The proposal came as part of a a so-called ‘Tambunan Declaration’ announced by Datuk Jeffrey Kitingan at a rally on Saturday, when he officially joined the party. 

PKR adviser Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim was present at the gathering that was held in the stronghold of Dr Jeffrey’s brother, Datuk Seri Joseph Pairin Kitingan. – Bernama
