KOTA KINABALU: Chief Minister Datuk Seri Shafie Apdal has stressed that holding both the Chief Minister and Finance Minister positions will not result in a conflict of interest.

“If you don’t have any interest in my position, why would you question…It does not mean if I sit as the Chief Minister, there would be a conflict of interest.

“What sort of interest do I have in mind? Don’t say that it’s similar with those guys previously (the former ministers). I am not going to do (follow) what has been done (by the former ministers) before,” the Parti Warisan Sabah president said during a press conference on Wednesday, held shortly after the swearing in of the new cabinet ministers.

“I am just going to lead the economy as an economist. I want to make sure that the financial putting of the state is on the right track,” Shafie said, adding that he would want the state economy to be vibrant and investor-friendly.
