BEAUFORT, Jan 4 — Parti Warisan Sabah (Warisan) is confident that with the cooperation of the United Progressive People of Kinabalu Organisation (UPKO) and Pakatan Harapan (PH), the party will win at the Kimanis parliamentary by-election this January 18.

Warisan president Datuk Shafie Apdal said the coalition’s formula had been proven earlier, especially during the Sandakan by-election on May 11, 2019 and the 14th general election (GE14).

“(We) should not be complacent or arrogant in our ways (when campaigning). (What’s important) we need to be confident in bringing change to Sabah and we will do it well.

“I am confident that the cooperation from all PH component parties, Bersatu, PKR, DAP and Amanah will be translated (to victory),” said the Sabah Chief Minister at a press conference following the nomination for the Kimanis by-election here today.

Warisan is PH’s political ally along with another local party, UPKO.
