KOTA KINABALU: Datuk Peter Anthony’s (pic) new party has been registered and will be formally launched at the end of this month at an event in the Tenom district on Jan 28.
“Maybe many thought that this new party will not be approved for registration but it has been registered,” he said at an event in Kg Biau Papar near here on Sunday (Jan 16).
The former Parti Warisan vice president said a tour to introduce the new party to the people of Sabah is being planned.
Peter said this new party was not meant to cause disunity among the Kadazandusun Murut (KDM) community in Sabah, and that he had informed existing KDM-based parties like Parti Bersatu Sabah and Sabah STAR about this.
Previously, Sabah STAR president Datuk Seri Dr Jeffrey Kitingan had tried wooing Peter into his party but the latter declined.
The Melalap assemblyman added that his party would work to further unite the people and provide them with an alternative political platform
He also said that his party would help as many Sabahans as they could, irrespective of race or religion.
Asked about the actions of several division leaders and members who quit Warisan, he said their actions dispels talk that he quit the party due to pressure from his ongoing court case.
Also present at Sunday’s event was Limbahau assemblyman Datuk Jui Nuatim who also resigned with Peter the same time on Dec 28 last year.
