the total 222 parliamentary seats in Parliament are already occupied by Muslim MPs as well as the Chinese leaders.

Fixed deposit: Najib is insulting the people of Sabah

KOTA KINABALU:  Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak once again insulted the people in this state by reiterating Sabah as a fixed deposit, described by Datuk Seri Yong Teck Lee as insensitive to the feelings of the people in Sabah who mostly do not believe such tag.

“Najib is insensitive and the statement is an insult to the people of Sabah,” said the SAPP President when commenting on the PM’s statement who stated that the state will remain a fixed deposit for the Barisan Nasional (BN).

Minister playing politics with security matters

KOTA KINABALU: Sabah Progressive Party (SAPP) President Datuk Yong Teck Lee said it is irresponsible on the part of the Defence Minister who is trying to play politics with security matters.

He said, the minister is neither here nor there in making the allegations of the three opposition leaders involved in the Lahad Datu intrusion.

The government should take immediate action as it involves national security.

Petronas; Dr. M & Umno’s Cave Of Gold

When Dr M, the ex-Prime Minister’s son Mirzan was in financial trouble with his shipping company, Konsortium Perkapalan Berhad, Dr M asked Anwar(Finance Minister that time) to instruct Petronas via MISC to help him. However, Mirzan wanted a higher valuation price, therefore MISC had a problem. The Late Dato Yassin, MISC Managing Director, told straight to Mirzan face, "Awak ingat MISC bapak awak punya company". And Mirzan reported to his father.

MISC was only willing to pay RM 950 million but Mirzan insisted RM1.3 billion in order to cover his cost. Anwar finally agreed to his request after Hasan Merican told Anwar, “Jangan cari pasal, dia anak Boss. Anyway, MISC is not your company”.

Like Anwar, Najib is ignorant about Sabah's autonomy - STAR

PUTATAN: The assurance by the Prime Minister that Sabah's autonomy is a non-issue because its provision is still intact "under the 20-Points of the Malaysia Agreement" is unacceptable because it misses the whole point about Sabah's autonomy, said State Reform Party (STAR).

STAR's State deputy chairman, Awang Ahmad Sah, who is contesting for the Putatan parliamentary constituency under the STAR's ticket, said in statement here that the Prime Minister seems to be as ignorant as PKR advisor Anwar Ibrahim on the matter of Sabah's autonomy.
 

Federal Interference Hampering Sabah's Autonomy - STAR

KOTA KINABALU:  State Reform Party (STAR) is adamant that Sabah is in a lot of mess and its development stunted because of federal interference.

Its Sabah Deputy Chairman, Daniel John Jambun said this to refute the claim by the Chief Minister Datuk Seri Musa Aman who said that Sabah is fully governed by the State Cabinet without any federal interference.
 

Are you saying BN ‘owns’ police and army, Najib?

KOTA KINABALU: Local opposition State Reform Party (STAR) has taken offence to caretaker Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak’s reference that the opposition parties were a threat to national security.

Accusing Najib of being hypocritical towards security in Sabah, STAR chief Jeffrey Kitingan reminded the prime minister that it was his administration that had ignored the pleas of a former OCPD for help in Sabah and was slow to act on the Lahad Datu incursion.

SUHAKAM Report on impacts of 50 Years of BN rule on Natives

Independent candidate for Kota Belud
constituency, Kanul Gindol
KOTA BELUD : Journalist-activist Kanul Gindol, who is standing for election in May 5 general election, has called on the Federal and State Governments to immediately release SUHAKAM Report on Impacts of 50 Years BN Rule On Natives.
We have been made to understand that the UMNO-led ruling party Barisan Nasional  suppressed the release of SUHAKAM's Report fearing its backlash ahead of the national election.

Kanul, 47, is an independent candidate using "key" as his symbol seeking to be elected as parliamentarian for Kota Belud.

STAR blasts PM on Malaysian history

KOTA KINABALU: State Reform Party (STAR) had blasted the caretaker prime minister for "his ignorance about Malaysian history."
 
Sabah STAR deputy chairman Daniel John Jambun said that he was utterly shocked by Najib's speech in Bongawan yesterday in which he said that, " Sabah made the right decision to join the Malaysian federation, which paved its path to independence on Sept 16, 1963 ."
 

“Forced To Become Coolies In Their Own Lands” MAJOR EXCLUSIVE



Representation of East Malaysia’s Chief Ministers submitted to Sarawak Report by a reader

Sarawak Report has received a leaked copy of a devastating official report on the treatment of the natives of Sabah and Sarawak, which BN has been trying to keep secret until after the election.

In the report Malaysia’s human rights commission Suhakam has lambasted Taib’s State Government on count after count over its conduct over native land rights.

It concludes that the indigenous people of the region have been “forced to become Coolies in their own lands” by the actions of the Land Custody and Development Authority, which Taib personally chairs.

Najib’s Sabah visit stirs Musa speculation


Speculations are rife that Chief Minister Musa Aman’s days
are numbered and that Putrajaya may move him out as part
of its ‘transformation’ programme
KOTA KINABALU: Caretaker Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak arrives here today on a campaign stop to push the ruling Barisan Nasional’s message in one of the key states his coalition must win to ensure he is not toppled from power.

Najib will first fly to Kuala Penyu and then Papar on the west coast of the state where a surging opposition has made Umno jittery in both the state and parliamentary seats.

There are three parliamentary constituencies – Beaufort, Kimanis and Papar – up for grabs here and Umno is facing a tough fight in all. The state seats in the immediate vicinity are Kawang, Pantai Manis, Bongawan, Membakut , Klias and Kuala Penyu.

Questions over RM40m donation to Umno

Sabah government must probe the source of the RM40 million
inetrcepted in Hong Kong, so as to determine whether it is
legitimate or black money, says SAPP.
KOTA KINABALU: Sabah Progressive Party (SAPP) president Yong Teck Lee has vowed to pursue a puzzling RM40 million “political contribution” by Sabah Umno to the Umno headquarters three years after Hong Kong anti-corruption authorities began investigating suspicious cash flows out of the territory.

Speaking at its nightly “kopitiam ceramah” held at a shopping area here on Sunday, the former chief minister, now a candidate for the Likas state constituency, stressed that it is important to determine the source of the money, as it could involve the nation and state interest.

KOTA KINABALU, 22 April 2013: Calon Parti Maju Sabah (SAPP) bagi kerusi Dewan Undangan Negeri (DUN) Kepayan, Chong Pit Fah, diberi sambutan hangat apabila melakukan lawatan ke Lido di sini.

“Rata-rata mereka inginkan perubahan. Saya difahamkan bahawa banyak masalah di DUN Kepayan masih tidak selesai sejak sekian lama.

Find a way for these East M’sians to vote, EC told

The Election Commission (EC) has been told to find a way to enable East Malaysians studying, working or residing in Peninsular Malaysia to vote.

There are many Sarawakians and Sabahans who are ‘stranded’ in the peninsula on May 5. They will not be able to vote because they could not afford to return home.

Movement for Change, Sarawak (MoCS) leader Francis Paul Siah felt that it was the EC’s responsibility to devise a mechanism to resolve this long-standing issue.

Five-cornered fight in Kota Belud may give surprising results

Kanul Gindol is contesting in Kota Belud
parliamentary under BEBAS ticket.
KOTA BELUD : Journalist-activist Kanul Gindol, 47, who is vying for Kota Belud parliamentary seat is the only Christian candidate in the five-cornered tussle for the hot seat.
Local observers said this situation might pose "hiccups" in the attempts by all three parties contesting -- Barisan Nasional, PKR as wells as STAR -- to get the already-agitated Christian voters in the area.
Worried most are BN and PKR, with STAR already going around to explain why a muslim had been picked instead for Kota Belud after the party earlier picked another muslim candidate, Majimis Timbuong, for the adjacent Kota Marudu parliamentary seat, an overwhelmingly Christian area.
 

Ansari questions PKR’s choice of Ku Li’s men

Tuaran PKR chief Ansari Abdullah will lodge an official
complaint with ROS about APS’ involvement in politics.
TUARAN: Tuaran PKR division chief Ansari Abdullah has accused PKR leaders of preaching and practicing ‘fake justice’.
“How can we proclaim ourselves as a party that is fighting for the people’s justice when we can’t even ensure justice within the party?”
He was alluding to the PKR central’s contentious decision to field members of Angkatan Perubahan Sabah (APS) led by former deputy president of Upko Wilfred Bumburing.
Bumburing is contesting under the PKR ticket for the Tuaran parliamentary and Tamparuli state seats. Another APS candidate is Gulabdin B Enjih who is contesting the Sulaman state seat.

TEACH UMNO-BN A LESSON - Anwar tells voters as DAP confirms using PAS, PKR logos

Written by  Wong Choon Mei, Alaa Soleiman, Malaysia Chronicle
 Opposition Leader Anwar Ibrahim called on Chinese voters not to be tricked by Prime Minister Najib Razak's  "dirty politics", accusing the ruling Umno-BN coalition of trying to cheat by making it impossible for the DAP to use its Rocket logo in coming general election.
He also advised the DAP, one of the 3 Opposition parties that make up the Pakatan Rakyat coalition, not to be demoralized but to continue to fight even it if it meant having to contest under the logos of the other 2 Pakatan parties - PKR and PAS.

Kit Siang weeps over ROS letter

The DAP veteran is floored by ROS notice of non-recognition
of the party leadership hours before nomination day tomorrow.
JOHOR BARU: An emotional DAP veteran Lim Kit Siang today shed tears over the non- recognition of the DAP leadership by the Registrar of Societies (ROS).

“April 18, 2013… has been the most heart-rending day in my life,” Lim said at a press conference, tears streaming down his cheeks as he read out a statement.

Regaining his composure, he added: “It was the day when the Registrar of Societies dispatched a letter to the DAP to knock out the Rocket symbol from the 13th general election.”

The Thai national is expected to make an appearance
at a ceramah in Permatang Pauh tonight.

Challenge to public debate on Sabah issues, slanders by DAP and PBS

KOTA KINABALU, April 18, 2013: Sabah Progressive Party (SAPP) President Datuk Seri Yong Teck Lee has again challenged his two adversaries DAP Sabah chief Jimmy Wong and its Adviser Dr Hiew King Cheu, to a public debate on pressing issues that affect the state and the people.

And this time, he even included PBS candidate for Kota Kinabalu parliamentary seat, Chin Tek Ming and MCA candidate for Luyang, Datuk Agnes Shim.

Don't be dictated by Malayan parties

KOTA KINABALU, April 18, 2013: Sabah Progressive Party (SAPP) president Datuk Seri Yong Teck Lee has accused Pakatan Rakyat (PR) of sabotaging its chances of winning by fielding candidates in constituencies which SAPP is contesting, although PR has little or no influence in these constituencies.

He cited for example, PR is fielding their candidates in such constituencies like Sepanggar, Putatan and Inanam where SAPP candidates are contesting.

PETALING JAYA: Sabah PKR, in collaboration with two state-based NGOs friendly to it, plans to contest for 19 parliament and 43 state seats.
Sabah PKR chief Ahmad Thamrin Jaini told a press conference here today that the group had prepared a list of candidates after gathering feedback from the ground.
PKR chief Anwar Ibrahim had endorsed the list, he said.
He added that DAP and PAS would field candidates in the constituencies not covered by the list.

DUN:

Who Can Provide Better Security From Foreign Invasion?

UMNO has predictably tried to con(vince) the Sabah people to vote for them in the General Elections because UMNO BN can provide better security from foreign invasion.

If none of us have woken up yet we should ask "Who has been providing this security?"

The blame for the spectacular and disastrous Lahad Datu security failure falls squarely on UMNO's front doorsteps. The buck stops here.

SAPP unveils candidates list

KOTA KINABALU, April 17, 2013: Sabah Progressive Party (SAPP) president Datuk Yong Teck Lee delivered an important message to the people that under the Constitution of Sabah, only a political party with a majority of seats in the Sabah Legislative Assembly shall form the Sabah Government. Unregistered parties and unregistered coalition of parties and NGOs are not qualified under the law to be elected as governments.

Fulfilling our struggle for autonomy, SAPP will contest a majority of State seats so that the Sabah government will be elected by the people of Sabah and answerable only to the people of Sabah.

STAR will be the best platform, says ex-principal

By Ezra Haganez
RANAU :  A former secondary school principal from State Reform Party (STAR) is poised to take on veteran Masidi Manjun in Keranaan, Ranau.

Jalibin Paidi, 44, who quit as principal of SMK Entilibon last year is said to have been given the nod as STAR candidate for Keranaan.
STAR Sabah chairman, Jeffrey Kitingan, is scheduled to announce STAR's full list on Thursday (April 18) to coincide with the launching of the party's manifesto in Kota Kinabalu.
 

Anwar plays political poker in Sabah

Sabah Pakatan Rakyat is yet to consolidate its list of
candidates as it toys with STAR and SAPP.
KUALA LUMPUR: With nominations just days away, speculations are rife that Opposition Leader Anwar Ibrahim is engaging Jeffrey Kitingan’s State Reform Party (STAR) in a 11th hour bid to find a solution to what promises to be a crippling election for Pakatan Rakyat if it remains adamant and uncompromising on Sabah seats.

Nomination is set for April 20 and by tomorrow all state Barisan Nasional component parties would have announced their list of candidates.

GE13: Ong Tee Keat may stand as Independent candidate in Pandan

Former MCA President, Datuk Seri Ong Tee Keat
KUALA LUMPUR, April 16 — Will former MCA president Datuk Seri Ong Tee Keat contest the Pandan Parliamentary seat as an Independent candidate?
“Just wait for nomination day,” Ong was quoted as saying by Chinese daily Nanyang Siang Pau today.
MCA yesterday named Garry Lim Chin Yee, 39, the division’s legal advisor to step into the fray against PKR’s strategic director, Rafizi Ramli, in the May 5 polls in the Malay-dominated area.
Pandan Wanita MCA chief Cindy Leong Siew Kam, who had known Ong for over 20 years, said it was unlike Ong to end his political career without a fight, and and she would not be surprised if he stood as an independent.

PBS retains incumbents

The selection of PBS candidates for the 13th general election
left observers surprised and supporters disappointed.
By Luke Rintod of FMT
PENAMPANG: Parti Bersatu Sabah (PBS), Umno’s staunchest local ally, will field all its incumbents in the May 5 general election much to the disappointment of its supporters and political observers.

The party has three MPs and 12 assemblymen.

The only new faces on the list are former school principal Mary Yap who will contest in Tawau and Fung Fen Lui who is slotted for the Tanjung state seat.

I am still young and capable: Pairin, 73, to contest two seats again

PENAMPANG: Parti Bersatu Sabah (PBS) president Joseph Pairin Kitingan said he would defend his Keningau parliamentary and Tambunan state seats in the 13th general election.
The Sabah Deputy Chief Minister who had been politically active since 1975 described his bids as his last battle to retain both constituencies for the Barisan Nasional in the interest of the people.
On the party’s other candidates, he indicated that there would be new faces in the line-up.

Silence of KDM giants disappointing

Come Sunday, the full list of candidates for all constituencies in the 13th General Election, will be known. Between nomination day up to voting, more crossovers from opposition parties to BN component parties or vice-versa can be expected starting with the ‘ditching’ of DAP by two Kadazan leaders in Sabah.

The purported reason behind the crossovers was due to KDM’s main leaders launching a so-called ‘Gelombang Tataba” a vision that would bring golden opportunities for the people through the unity of the three KDM BN component parties.

Anwar after Hindraf over Ministry of Orang Asal and Minority Affairs (Moama)

By Joe Fernandez

Is Jayathas of Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR), allegedly Opposition Leader Anwar Ibrahim’s newly-recruited political mandore from Hindraf, trying to say the NGO should not be registered just because his boss doesn’t like it?

It appears to be so judging from his song-and-dance act on Sat at a press conference, for his 15 minutes of fame, on the subject.

Hindraf, or any organisation, has a right to be registered. It's the Registrar of Societies (ROS) which plays politics with registration, on the instructions of Umno, until the matter ends up in Court. Umno doesn't own the ROS.

Lu Kacau Gua, Gua Kacau Lu – Hindraf under Star symbol and flag in Malaya!

By Joe Fernandez
It’s confirmed! Hindraf Makkal Sakthi will be fielding candidates in Malaya under the Borneo-based State Reform Party’s (Star) symbol and flag in the forthcoming 13th General Election on May 5. Star is a national party.

Star chairman Jeffrey Kitingan, in a text message a little while ago said: “Let Hindraf be a big surprise.”

Hindraf chairman P. Waythamoorthy in a text message confirmed: “We are still finalizing the list.”

Tataba Wave emboldens Mahathir and UMNO to strangle the nation

By Ezra Haganez
KOTA KINABALU : Opposition State Reform Party (STAR) has accused that the Gelombang Tataba promulgated by PBS, UPKO and PBRS is nothing but to propel UMNO's "ketuanan Melayu" over Sabahans.

STAR Sabah deputy chairman, Daniel John Jambun, said Sabahans must realise that the Gelombang Tataba was nothing but the idea of UMNO to empower Mahathir Mohamad to help perpetuate "ketuanan Melayu dan UMNO" to overlord Sabahans.

Taib’s our ‘chief campaigner’, says opposition

The Barisan Nasional lives on corruption and all PM Najib Tun Razak
can do is to condone such wrong doings, says Sarawak DAP
KUCHING: If Sarawak opposition wins its targeted 16 parliamentary seats in the May 5 general election, it will be due entirely to Chief Minister Taib Mahmud.
Describing Taib as the opposition’s “chief campaigner”, state DAP said “if he does not step down as promised” the likelihood of an opposition win was very high.
In the 2011 state election, allegations of corruption, land grabs and power abuse by Taib and his cronies saw the opposition wrest an unprecedented 15 seats.
Post-election analysis had pointed out a more than 40% swing in voter support for the opposition in the once strong Barisan Nasional frontiers.

Opposition ‘spoilers’ giving Sabah BN quiet wins

By Luke Rintod of FMT
STAR and SAPP have reminded Sabah DAP and Sabahans that
voting for Pakatan would be a case of jumping from the
frying pan into fire situation.
KOTA KINABALU : Opposition parties DAP, SAPP and STAR have a common enemy in Barisan Nasional. Yet they seem unable to hold it together, constantly kniving each other instead of plotting against their enemy.
This in itself is intriguing and is telling of Sabah’s layered opposition politics which runs deep on distrust.
Yesterday, DAP’s sole parliamentarian Hiew King Chew, accused both State Reform Party (STAR) and Sabah Progressive Peoples Party (SAPP) of being “useless” parties that cannot do anything.
“It is a waste to vote STAR or SAPP,” he had said in statement that lumped the two parties as “spoilers” in the 13th general election.

Indians suffered 56 years of internal colonisation!

By Joe Fernandez
The departure of the British administrators from Malaya in 1957, ostensibly giving independence to the country, meant nothing to the Indian Nation.

Indians soon found that they had exchanged one colonial master for another, from the British to the Malay-speaking communities drawn from the Bugis, Javanese, Minang, Acehnese, Arab Muslims and Indian Muslims, among others. This was the Malay Nation, a people without territory in Singapore, Malaya, south Thailand, Sri Lanka, Madagascar and South Africa.

Election looms but hospital not ready

KOTA KINABALU, 10 April 2013: Sabah Progressive Party (SAPP) is demanding the chaotic and depressing situation plaguing health care services in the state be addressed without further delays.

SAPP Information Chief Chong Pit Fah said health care services in Sabah have deteriorated to its lowest following the declaration that the towers of the Queen Elizabeth Hospital 1 (QEH 1), was unsafe on 24 October 2008.

Hiew Ignorant of Sabah Rights - STAR

KOTA KINABALU: DAP's Member of Parliament, Hiew King Chew, fails to see the reality of Sabah's dire needs within the federation because he is a member of a Malayan-based party, says State Reform Party (STAR).
 
STAR Sabah's Information Chief Edward Linggu said this in a statement in response to Hiew who had told voters not to waste votes on STAR and SAPP yesterday. He claimed that  a STAR or SAPP state government wouldn't be able to function because it will be an opposition state even if PR took over Putrajaya, just like PBS government was after it was the state opposition government.
 

Generasi muda kurang tahu Sejarah Batu Sumpah Keningau

Oleh:  Roger  Binson  A.S
KENINGAU: Batu  setinggi  4  kaki  yang  terpacak  teguh  di  hadapan  bangunan  Urusetia   Keningau  merupakan  bahan  sejarah  yang  amat  berharga  bagi  masyarakat  Sabah  khususnya  di  pedalaman. Malangnya  pada   masa  kini   generasi muda  hanya mengenali batu  itu  tidak lebih dari sekadar landskap  bagi  menceriakan  kawasan  sekitarnya.

Mere ‘fraud’ not consideration in 13th GE

By Joe Fernandez   

Malaysians by and large worry that “fraudulent practices” by way of the electoral rolls and at the ballot box will cheat them out of the Government they want in Putrajaya and in the states. This should not be read as having a Pakatan Rakyat (PR) Government in the Federal Administrative Centre instead of one formed by the Barisan Nasional (BN).

Fraud can work both ways although the outgoing BN, revamped from the Alliance Party in the wake of the searing Sino-Malay race riots of 13 May, 1969, has ruled the country since 1957 when the British left Malaya.

Fraud in Malaysian politics never-ending

By Joe Fernandez

If the 1987 Umno presidential election is taken as one yardstick, the response of the Court may not be in favour of a novel development of the law or, as some would allege, making law.

In that party election, the Court discovered that votes from 30 illegal party branches may have contributed towards Mahathir Mohamad’s narrow 43-vote victory over his challenger Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah. It was alleged that the 30 illegal branches were aligned towards Mahathir. Even so, in a surprising ruling, Judge Harun Hashim declared the entire party unlawful. Had the Judge concluded that the illegal votes may have gone in the direction of Razaleigh, that ruling would not have arisen since the outcome was not affected!

SAPP: New Federal Government will have to honour full autonomy to Sabah or, risk losing her forever

Yong gestures to highlight the inclusion of
Sabah/North Borneo in the Philippines maps;
KOTA KINABALU, April 7, 2013: Whoever forms the next Federal government will have to honour, recognise and respect political autonomy to Sabah, as promised in the Malaysia Agreement, which is the basis for the formation of Malaysia in 1963.

Any attempt to depart from the “letter and spirit” of the formation of Malaysia will only fortify and intensify the Sulu/Philippines claim on Sabah.

President of de-registered PASOK joins PKR

By Ezra Haganez
KOTA KINABALU : Former President of now-deregistered PASOK, Cleftus Mojingol, is joining opposition Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR).
Mojingol who is currently on a business trip in Taiwan, issued his statement to join PKR through his one-time secretary-general of PASOK, Kanul Gindol, in Kota Kinabalu today. Kanul was also a former PKR Sabah state liaison secretary.

Who will the Suluks support?

By Luke Rintod of FMT
Sabah Umno leaders do not believe that the Suluk voters in Sabah have deserted them following the Tanduo stand-off in Lahad Datu between Sulu terrorists and Malaysian armed forces.
“The majority of the Suluk voters are still with BN (Barisan Nasional),” said Nizam Abu Bakar Titingan, the principal political secretary to Sabah strongman, Musa Aman.
Many in the BN component parties like PBS, UPKO, LDP, PBRS and MCA share Nizam’s observation.
But deep within the Suluk community in Sabah, cracks are appearing.

Amir Kahar quit job, and later UMNO, to fight BN in Banggi

By Christian Danial
KOTA KINABALU : Sabah Barisan Nasional especially UMNO, is set to lose one of its northern chieftains, Amir Kahar Mustapha, who yesterday quit his UMNO-appointed job, and made known public his intention to "stand in the coming general election".

He quit the post of Inspector-General of Projects, an unglamorous post created to be of ministerial-status but which has little clout and notice.

Amir Kahar, a son of Sabah's first Yang di-Pertua Negara, Mustapha Harun, was briefly a former deputy chief minister under PBS government.

Sabah PKR beats Anwar in naming candidates

This is a test of whether the party leadership is sincere in
its promise to give us autonomy, says Ansari Abdullah.
KOTA KINABALU: Sabah PKR, pre-empting any likely ‘hijacking’ by Kuala Lumpur, hurriedly announced its seven candidates for the state’s west coast region.
Tuaran PKR chief Ansari Abdullah said Sabah PKR had “taken the liberty” of making the announcement based on an earlier promise by Pakatan Rakyat leaders, including Anwar Ibrahim, of giving “autonomy” for the state coalition’s decisions.
He said the candidates were himself for Tuaran constituency and surgeon-activist-author Dr Chong Eng Leong for Sepanggar.

Jeffrey tells Sabahans to think local

The Election Commission must ensure that the security personnel
in ESSZONE which encompasses 11 parliamentary and 30 state
constituencies are not postal voters.
KOTA KINABALU: Maverick Sabah leader Jeffrey Kitingan has appealed to the voters in Sabah to unite to protect their homeland from further control and colonisation by Malaya through its local proxies and stooges and to take back Sabah in the coming general election.
Now leading the State Reform Party (STAR) as its chairman, Jeffrey stressed that the appeal is to the people of Sabah across the board, regardless of their ethnicity and religion and whether they were beneficiaries of “Project IC” or not.
“We also urge all Sabahans who are currently away from Sabah to fulfil their patriotic duty and return and cast their votes to safeguard their homeland from being taken over by outsiders,” he added.

PKR "ori" wants Ansari as Tuaran candidate, not incumbent Bumburing

PENAMPANG: Parti Keadialan Rakyat (PKR) Sabah Thursday unveiled a list of seven proposed candidates for the West Coast North Zone.

They are senior lawyer Hj Ansari Abdullah (Tuaran), anti-illegal immigrant activist Dr Chong Eng Leong (Sepangar), Mazhry Nasir (Putatan), Anthony Mandiau (Kota Marudu), Mursalim Tanjul (Kudat), Saidil Semoi (Kota Belud) and Jonathan Yassin, the division chief for PKR Ranau, who is also brother-in-law to Ansari.

Unveiling this was Ansari who is also currently PKR Tuaran Chief in the presence of five of the seven proposed candidates and the various PKR divisional chiefs, in a press conference held at its Headquarters here.


‘Nazri still believes Sabahans stupid’

Where were the laws that federal minister Nazri Aziz
