The opposition Sabah Progressive Party (SAPP) Deputy President Datuk Eric Majimbun wished former members Datuk Raymond Tan and Au Kam Wah success in their new party, Gerakan.
"I congratulate and wish them success...their political struggles are different from SAPP which is more on the interests of Sabah and its people, and without any self-interest," Majimbun, said. On another development, Eric who is Sepanggar Member of Parliament, urged the Federal Government to be flexible with regard to the requirements of any vacancy available in the public sector in Sabah.
He said this is because he had received a complaint from a successful applicant here who has been asked to report for duty as a government general administration clerk (Grade N27) at Putrajaya in Kuala Lumpur, although the vacancy is supposedly in Sabah.
It was advertised online through the Public Services Department (PSD) website which showed there were 400 vacancies available under this particular grade in Sabah, he said, adding that the successful applicants were however required to fly over and report for duty at Putrajaya.
"I just cannot understand it. Why when the vacancies are available in Sabah they are asked to go and report for duty in Putrajaya ... this is like an attempt to discourage our people in Sabah to work in the public sector, even in their own State," he said.
