Parti Solidariti Tanah Airku (STAR) president Datuk Seri Dr Jeffrey Kitingan said the party is leaving Perikatan Nasional, and an official announcement on the matter will be made soon.
The Sabah deputy chief minister said this was due to STAR’s support for the unity government.
“Yes (we are leaving PN), let’s wait for the announcement. If you go in this direction and I go in that direction, then we’re not aligned,” he told reporters in Kota Kinabalu earlier today.
On Nov 26, Jeffrey said STAR had taken the same stand as Gabungan Rakyat Sabah (GRS) to support the unity government.
As such, he said PN was now on a different track compared with STAR.
GRS, comprising Bersatu, Parti Bersatu Sabah, STAR, Sabah Progressive Party and United Sabah National Organisation, is cooperating with Barisan Nasional, which is made up of Umno, MCA, MIC and Parti Bersatu Rakyat Sabah, to govern over Sabah.
