Sabah may appoint Indian rep

KOTA KINABALU: Sabah’s Indians may again have a representative in the state assembly but the community has to wait as the government has no plans yet to fill the six vacant nominated assemblymen positions. 

Chief Minister Datuk Musa Aman said he would consider appointing someone from the minority community as a nominated assemblyman “when the time comes.” 

“But we have no intention as yet of appointing anyone. We already have many assemblymen and MPs,” he said after opening the Sabah Indian Association building at Sembulan near here yesterday.  

An Indian was made a nominated assemblyman in 1967 during the time of the Alliance government headed by the now-defunct Parti Usno.
