Parti Keadilan Rakyat(PR:) vice president Datuk Dr Jeffrey Kitingan has described a recent call by former Chief Minister Tan Sri Chong Kah Kiat on the Chinese constituents to vote for the Barisan Nasional (BN) as confusing the people from the community. Chong knew that the State BN leaders are being sued by him for reasons well known by the people, he said referring to the sudden stop on the construction of the Goddess of the Sea or Mazu statue in Kudat. Jeffrey asserted that Chong also knew that the State BN Government has failed by not only making the State poor with the highest rate of poverty but caused the State indebted with more than RM1 billion. “During a press conference on Dec 30, 2002, Tan Sri Chong Kah Kiat said that the remaining State resources must be managed prudently so that Sabah’s economy could be turned around. “He also said then that we must get rid of all political hypocrites who have had their days,” he recalled.
