KOTA KINABALU: Tan Sri Musa Aman is maintaining that he is still the rightful Sabah Chief Minister.
In a statement by his press secretary Afeiza Khan to clarify his stance, she also clarified that Musa has not resigned.
This is despite Parti Warisan Sabah president Datuk Seri Mohd Shafie Apdal being sworn-in on Saturday (May 12) at the Istana Negeri by Yang di-Pertua Negeri Tun Juhar Mahiruddin.
"Please note that nothing has changed.
"Musa has not resigned. He is still the rightful Chief Minister," said the Sunday (May 13) statement in full.
Meanwhile, Shafie during a press conference at his private residence in Taman Golfview here on Sunday (May 13), said that Musa should tender his resignation.
He also said there was no such thing as Sabah having two Chief Ministers or a constitutional crisis as Shafie was installed legitimately, but said that Musa could challenge his position in court if he was unhappy.
Shafie said once Juhar had confidence that Warisan and its partners Upko, PKR and DAP had enough seats to form the state government, Juhar had called Musa, who was sworn in as Chief Minister on Thursday (May 10) to ask for his resignation.
Musa did not step down and insisted that he is the Chief Minister, even chairing the state Cabinet meeting after meeting with Juhar on Saturday (May 12) morning.
Meanwhile later that night at Sri Gaya, shortly before Shafie was sworn in at 9pm, the official residence of the Chief Minister, the official guards on duty confirmed on that Musa had packed up his things.
