GRS strengthened with four Sabah STAR reps

KOTA KINABALU: The inclusion of four Sabah STAR representatives in the Gabungan Rakyat Sabah (GRS) line-up puts the coalition on firm ground, says party youth chief Rizal Johari.

He said: “The inclusive line-up demonstrates that the government is serious about fulfilling its Aku Janji election manifesto.”

“It is good to see this development because it also shows that GRS is not affected by the political turmoil in Peninsular Malaysia. STAR youth is optimistic this news will finally put an end to any notion that GRS is on a shaky ground.”

The four leaders in the 27-member GRS committee are Sabah STAR president Datuk Seri Dr Jeffrey Kitingan, deputy president Datuk Ellron Angin, secretary-general Datuk Guandee Kohoi and assistant secretary-general Ardino Diris.

On Saturday, GRS chairman Datuk Hajiji Noor named Sabah Umno chairman Datuk Seri Bung Moktar Radin as GRS deputy chairman I, Parti Bersatu Sabah president Datuk Seri Maximus Ongkili as deputy chairman II and Jeffrey as deputy chairman III when the new nine-party coalition solidified itself through an MoU.

The GRS grouping that was formed before the Sept 26 state election involves two coalitions – Sabah Perikatan Nasional (four parties) and Sabah Barisan Nasional (four parties) – and Parti Bersatu Sabah.
