Kota Kinabalu: Datuk Dr Jeffrey Kitingan said he is not aware of an application submitted to the Registrar of Societies (RoS) here to register a new party on his behalf.
"Probably it was done by some of my men who could not wait...but personally I don't know about it because I am still on leave until January," he told Daily Express. He was asked for comment on a report Friday stating that an application for a new party linked to him was submitted to the RoS on Thursday.
It was learnt that the application for Parti Cinta Sabah or (Love Sabah Party) was submitted by a Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) Sabah leader who is in Dr Jeffrey's camp.
Dr Jeffrey said as far as he was concerned they are still waiting for a solution to the party's problem in Sabah and Sarawak.
"There is a solution to this problem in Sabah and Sarawak about which we expect an announcement to be made soon," he said.
Jeffrey fell out with the leadership of PKR due to their choice of the PKR Sabah liaison chairman, which resulted in him relinquishing his post as a Vice President and other important posts.
However, the party did not accept the resignations, including that of his colleague Christina Liew, who is also the party's former State deputy chairperson. Liew, when contacted earlier, also said she was not aware about any new party and that as far as she is concerned they are still with PKR.
