Bung leads Sabah Umno group in meeting with Anwar in Putrajaya

KOTA KINABALU: Sabah Umno paid a courtesy call to Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim at his office in Putrajaya on Wednesday (Nov 30) morning.

Its chief Datuk Seri Bung Moktar Radin said it was a general discussion on matters pertaining to Sabah and the state’s development needs.

“We spoke about issues facing Sabah and the needs of the state, among other political matters,” said Bung Moktar who declined to elaborate further when contacted.

Also in the meeting were Sabah Umno secretary Datuk Jafry Ariffin and former chief minister and Usukan assemblyman Datuk Seri Salleh Said Keruak.

Bung Moktar’s meeting comes after Anwar’s meeting with various leaders from Sabah.

On Sunday, the Pakatan Harapan chairman met up with Parti Warisan president Datuk Seri Mohd Shafie Apdal followed by Chief Minister and Gabungan Rakyat Sabah chairman Datuk Seri Hajiji Noor.

Hajiji was accompanied by GRS leaders including Deputy Chief Ministers Datuk Seri Dr Jeffrey Kitingan and Datuk Seri Dr Joachim Gunsalam as well as candidates who won in the recently-concluded general election.

Also present at the meeting were Sabah Pakatan MPs Datuk Ewon Benedick - who is the incoming Upko president - and Kota Kinabalu MP Chan Foong Hin.

Anwar, who was sworn in as Malaysia’s 10th Prime Minister on Nov 24, is widely speculated to name his Cabinet in the next two days after having a final round of consultations with presidents of parties supporting his unity government on Wednesday night (Nov 30).
