    Sabah PKR chief quits party to join Umno

    KUALA LUMPUR, Feb 5 — Newly-appointed Sabah PKR chief Pajudin Nordin resigned from the party today and announced his intention to join Umno.

    The unpopular Tuaran division vice-chief made the announcement in Kota Kinabalu with Sabah Chief Minister Datuk Seri Musa Aman.

    Since his appointment on January 10, Pajudin has been facing fierce opposition from other Sabah division chiefs who disagreed with his selection.

    “I have lost confidence in the leadership of PKR,” he said when announcing his resignation.

    Pajudin also said he was disappointed with the party’s leadership for not backing up his appointment, saying that Kuala Lumpur has been unable to handle objections from certain local leaders.

    Late last month, 18 of the state’s 25 division leaders demanded the intervention of the central leadership to reconsider Pajudin’s appointment.

    Pajudin also failed to convene the state committee meeting one week after his appointment after division leaders were caught in verbal argument, causing the meeting to be disrupted.

    “This is shocking. I have never expected him to leave,” said Tenom PKR chief Datuk Halik Zaman.

    PKR president Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail is currently in Sabah to attempt to resolve the state leadership crisis.

    The Sabah PKR has never won a seat in the state and has been in turmoil for years largely because of the existence of three major factions that have been seeking to dominate the state leadership.

    A faction led by Datuk Dr Jeffrey Kitingan has left the party to form the United Borneo Front. Kitingan has been influential in opposing the appointment of party deputy president Azmin Ali as the Sabah PKR chief in 2009.

    Azmin was later replaced by local leader Ahmad Thamrin Jaini who leads another faction.

    Pajudin, who was initially not on the list of potential candidates to lead Sabah PKR, was seen as a proxy of a leader of another faction, Ansari Abdullah, who heads the PKR Tuaran division.

    Ansari was the Sabah PKR chief before the appointment of Azmin as the state chairman. Party de facto leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim had also held the post of Sabah PKR chief in an attempt to bring the different factions together. TheMalaysiaInsider.... Sabah PKR Chief Quits.

    KUALA LUMPUR, Feb 6 — PKR president Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Ismail has announced the formation of a presidential council to run the party’s Sabah chapter, following the resignation of its state chief yesterday.


    Dr Wan Azizah said this after chairing a three-hour meeting of the state leadership council in Kota Kinabalu today.

    “The leadership of PKR’s divisions in Sabah had reached a consensus with the central leadership council to set up an 11-member presidential council to lead PKR Sabah effective from today,” said Dr Wan Azizah in a statement issued after the meeting.

    “This interim measure is put in place to bring about a concerted effort to focus PKR Sabah’s resources and work on setting up a fair agenda for the people of Sabah, in light of the expected 13th general election due to be called within months,” she added. Dr Wan Azizah, however, did not name the members of the council but said they would be announced soon.

    “The functions and responsibilities of the presidential council are mapped to the issues that are of major importance to the people of Sabah and are partly designed to match the state Cabinet, in order to provide the focus and early training for our state leaders to press [for] accountability [from] the present state government and develop the skills and acumen necessary to bring about change in the state,” she continued.

    “My focus in this interim period is to put in place the necessary organisational structure to allow PKR Sabah to function as a formidable champion of the people of Sabah,” said Dr Wan Azizah.

    Sabah PKR chief Pajudin Nordin quit the party for Umno yesterday, citing loss of confidence in the party’s national leadership.

    He had been appointed to the post on January 10, and was the latest to have taken up the hot seat over the past year.

    Pajudin had been facing fierce opposition from other Sabah division chiefs who had disagreed with his selection.

    Late last month, 18 of the state’s 25 division leaders demanded the intervention of the central leadership in reconsidering Pajudin’s appointment.

    Pajudin also failed to successfully convene the state committee meeting one week after his appointment, when it was repeatedly disrupted by division leaders caught in verbal exchanges.

    Sabah PKR has never won a seat in the state and has been in turmoil for years largely because of the existence of three major factions vying for the state leadership.

    Today, Dr Wan Azizah promised an end to the protracted leadership crisis and said the presidential council would present the Sabah PKR election manifesto at its convention scheduled for the end of March.

    She also said an organising secretariat would be formed to co-ordinate the party activities prior to the state convention.

    “Thus, PKR Sabah’s focus shall be on the welfare of the people, with [a] two-prong approach of promoting new policies to eradicate poverty and improving the living standards of Sabahans, while keeping the present state government accountable to the public,” said the PKR president.
