Large following in Sabah not a threat to Warisan - Bersatu sec-gen



Sabah Bersatu already attracting more than 120,000 members is not a threat to Parti Warisan Sabah, said Bersatu secretary-general Marzuki Yahya.

Instead, Marzuki, who is also deputy foreign minister, said Bersatu spreading its wings to Sabah was only to strengthen Pakatan Harapan at the federal level.

"We are not seen as a threat (to Warisan) because, in Harapan, any component that increases its strength automatically strengthens Harapan as a whole.

"We welcome more to join us in Sabah, Bersatu can be their platform for their aspirations,” he told reporters after launching a book on a collection of poems titled "Mahathir, Kami Bersamamu" (English translation: Mahathir, We Are With You) which were compiled by literary figure Lim Swee Tin, in conjunction with the Kuala Lumpur International Book Fair, at the Putra World Trade Centre today.

Prime Minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad, who is also Bersatu chairperson, officially launched Sabah Bersatu in Penampang yesterday. 

Sulaman assemblyperson Hajiji Mohd Noor was named as Sabah Bersatu coordinator.
