Latest: Rough translation from Bahasa Malaysia. Better translation to follow:

TAMPARULI, Feb 18 - Former Federal Deputy Minister Datuk Kalakau Untol, today announced the resignation of his government-linked companies and his membership in the Barisan Nasional (BN).

Beliau mengumumkan pelepasan jawatan sebagai Pengerusi Superpanel (Sabah) Sdn Bhd, sebuah subsidiari milik penuh Lembaga Pembangunan Perumahan Bandar (LPPB) serta sebagai ahli Lembaga Pengarah Perbadanan Pembangunan Ekonomi Sabah (Sedco), di dalam satu sidang akhbar di sini. He announced the release position as Chairman Superpanel (Sabah) Sdn Bhd, a wholly owned subsidiary of City Housing Development Board (LPPB) and as a member of the Board of Directors of Sabah Economic Development Corporation (Sedco), in a press conference here.

Kalakau, 55, pernah berkhidmat sebagai Timbalan Menteri Buruh pada tahun 1986 hingga 1990 dan merupakan Ketua Pemuda Pertubuhan Pasokmomogun Kadazandusun Murut Bersatu (Upko) negeri selama 12 tahun sejak 1985. Kalakau, 55, had served as Deputy Minister of Labor in 1986 to 1990 and is Head of Youth Organizations Pasokmomogun Kadazandusun Murut Bersatu (Upko) state for 12 years since 1985.

Dengan peletakan jawatan dan keanggotaan dalam BN tersebut, beliau juga mengumumkan keputusan untuk melibatkan diri dan menyokong dasar-dasar kumpulan pembangkang Pakatan Rakyat, seterusnya membantu mereka menyebarkan penjelasan ke seluruh negeri dalam usaha merakyatkan dasar Pakatan Rakyat untuk mendepani pilihan raya umum ke-13. With the resignation, and membership in the BN, he also announced the decision to engage and support the policies of Pakatan Rakyat opposition group, thus helping them spread throughout the land clearing business in the People's Alliance for merakyatkan policy mendepani general election-13.

Kalakau menjelaskan walaupun pemimpin-pemimpin dari Sabah dari dulu sehingga sekarang telah melakukan yang terbaik untuk mempertahankan hak-hak negeri Sabah, namun pucuk pimpinan negara dan sebilangan pemimpin Persekutuan nampaknya tidak begitu serius dan komited dengan saranan dan tuntutan-tuntutan para wakil rakyat dari Sabah dan pihak kerajaan negeri Sabah sendiri. Kalakau explain even the leaders of Sabah from the first until now have been doing our best to defend the rights of Sabah, but the leadership of the Federation and a number of leaders seem not so serious and committed to the recommendations and demands of elected representatives from Sabah and Sabah state government itself. — Bernama - Bernama
