Yesterday ex-PKR vice-president Datuk Dr Jeffrey Kitingan was all set to announce the formation of his new political party - One Nation Party (Parti Satu Negara) Parti Iso Pogun)

But he deferred it to another day pending further development in the Opposition party, in particular, actions by Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim on the party's leadership issue in Sabah.

"PKR national leader wanted me to consider or postpone ditching PKR, they called on me and supporters to continue to be in PKR fold's." he told a gathering of PKR local leaders at the Tambunan Village Recreation Club in Tambunan on Nov 5, 2009.

However, he said whatever will be his next move, it would very much depend on the wishes of his die-hard supporters in Sabah. More than 200 PKR leaders, among them divisional and branch heads, attended the gathering.

A close aide to Dr Jeffrey, the younger brother of Sabah Deputy Chief Minister Datuk Seri Joseph Pairin Kitingan, said the new political party, now has a big following, mostly those who followed him to join PKR.
