KOTA KINABALU, SABAH – Sabah Perikatan Nasional (PN) is considering adding Liberal Democratic Party (LDP) into the mix in line with Gabungan Rakyat Sabah’s (GRS) commitment to see unification of the people.
Chief Minister Datuk Seri Hajiji Noor said his side is open to LDP’s petition yesterday.
“We want to create oneness of the people through parties who accept the struggles of GRS,” Hajiji, who is also Sabah PN chairman said.
LDP president Datuk Chin Su Phin meanwhile said the decision was made after observing the effort and success of Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin in helping the people throughout the Covid-19 pandemic.
LDP established in 1989, was a Barisan Nasional component party but stood as an independent during the 2018 General Elections.
In the more recent 16th Sabah State Elections (2020), LDP contested in 40 constituencies but won none.
In the golden days of Barisan the party managed to wrest the Sandakan parliamentary and a few seats namely Tanjung Kapor, Merotai and Karamunting.
