KOTA KINABALU: Sabah Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia is eyeing 45 of the 73 state seats in the coming polls, says its party chief Datuk Seri Hajiji Mohd Noor (pic).

"We are already prepared and have identified 45 constituencies to be contested by Bersatu candidates. We will present candidates with calibre who have the credibility and capability to win the seats they are contesting," he said.

He said Sabah Bersatu will be holding a meeting next week to discuss the preparations of the party's election machinery at each of the state seats.

Hajiji added that the party is ready to hold discussions with Perikatan Nasional, Umno and Barisan Nasional to combine strength to ensure victory in the coming election.

He said that Sabah Bersatu would also be offering the best manifesto and direction for the people of Sabah, which among others will focus on re-developing the state economy after the political crisis and the Covid-19 pandemic.

Hajiji added that the safeguarding of Sabah's rights, security, education, socio-economic affairs, security and racial unity were among the priorities the party plans to push under its manifesto for the coming election.

Bersatu, which did not contest in Sabah during the 2018 general election, spread its wings to Sabah in April 2019 and was boosted by the defections of nine Sabah Umno assemblymen and MPs.

Hajiji said that he is confident that Bersatu will become the best alternative accepted by the majority of the people to lead Sabah.

He also said that Sabah Bersatu will launch its election manifesto before nomination day.

"Through the manifesto that will be launched, we will offer the best for the people and Sabah if given the chance to form the state government," he added.
