KOTA KINABALU: Sabah DAP’s Luyang assemblyman Hiew King Cheu has gone on leave as his party peers wait to see if he moves to quit the party.
“I need a holiday to think about my future work,” said Hiew, who last week resigned as Sabah DAP adviser and openly toyed with the idea of leaving the party to become an independent assemblyman following a fallout with local state leaders.
Hiew, who did not say how long he would be on holiday or where he was going, said that he was taking a break as it had been a long time since he took a holiday.
“I have been tied down with a lot of work since I was Kota Kinabalu MP (2008-13) and now as the Luyang assemblyman.
“I feel it is time to take a break, recuperate and think things over,” he said in disclosing that his holiday began yesterday (Wednesday).
However, he said people who needed his services could call the assemblyman’s office in Foh Sang here as his colleagues would assist.
They can call the 088-254987 or his special assistant Andrew Lee at 016-812 0888 for any assistance.
Last week, Hiew, in resigning as Sabah DAP adviser, said he was unhappy with certain state leaders who had alienated him from the party’s activities and failed to consult him on issues.
Four elected leaders of the party here also sought disciplinary action against Hiew for supporting PKR’s Klias state assemblyman Datuk Lajim Ukin as state Opposition leader.
Sabah DAP’s choice was to support Tamparuli assemblyman Datuk Wilfred Bumburing, who heads an ad hoc Sabah Reform Movement but won the seat on a PKR ticket.
