PCS accepted into Sabah ruling coalition govt

KOTA KINABALU: Parti Cinta Sabah (PCS) led by Senator Tan Sri Anifah Aman has been accepted into the ruling state Gabungan Rakyat Sabah (GRS) coalition government.

GRS secretary-general Datuk Seri Masidi Manjun said PCS was accepted as the eighth party in the coalition with the unanimous agreement of all other party presidents.

He noted that as a local party, and PCS’ entry into the state coalition, it would further strengthen political solidarity and unity in the state.

“We believe with the strengthened cooperation, we will be able to work together to develop the state and face challenges,” Masidi said.

The other parties in GRS are Parti Gagasan Rakyat Sabah led by Datuk Seri Hajiji Noor, Parti Bersatu Sabah (PBS) led by Datuk Seri Dr Maximus Ongkili, Sabah Star led by Datuk Seri Dr Jeffrey Kitingan, Sabah Progressive Party (SAPP) under Datuk Seri Yong Teck Lee, Usno led by Tan Sri Pandikar Amin Mulia, Liberal Democratic Party (LDP) led by Datuk Chin Su Phin and Parti Harapan Rakyat Sabah by Tan Sri Liew Yun Fah.

Meanwhile, Anifah expressed gratitude to Hajiji, who is the coalition chairman, and its leaders for accepting PCS into the GRS family.

“As the saying goes, a family that eats together, stays together.

“On this common table, PCS shares the same vision and mission with GRS for Sabah and her people.

“After all, we are a local Sabah party and naturally, we see a home in GRS, which is a truly local entity that Sabahans have long envisioned for,” he said.

Anifah said the party shared GRS’ commitment to strengthen Sabah’s push for local agendas on the national, regional and international levels.

“It is our responsibility to place the fight for the state’s interests as our number one priority,” said Anifah, who took over the PCS leadership four years ago.

The party contested all 73 state seats in the September 2020 snap state election but did not win any seat.
