KOTA KINABALU (Bernama): All Parti Warisan Sabah elected representatives who left the party in favour of former Sabah chief minister Tan Sri Musa Aman are deemed to have ‘sacked’ themselves from the party and as such, no further action will be taken.

Warisan secretary-ceneral Loretto Padua (pic) said in accordance with the party’s constitution, the assemblymen concerned had their membership automatically cancelled when they joined other political organisations.

"In this case, they were deemed to have joined Musa and his plot to overthrow the Warisan-led state government.

"They were all seen at Musa’s house and none of them have denied their involvement, ” he said in a statement here on Friday (July 31).

Padua said according to Article 3.3 of Warisan's constitution, membership ceases with immediate effect when one "joins or becomes a member of any other political party in the country”.

"Warisan has no intention whatsoever of taking back these rebels. They have burned bridges with the party and we wish them the best in their future endeavours, ” he said.

On Wednesday (July 29), Musa said he had obtained a simple majority to overthrow the Warisan-led state government and form a new state government. – Bernama
