Sabah-based Barisan Nasional component party member, Parti Bersatu Rakyat Sabah (PBRS) is not happy that Chief Minister Datuk Seri Musa Haji Aman did not appoint a leader from the Kadazandusun and Murut community as a minister in the Sabah State Cabinet.
PBRS information chief Rayner Francis Udong said the recent cabinet reshuffle was the best opportunity for Musa, who is Sabah BN chairman, to correct the lopsided Cabinet line-up. He said the party regretted that the Chief Minister did not take the opportunity for that purpose.
Udong said the expected composition of the State Cabinet was 5-3-2, five ministers from the Muslim Bumiputera quote, three from non-Muslim Bumiputera and two for the Chinese community.
The non-Muslim Bumiputera quote is now represented by Deputy Chief Minister Datuk Seri Joseph Pairin Kitingan from Parti Bersatu Sabah and Rural Development Minister Datuk Dr Ewon Ebin from UPKO.
