Junz Wong A sighting of Likas assemblyman Junz Wong having lunch with former Umno vice president Shafie Apdal has added fuel to speculation that Wong would join Shafie’s new party.

Wong declined to say whether he would be joining Shafie. “I will make an announcement on the matter soon,” he said when contacted.

His resignation from the DAP, where he was the party’s Sabah secretary, came in a flurry of departures from DAP and PKR, which started with Penampang MP Darell Leiking’s exit from PKR.

Leiking resigned as PKR vice-president to be Shafie’s deputy in an unnamed party which the pair “took over” last month.

12Speculations about Wong’s plans are now going into overdrive after he was seen having lunch with Shafie at a restaurant in Kota Kinabalu.

Also at the lunch were Leiking and Moyog assemblyman Terrence Siambun, formerly of PKR and former Sabah DAP vice-chairman George Hiew.

Others who have resigned last week were Sabah PKR Chief and Klias assemblyman Lajim Ukin, Sabah PKR Secretary General Maijol Mahap, Sabah PKR Wanita Chief Johair Matlani and Sabah DAP Treasurer David Williams.
