PBS Wants Top Kadazandusun, Murut Civil Servants
Considered For Mayor's Post
KOTA KINABALU, Jan 22 (Bernama) -- Parti
Bersatu Sabah (PBS) secretary general Datuk Henrynus Amin
is confident that top Kadazandusun and Murut civil servants,
including those categorised as Sino-Natives, Muslim or Non
Muslim, would also be considered for the post of mayor of
He said that late last year, PBS had given its views in
writing to the top Barisan Nasional (BN) leadership on the
general issue of power sharing within BN to reflect the
multi-ethnic character of the state.
Henrynus refuted opposition accusations that PBS had not
been vocal on the issue of power sharing or that the BN
government was not listening to the people's grievances.
"PBS is a responsible member of the state BN coalition
government and would not fall into the opposition trap of
politicising the mayor's appointment," he said in a
statement on Saturday.
He said Sabah Chief Minister Datuk Musa Aman, who is also
state BN chairman, had assured PBS of his firm commitment
to listen to the grievances of component political parties.
Meanwhile, Henrynus commended the current mayor over a
job well done during his tenure.
