GRS sec-gen confident its four MPs not affected by anti-party hopping law

KOTA KINABALU: Gabungan Rakyat Sabah (GRS) is confident that they will not be affected by the anti-party hopping law, says coalition secretary-general Datuk Seri Masidi Manjun.

He said that GRS was fully aware of the anti-party hopping law which came into effect on Oct 5, well before GE15 nomination day on Nov 5.

"We will inform the Parliament Speaker, if and when necessary, of the GRS MPs' position," he said in a statement on Monday (Dec 12).

The statement comes amid the question of whether the four GRS MPs had run afoul of the anti-party hopping law after Chief Minister Datuk Seri Hajiji Noor announced that the Sabah Bersatu chapter was leaving the party en masse.
