Question mark on when new Sabah CM swearing-in will take place

Datuk Seri Bung Moktar Radin

KOTA KINABALU: Despite Istana Negeri setting the date for the swearing-in of Sabah's chief minister on Tuesday (Sept 29), whispers at Magellan Sutera Harbour suggests Perikatan Nasional are insisting that it be done today (Sept 28), instead.

At around 10am, Perikatan candidates who won in the freshly concluded election were seen at another meeting at Magellan Sutera Harbour, but without their Barisan Nasional partners.

Parti Bersatu Sabah secretary-general Datuk Jahid Jahim was also seen at the meeting.

It is believed they were called to sign pledges in support of the new chief minister.

Perikatan's candidate for chief minister is Sabah Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia chief Datuk Hajiji Mohd Noor.

Sabah STAR president Datuk Dr Jeffrey Kitingan said the CM swearing-in might be today, but did not reveal who the candidate is.

Sabah Barisan Nasional chief Datuk Seri Bung Moktar Radin is Barisan's candidate for the post.
