KOTA KINABALU: A group of protestors gathered around the city here to urge the Yang di-Pertua Negeri to quickly name the new chief minister.
The group, Anak Muda, wants Tun Juhar Mahiruddin to carry out his duties to swear in the new state government following Gabungan Rakyat Sabah's victory in the recent state election.
A spokesman said the group did not mean to insult the Yang di-Pertua Negeri, but would like for him to quickly make a decision on who should lead the new state government.
"We have no government at the moment and the people are anxious, especially with the number of Covid-19 outbreaks," the spokesman said on Monday (Sept 28).
The group claimed to have about 100 members and were seen carrying placards urging the state governor to make the decision.
It is understood that the group gathered at around 2pm at several locations in the city, including Gaya Street, Padang Merdeka, Signal Hill and the Pillars of Sabah space.
However, checks at the locations at around 2.30pm showed the group had dispersed but police and other enforcers continued to keep watch around the venues.
Earlier, Gabungan Rakyat Sabah agreed to nominate Hajiji for chief minister post.
