KOTA KINABALU: The Gabungan Rakyat Sabah (GRS) created history with the largest gathering of component party leaders at its inaugural Ceramah Perdana programme here last night.

GRS comprises Perikatan Nasional (PN), Barisan Nasional (BN) and Parti Bersatu Sabah (PBS).

The GRS leaders that came together at the event were Prime Minister cum Bersatu president Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin (pix), MCA president Datuk Seri Wee Ka Siong, Parti Solidariti Tanah Airku (STAR) president Datuk Dr Jeffrey Kitingan, Sabah Progressive Party (SAPP) president Datuk Yong Teck Lee, Sabah PN chairman Datuk Seri Hajiji Noor and PBS president Arthur Joseph Kurup.

Also present were UMNO vice-president Datuk Seri Mahdzir Khalid, PAS vice-president Senator Idris Ahmad, PAS secretary-general Datuk Takiyuddin Hassan, Bersatu secretary-general Datuk Seri Hamzah Zainuddin, Parti Bersatu Sabah (PBS) secretary-general Datuk Jahid Jahim and PN-Bersatu candidate for Petagas Datuk Seri Arsit Sedi.

Addressing the crowd and voters at the event, Jahid explained that GRS was formed following the preparedness of all the parties involved to work together to save Sabah.

He said during their first meeting with Muhyiddin, all party leaders agreed to offer an alternative government for Sabah, a stable government based on the performance showed by the PN-led federal government.

“We gathered here today in unity to offer the best service to save Sabah. This is very important and I saw the seriousness of these leaders that has brought us all here today,” he said. — Bernama
