Parti Bersatu Sabah (PBS) president Datuk Seri Joseph Pairin Kitingan had been asked by the party's divisional chief for Kiulu Sindin Ranggangon to step down from the post which he had held since the party's formation 23 years ago.
Sindin said Pairin, who is Sabah Deputy Chief Minister, should retired and let someone who is more energy, calibre and charisma took over the party leadership.
He said the most appropriate leader to take over from Pairin has to be Deputy President Datuk Dr Maximus Ongkili.
"Pairin's leadership is no longer effective because he practised favouritism and had failed to take into consideration the people's sensitivity," Sindin said, adding that this was the general consensus among the Kiulu division committee and party's members during a meeting recently.
Sindin said PBS would meet the same fate as MIC, MCA and Gerakan in the next election if Pairin refused to resign.
What do the other PBS divisions has to say about this?
