KUDAT Independent MP Verdon Bahanda today confirmed his support for the unity government led by Prime Minister Anwar Ibrahim.

He said he respected the decree of Yang di-Pertuan Agong Al-Sultan Abdullah Ri’ayatuddin Al-Mustafa Billah Shah, who appointed Anwar as the country’s 10th prime minister.

“Thank you so much to the people of the Kudat parliamentary constituency for your trust in me in GE15 (15th general election) and as I promised during my campaigning, Kudat will continue to support the government,” he said in a statement today.

“This is for the good of the parliamentary constituency so that we are not left behind in development as well as to make this constituency great and on a par with other areas.”

He said he met Anwar in Putrajaya yesterday, together with Parti Kesejahteraan Demokratik Masyarakat (KDM) president Peter Anthony, deputy president Wetrom Bahanda, who is also the Kota Marudu MP, and Tenom MP Riduan Rubin, who is an Independent MP.

On Thursday, Peter reportedly said KDM respected the king’s order for a unity government to be established for the sake of national stability and well-being of Malaysians. – Bernama, November 26, 2022.
