Pairin, 73, still wants Keningau and Tambunan seats

PENAMPANG: Parti Bersatu Sabah (PBS) president Joseph Pairin Kitingan said he would defend his Keningau parliamentary and Tambunan state seats in the 13th general election.

The Sabah Deputy Chief Minister who had been politically active since 1975 described his bids as his last battle to retain both constituencies for the Barisan Nasional in the interest of the people.

On the party’s other candidates, he indicated that there would be new faces in the line-up.

Pairin, who is the Huguan Siou or paramount chief of the Kadazandusun Murut community, urged the people to continue supporting the BN for the success of the Government Transformation Programme and Vision 2020 towards developed nation status.

“We know that the people would assess wisely and choose the BN rather than the opposition which is not united and cannot really be trusted,” he said at the launch of the Blue Wave and Sabah BN election machinery themed “Tatap BN” by Sabah Chief Minister Musa Aman last night.

In the 2008 general election, Pairin won the Keningau seat with a 4,264 majority over his younger brother Jeffrey Kitingan of PKR, and the Tambunan seat with a majority of 2,781 over Mozes Michael Iking also of PKR.
