SANDAKAN: Former Gerakan vice-president Datuk Raymond Tan will use his influence to recruit more members into Parti Warisan Sabah.

The former deputy chief minister and former Tanjung Papat assemblyman said any Gerakan member who wished to follow him in joining Warisan must submit a formal application to leave the party first.

He said this after presenting his membership application to Warisan president Datuk Seri Mohd Shafie Apdal yesterday.

“Shafie asked me if I can join him in Warisan and I told him that it is not a problem.

“If any Gerakan members want to join me, quit the party right way,” he said during the event at the Taman Indah Jaya recreation club.

Asked to clarify on some 35 members who might be joining him, Tan said it was based on what was announced by Gerakan president Datuk Dr Dominic Lau, who said the group left the party after his resignation in April.

Shafie said DAP candidate Vivian Wong learned the trade from her late father Datuk Stephen Wong on how to be an accessible leader.

“There is no guarantee if PBS (Parti Bersatu Sabah) will support the amendment to the Malaysia Agreement 1963, but if Vivian wins, I believe she would not hesitate to vote and give her support.

“We want to ensure DAP will not only win but also increase in the majority,” Shafie said, adding that Warisan and DAP must show a united front.
