‘BN can fix MyKad is­sue’

The Sun (Malaysia) - - NEWS WITHOUT BORDERS -

KOTA KIN­A­BALU: The state Barisan Na­sional (BN) can re­solve the is­sue of MyKad given to du­bi­ous cit­i­zens, said Parti Warisan Sabah pres­i­dent Datuk Seri Mohd Shafie Ap­dal.

He said state BN lead­ers should act on calls for new Malaysian iden­tity cards to be re-is­sued, adding that there was no point in blam­ing oth­ers.

Shafie was re­spond­ing to United Pa­sok­mo­mo­gun Kadazan­Dusun Mu­rut Or­gan­i­sa­tion pres­i­dent Datuk Seri Wil­fred Ma­dius Tan­gau’s speech on Satur­day call­ing for the re-is­suance of MyKads in Sabah, in line with the find­ings of a Royal Com­mis­sion of In­quiry (RCI) on il­le­gal im­mi­grants.

Speak­ing dur­ing his walk­a­bout at the Dong­gong­gon town Sun­day mar­ket in Penampang, he said the present lead­ers in power can re­solve the prob­lem.

Wil­fred, who is also Science, Tech­nol­ogy and In­no­va­tion min­is­ter, had shown a video of an in­ter­view with for­mer pre­mier Tun Dr Ma­hathir Mo­hamad al­legedly ad­mit­ting giv­ing cit­i­zen­ship to il­le­gal im­mi­grants in Sabah.

The Sem­porna MP was ac­com­pa­nied by Warisan deputy pres­i­dent Dar­rel Leik­ing, who is Penampang MP, and Likas assem­bly­man Junz Wong dur­ing his walk­a­bout.

“BN is in power. “If they think it is (wrong), they can rec­tify it. They have the power and au­thor­ity,” Shafie said.
