Last Update: 17/05/2019

KOTA KINABALU, May 17 (Bernama) -- Newly appointed Sabah Youth and Sports Minister Phoong Jin Zhe is in a hurry to execute his responsibilities.

"No time for celebration, honeymoon. I only have four years in this term to carry out what I have been entrusted to do. I need to understand the ministry in order to implement the policies for the benefit of youth and sports in the state,” he told a media conference here today.

Phoong, 30, who is also Luyang assemblyman thanked Chief Minister Datuk Seri Mohd Shafie Apdal for his confidence and the DAP state leadership for proposing his name for the post.

He takes over from DAP Sabah acting chairman and Tanjung Papat assemblyman Datuk Frankie Poon Ming Fung, who has been appointed as state Health and Wellbeing Minister to fill the vacancy following the death of DAP Sabah chairman Datuk Stephen Wong Tien Fatt.
