“It (Sabah Chief Minister Post) should be changed to at least two terms, and after that, the leader would no longer be eligible to hold office,”

UPKO Keningau head Datuk Justin Guka


“We can have a round table discussion on suggestions and opinions raised by all BN component parties,”

Chief Minister Datuk Seri Musa Aman


“This type of statement has been cropping every now and then in Sabah, and I was not shocked. This is what democracy is all about — the people are free to express themselves,”

“I was there when the matter was raised. So, we in the leadership of Upko will have to digest what have been
presented by the divisions.

“The conventions are still ongoing, so there will be a lot of other issues raised. We will later have a national Upko convention where the leaderships would respond on each issue,”

“For now, we will wait for all resolutions to come up, it is good for us to listen to everybody, there is nothing wrong to listen to suggestions from the people.”

Upko president Tan Sri Bernard Dompok


The young generation of UPKO are hoping that Datuk Seri Najib will renew the BN commitment towards a more practical and balanced power sharing by reintroducing CM rotation and for Umno to contest not more than half of the seats in election,”

“They vote for a candidate or a party not just because of the policy or contribution made by that particular candidate or party, but also the level of integrity in implementing the commitment you made,”

“As BN leaders, we must aware that the rakyat of Sabah have long evaluated whether BN manifestos and commitments were fulfilled, not just since Datuk Seri Najib took over as Prime Minister, but since BN took over Sabah government in 1994,”

“We in UPKO appreciate the ‘advice’ by Datuk Raymond Tan, but as rakyat Sabah, we would like to hear your stand whether you are happy with the present implementation of power sharing, and whether you agree that UMNO should contest more than half of the seats in Sabah,”

“I have a lot of branches under my care, and some may come up with weird and various requests, but I believe that it is important to talk to the top leadership before bringing matters to the Barisan Nasional straight,”

“I do not know whether this is the party’s stand or just the branch-level view … so I would not like to comment further; I will just give them advice for now,

Gerakan vice president Datuk Raymond Tan Shu Kiah


“There has been a lot of debate on this issue but I think it should not be like the last time. Two-year rotation system is just a waste of time, you can’t hardly do anything in such short period of time,”

“It is always not good when one leader stays for too long, it is unhealthy. Maybe this is a way to prevent this, but there could also be other ways.

“Whatever it is, at the end of the day it is up to the BN leadership to decide what is the best way,”

Liberal Democratic Party (LDP) Youth chief Chin Shu Ying


“So officially I do not know the members’ stand. However, my personal opinion is that the said proposal should be put forward for the members to debate and come to a conclusion,”

“As a KDM (KadazanDusun Murut), I agree with Keningau’s idea, but if it is accepted, the term should be for five years or the state assembly term. This is to allow the CM during the said term to successfully implement his development agenda for the state and rakyat,”

UPKO Tawau chairman, Sylvester S Taing
