Hiew should explain.

SAPP Information Chief, Chong Pit Fah said the party thanked Sabah DAP
secretary Dr Edwin Bosi and PKR Penampang Information Chief, Honorius
Bosuin for expressing support to SAPP on the issue unlike Sabah DAP
vice chairman, Edward Ewol Mujie and Kota Kinabalu MP Hiew King Cheu.
"SAPP believe this will lead to a greater understanding among the
opposition parties in Sabah towards achieving the common goal that is
to topple the Barisan Nasional (BN) government," he said here Friday.
Chong said that while SAPP had taken the initiative to discuss with the
Pakatan Rakyat in Sabah, there were still some issues that needed to be
ironed out between them.
Hence, the support expressed openly to SAPP on the signboard matter is
seen as crucial in order to achieve the target of one-on-one fight
between the BN and the opposition in the 13th General Election, he
Meanwhile, Chong said Bosi had stated that the statement by Mujie
criticising SAPP President Datuk Yong Teck Lee was not the stand of
Sabah DAP but a personal opinion of Mujie as the former Kota Kinabalu
Municipal Council secretary who insisted that the signboard could be
taken down "serta merta".
While Bosuin had asked Mujie to stop attacking fellow opposition in
Sabah especially SAPP since they have the common objective that is to
topple the BN government.
"We want to ask Mujie and Hiew what is their stand on other signboards
that also contain the word Bersih in Pakatan-held states in Semenanjung.
Does this mean they are saying that those signboards including in
Penang, which is led by their Secretary General Lim Guan Eng could also
be taken down immediately?" he asked.
