PBRS’ Kurup keen to contest for Tulid

KOTA KINABALU: Parti Bersatu Rakyat Sabah (PBRS) Arthur Joseph Kurup is keen to contest in the newly-created Tulid state seat in the Pensiangan district.

“I am ready to offer myself as a candidate,” he said after a programme to help people under Bantuan Sara Hidup 2020 at Pagalungan.

However, Arthur who is also Pensiangan MP, said that it would be up to Sabah Barisan Nasional to decide if he should be the candidate.

“If I am asked to contest, I am ready to serve.

“As of now, I’ve not received any instructions from the leadership,” said Arthur, who is also PBRS deputy president.

PBRS, together with Sabah Umno and Sabah MCA, are part of Sabah Barisan that saw five former member parties leave after the May 2018 elections.

Last week, PBRS youth exco chief Edwin Laimin said that a PBRS candidate was suitable for the Tulid seat, as the party had a good track record serving the Pensiangan area for decades under Barisan.

Another Opposition MP eyeing a state seat is Sabah Umno chief Datuk Bung Moktar Radin, who said that he was keen to contest the newly-created Lamag state

seat, which is within his Kinabatangan parliamentary constituency.

A total of 73 of state seats including 13 new seats will be up for grabs in the snap state polls expected to be held in September.
