The launching of Bersatu in Sabah will be held on April 6 at Padang Merdeka in Kota Kinabalu.
Prime Minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad, who is also Bersatu chairperson, is expected to launch it in the presence of other top leaders of the party.
Sulaman assemblyperson Hajiji Noor confirmed this after a photo of him together with Bersatu president Muhyiddin Yassin went viral on social media.
”Yes, it’s true. Tun M will launch it. Bersatu president Muhyiddin, Mukhriz (Mahathir) and other top party leaders will also be attending,” he said when contacted today.
However, Hajiji did not comment on his position as the Sabah Bersatu de facto chief, except saying that the matter would officially be announced by the party’s top leaders.
Recently, the Hajiji Liker Facebook account uploaded a photo of Hajiji and Karanaan assemblyperson Masidi Manjun together with Muhyiddin and some other individuals, believed taken in Kuala Lumpur after attending a meeting on the launching of Sabah Bersatu.
The posting also stated Hajiji as the Sabah Bersatu protem committee chairperson.
On Feb 15, Mahathir announced that Bersatu would be expanding its wings to Sabah following the decision made at a meeting of the party’s top leaders.
