PBS WANTS 6 OUT OF 13 NEW STATE SEATS IN SABAH

The Sun (Malaysia) - - NEWS WITHOUT BORDERS -

PENAMPANG: Parti Ber­satu Sabah (PBS) wants to be al­lo­cated six out of the 13 newly cre­ated state seats in the com­ing 14th gen­eral elec­tion. Its deputy pres­i­dent Datuk Seri Max­imus Ongk­ili said the party’s re­quest was made based on the lo­ca­tion of the seats, with some be­ing PBS strongholds. He said among the six new seats re­quested were Men­garis, Telupid, Langkon and Lim­ba­hau, which were tra­di­tion­ally PBS-ser­viced ar­eas. “We could go for mixed seats be­cause we have Mus­lim and Chi­nese (mem­bers). We can also go for purely Kadazan seats as 40% of PBS mem­bers are non-Mus­lim bu­mipu­tra.” – Ber­nama
