KOTA KINABALU, Aug 18 — The Sabah-based United Progressive Kinabalu Organisation has thrown the backing of its sole parliamentarian behind PKR president Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim in his bid to be the prime minister.

Upko secretary-general Nelson Anggang said his party has always been consistent in its support for the Pakatan Harapan Opposition leader.

“Our president Datuk Seri Wilfred Madius Tangau, who is also the Tuaran MP, has submitted his statutory declaration to the Istana confirming his support to YB Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim,” he said in a short statement here.

Upko’s vote is one among an expected 105 from the Opposition bloc, which currently includes Pejuang’s four MPs.
