KOTA KINABALU: Newly-appointed Sabah Special Functions Minister Datuk Teo Chee Kang has been tasked to handle matters affecting the Chinese community.

Chief Minister Datuk Seri Musa Aman said Teo would also be overseeing the state Economic Planning Unit (EPU).

"Part of his duties would be to see what more has to be done to ensure continued support from the (Chinese) community for Barisan Nasional," Musa said after chairing the first cabinet meeting following the 13th general election.

Sabah Barisan chartered losses in Chinese majority areas, notably the Kota Kinabalu state and Sandakan parliamentary seats.

As the Minister in charge of the state EPU, Teo would be meeting senior civil servants to chart Sabah's future development programmes, oversee their implementation and ensure satisfactory results, Musa said.

At the cabinet meeting earlier, Musa said he reminded the ministers that it was now to get down to work to fulfill Barisan's promises to the people.

"My message to them is that the time for politics and polemics is over," he added.

Asked about ongoing development projects in areas won by the Opposition, Musa said these would continue.

"What we have planned will continue. We are committed to the people's well-being," he added.

Meawhile, Musa said assemblymen would take their oaths on June 13.

Yang diPertua Negri Tun Juhar Mahiruddin will open the 14th sitting of the state assembly on June 17, which would then sit from June 18 to 20, Musa added.
