KOTA KINABALU: Parti Warisan Sabah (Warisan) deputy president Datuk Darell Leiking has expressed regrets and disappointment with certain political parties using race to achieve their mission.
The International Trade and Industry Minister said he is Kadazan, but he never made use of his origin for his political platform.
“Those people who still use race to achieve their political goals, I’m sorry for them,” he told reporters after attending the Malaysian Industrial Development Finance Berhad’s corporate social responsibility programme here.
Leiking, who is Penampang Member of Parliament, said as political parties in Sabah, it should be about uniting all the race and ethnic groups.
He was responding to an online news report,with the title ‘Post-GE: Sabah KDM still searching for unity” on the three main Kadazandusun Murut (KDM)-majority parties in Sabah, which are Upko, PBS and PBRS, uniting under one symbol.
