DAP National Advisor, Lim Kit Siang has never weaver in his promise to come to Sabah and drum up support and to intensify the already moving whirlwind for change. The Batu Sapi by-election on 4th November has unravelled the strength of the whirlwind.
BN has lost in the Chinese-dominated Karamunting constituency. In Sekong the Muslims continue to support BN and implied that PKR and PAS will have to work harder to bring the whirlwind to this community. Pakatan Rakyat needs to realize the shortcomings of Batu Sapi and must now work closely with each other to bring about tangible change to the political landscape of Sabah.
In view of this two 'Majlis Pakatan Rakyat' were organised in Kota Belud and Kudat on 19th November 2010 graced by Lim Kit Siang and YB Teo Nie Ching (MP for Serdang). The afternoon lunch talks brought together the leaders of Pakatan Rakyat in the Kota Belud parliamentary constituency. The dinner talks in Kudat were also well attended by leaders from Pakatan Rakyat, a very positive sign in the consolidation of the Pakatan Rakyat in Sabah.
