Hajiji welcomes Sindumin rep’s support for GRS

KOTA KINABALU: Sindumin assemblyman Datuk Dr Yusof Yacob’s support for the Gabungan Rakyat Sabah (GRS) government is welcomed, says Datuk Seri Hajiji Noor.

The Sabah Chief Minister said it was the democratic right of the assemblyman to decide on his political direction.

“We thank those who support the GRS state government’s agenda. We can now focus on unity and development for the people of Sabah,” he told reporters after launching the state-level National Sports Day here yesterday.

He was asked about Yusof’s decision on Friday to leave Warisan to become an Independent friendly to the GRS state government.

Yusof, in announcing his decision to quit the party, said he would support both the ruling state government under Hajiji as well as the federal leadership of Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob.

Warisan, which won 23 seats in last year’s Sept 26 state election, is left with 20 assemblymen following Yusof’s departure from the party.

He was the second assemblyman to do so after Sebatik assemblyman Hassan A Gani Pg Amir, who quit on Feb 25.

Another Warisan seat, Bugaya, has been left vacant following the death of its incumbent Manis Mukah Mohd Darah on Nov 17 last year.
