KOTA KINABALU: Parti Bersatu Sabah (PBS) Women and Youth wing leaders do not oppose any of the resolutions presented during its party congress here on Thursday (June 30).
In her thank you and acceptance speech, PBS women’s wing vice-chief Christina Anthony Kodou said that the issues and matters brought up were beneficial to the state’s development and addressed concerns.
She said with the general election seemingly just around the corner, it was vital that PBS continue to work as a strong and united party, and to not let anything divide or disrupt its momentum at the moment.
She said it was important that PBS remains strong and steadfast ahead of the 15th General Election.
Christina said the rural folk had always been a strong supporter of the government, and thus it was vital for leaders to focus on the needs of the people in the outskirts and rural areas in Sabah.
“With that, I wish to say that we support the resolutions brought up by the party president,” she said.
Among the resolutions presented were reaffirming PBS’ stand that it was against party hopping and will continue to reject party hoppers into its fold, to continue pushing for state rights under the Malaysia Agreement 1963 (MA63), protect the natives of Sabah and stop the influx of illegal immigrants as well as to spur development for the people and the state.
These were mentioned by PBS president Datuk Seri Dr Maximus Ongkili at the congress here on Thursday (June 30).
PBS Youth vice-chief Shahrun Nidzam Sharoom in his speech stated how members should always be dedicated and committed when carrying out their duties, and in whatever roles they might play in the government.
The party election continues till Thursday (June 30) evening with results expected later tonight.
