Malay:Cracks appearing in Sabah Umno?

KUDAT: Speculation is high that former deputy chief minister under a PBS-plus government, Amir Kahar Mustapha, is about to quit Umno and join an opposition group.
The former Banggi assemblyman, who is the eldest son of ex- Sabah chief minister, the late Tun Mustapha Harun, is said to have been approached by the members of the Suluk community here to represent them in the opposition in the coming election.
Sources said there had been calls for Amir Kahar to stand again in Banggi which is currently represented by Umno’s Mijul Unaini.
“We may join a party soon if everything is alright,” a source said, adding that they preferred a local party as vehicle but have not ruled out a national party.
Sources close to the politician also said that apart from Banggi, four other state seats and one parliamentary constituency in the west coast – Tanjung Kapur, Karambunai, Likas, Tanjung Aru and Sepanggar respectively – are being eyed by those in his circle.
