KOTA KINABALU: Eyebrows were raised when a picture of Parti Cinta Sabah (PCS) president Datuk Seri Anifah Aman handing over a letter to Chief Minister Datuk Seri Hajiji Noor on Wednesday (April 14) went viral.
Speculations were afoot on social media that Anifah was applying to join Gabungan Rakyat Sabah (GRS) or the Sabah Perikatan coalition.
However, Anifah sent out a press statement to say that the opposition party’s visit to Hajiji was just a courtesy call.
He said the courtesy call saw both parties talking about PCS’ view on the various issues relating to Sabah, and PCS giving suggestions on the way forward for Sabah.
He said PCS also asked for clarification and explanation on the latest development on MA63 related matters for Sabah.
Anifah did not mention anything about PCS wanting to join GRS or Perikatan in the statement.
So far, opposition parties Usno and LDP have applied to join Perikatan.
Like PCS, both parties failed to gain any seats in the state’s snap election in September last year.
