Labuan: Vice President Parti Warisan Sabah Junz Wong announced that Warisan would place a candidate to contest the Labuan Parliamentary seat in an attempt to return Labuan back to Sabah, at Warisan's first maiden dialogue programme in Sara Hotel here, Monday."I believe many Labuanites, though being given away to the Federal, still feel that Labuan should belong to Sabah and they still feel Sabahans. After so many years of being made a federal territory, what has Labuan gained?

"A promise of a bridge for Labuan to boost economic development also remains a fairy tale after so many years of numerous announcements made by various BN leaders," he said.

Wong added that with the implementation of the Goods and Services Tax (GST), gloomy oil and gas industry and dying Sabah shipyard industry, Labuan has practically become a ghost town.

Wong who is also Likas Assemblyman called on all people of Labuan to rally behind Warisan in an attempt to fight for Labuan to be returned to Sabah.

"People of Labuan are fed up with BN but they have little options. With Warisan now, the political scenario has changed for voters of Labuan. They can now unite under Warisan to fight to return Labuan back to Sabah.

"If you were to ask Labuanites whether they feel more Sabahans or Malayans, most will say Sabahans," he said.

He said that Warisan has set bases in Labuan, and will form few more branches and set up machinery soon.

Wong added that the party is committed to bring back the glorious days just like the Labuan which used to be part of Sabah back in the 70s and 80s.

"If you still feel as a Sabahan and believe strongly that Labuan should be part of Sabah, unite as Sabahans under Warisan for our cause," he said.
