TAWAU: The United Borneo Front (UBF) is welcome to use Sabah Progressive Party (SAPP) as a vehicle to contest in the 13th general election as both parties share the same struggle.
SAPP vice president Datuk Chua Soon Bui said UBF is a non-governmental organisation and both parties already had a lot of dialogues and organised seminars on whether they are sharing the same mission and vision for the whole of Sabah, including the autonomy of Sabah.
"And we found out that we are very close along that mission and vision," she said yesterday.
"So if UBF want to use SAPP as a vehicle, they are always welcome and if they want to register a new political vehicle based on our struggle and principles, we also give our blessing," she said.
On whether SAPP and UBF will be a strong combination, Chua said Pakatan Rakyat (PR) also had their goal to achieve.
"We also hope eventually we can reach an agreement among all these political players. We don't want Sabah-based political parties to be marginalised and we hope eventually the negotiation is still open for one-to-one contest because it is the people's interest that is important," she added.
Chua pointed out a win by SAPP is also a victory for UBF because both share the same struggle, likewise a SAPP's victory is also a PR's win because of their common goal.
