PETALING JAYA: Two new leaders of Sabah-based parties Upko and PBRS are set to strike a collaboration to develop the state.

Upko president Ewon Benedick and PBRS president Arthur Joseph Kurup are to visit each other’s parliamentary constituencies. Ewon will visit Pensiangan at the end of the month while Arthur will visit the Kadamaian state constituency the following month.

“We both hope to inspire unity and togetherness among the people of Sabah so that there will be more focus on the welfare and development of the people and their constituencies, not just politicking all the time,” said Ewon.

Ewon took over as Upko president from Wilfred Madius Tangau yesterday, while Arthur became PBRS president after his father Joseph announced his retirement from politics on Jan 7.

Both are members of the unity government, Ewon as entrepreneur development and cooperatives minister and Arthur a deputy science, technology and innovation minister.

Upko is a member of Pakatan Harapan while PBRS is part of Barisan Nasional.
