I WOULD have thought that the promoters of STAR have studied and scrutinized all angles, especially for any legalloopholes.
With regard to its expansion to Sabah, knowing the possibilities of being hindered by the authorities. Iím referring to yesterday Daily Express report.
People in Sabah have beenjeopardised with unfair treatment. Why is it so difficult to get approval to form political party in Sabah? Particularly if application comes from localprominent and more so if one is Muslim in Sabah. This is where I donít see that USNO is going to be registered in so long as UMNO is kicking in Sabah.
The multiracial community has been flourishing Sabah right from immemorial day which Ifound not so in many State in Malaysia. We are proud of this tradition.
This where I get furious easily when people and other opposition political party members whopush us to the limit by saying SAPP is Chinese politicalparty. I think SAPP leaders have every right to make their voice heard that SAPP is a non racial political party which can be seen in the partyĎs constitution right from its inception.
We reemphasisethis multiracial outlook after SAPP pulled out of BN, where now no single race dominates other races in the party supreme council. I donít see in any other political parties in Sabah that have this make up.
I hope leaders of Sabah STAR would continue to finding ways to overcome this problem, we must fight this unjust system.
