Former Gerakan man Raymond Tan joining Warisan?


SANDAKAN: Former Sabah deputy chief minister and former Tanjung Papat assemblyman Datuk Raymond Tan Shu Kiah is rumoured to be joining Parti Warisan Sabah (Warisan) on Friday (May 3).

The move is seen as a boost to Warisan's ally, the DAP, ahead of the Sandakan parliamentary by-election.

A party source has indicated that Tan will be joining Sabah Chief Minister and Warisan president Datuk Seri Mohd Shafie Apdal in a ceremony in Sandakan in the afternoon, where he is expected to hand over his membership application to the party.

Coincidentally or not, a note to the media from the Chief Minister's office is slating a 3pm press conference by Shafie.

Tan, who left Gerakan in April this year, could not be be reached for comments.

He lost Tanjung Papat seat in the 2018 elections to Sabah DAP deputy chairman Datuk Frankie Poon Ming Fung who garnered 5,818 majority.
