KOTA KINABALU: Independent Bingkor state assemblyman Datuk Dr Jeffrey Kitingan is hoping that Barisan Nasional will field him as a candidate in the coming state polls. 

He said his non-affiliation to any Sabah Barisan component party was not unique as there was already a precedent in Sarawak. 

Noting that the Barisan coalition only used its dacing symbol in the polls and not that of its individual component parties, Dr Jeffrey said there was no reason for him not to be selected as a candidate in the polls due to be called by April 12. 

“Though I am not with any party, I am maintaining good relations with all Barisan parties and their leaders,” said Dr Jeffrey, the Olympic Council of Malaysia vice-president, after receiving sponsorships for the Olympic Run 2003 here yesterday. 

He said this when asked about reports yesterday quoting him as saying that he hoped to contribute one seat to Sabah Barisan in the polls. 

Asked whether he would join a Barisan party if requested to do so as a prerequisite for his candidacy, Dr Jeffrey said: “I will decide on it when the time comes.”
