Liew has no problem being replaced as Sabah PKR chief

KOTA KINABALU: Sabah Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) has a new chief, and outgoing chairman Datuk Christina Liew has no issue with it.

The decision to oust Liew and replace her with Datuk Dr Sangkar Rasam, the Keningau division chief, was made during a meeting with all Sabah PKR division leaders and Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim on Saturday (Aug 6).

“I accept this decision. We will all unite to face the coming general election,” Liew said when contacted.

“Demi rakyat, demi party (For the people, for the party),” she said.

She said personal feelings and wishes were not important but winning seats for the party was.

In a statement issued by Anwar, he announced that Sangkar will be the Sabah PKR state leadership council (MPN) chairman for the 2022-2025 period.

He said Sangkar will be carrying out his duties together with vice-president Awang Suhaini Sahari and Liew, who is also Sabah Pakatan Harapan chairman.

“Hopefully, this team will see a stronger Sabah PKR in time for GE15,” said Anwar in the statement.

Sabah PKR held their party polls over a period of a few days in May this year.
