Sindin quits, dissolves division
Sindin Ranggangon, who had called on Parti Bersatu Sabah (PBS) Datuk Seri Joseph Pairin Kitingan (Pix) to step down, had quit the party Saturday. Some 3,000 members of the party in the Kiulu Division followed him.
"We had also dissolved the Kiulu PBS Division," he said Monday. He had been called up by PBS disciplinary committee to explain his action against Pairin but no decision was made apart from issuing him a show cause letter.
Sindin headed the division after defeating the Kiulu Assemblyman Datuk Louis Rampas during the party's last election.
Sindin said he was seriously considering joining the opposition party - Party Keadilan Rakyat (PKR).
Responding to Sindin, Rampas said he respected his decision to resign from the party. "Now it look like I have to start all over again, fillng up membership forms," he said.
