SANDAKAN: Independent candidate Hamzah Abdullah has claimed that he has more than 50 Parti Amanah Negara members to support his campaign in the May 11 by-election.

“There are more than 50 Amanah members committed to my struggle to defend the people’s rights, who are also not afraid of being expelled,” he said yesterday.

The former Sabah Amanah chairman was responding to a warning issued by Sabah Amanah chairman Haris Alimudin that disciplinary action would be taken against its members for supporting party rebel Hamzah, who resigned from all posts in the party last August.

Hamzah slammed Haris, accu­sing him of being an opportunist who only wanted positions.

“Haris has no business talking about discipline as he himself is part of a dirty agenda to sidestep me after Amanah formed the government.

“He is not fit to talk about discipline as he is an opportunist who wants to grab positions,” he added.

Hamzah claimed that it was Ama­nah which offered him an opportunity to form the party’s Sabah chapter in 2015.

“I did not join Amanah. Instead, it was Amanah that offered me to form Sabah Amanah way back in May 2015.

“I have sacrificed so much for Amanah but what I get in return is a betrayal by Haris,” said Hamzah, who was the former state PAS commissioner.
