Sabah CM says thank you again to those who supported GRS during political turmoil

KOTA KINABALU: Datuk Seri Hajiji Noor repeated his gratitude to those who rendered support to Gabungan Rakyat Sabah (GRS) during an attempt to overthrow the state government earlier this year.

The Sabah Chief Minister said this in his policy speeach at Parti Gagasan Rakyat Sabah's first general convention here on Monday (Nov 13).

He added that the attempt had momentarily affected the state government and was a black mark in Sabah’s political history.

“Thank you to our once political foe - Pakatan Harapan - for its support then and also to some of our Barisan Nasional and Umno members who chose to stick by our side, allowing us to continue governing this state,” Hajiji said.

He said the disappointing incident was also hard to forget.

Hajiji said the people of Sabah were also affected as they were concerned whether another state election would be held, thus causing political instability.

“Any attempt to overthrow a government is not an act of democracy. It is a desperate action that is embarrassing and unethical,” he said.

On this note, Hajiji urged Gagasan Rakyat members to continue to strengthen their bonds and the party, so that they can continue to serve the people well.

He also advised them to be ready for the state election to be called at any time, although the state government has two more years to serve.

He said Gagasan Rakyat, through the state government, would continue to fight for Sabah rights under the Malaysia Agreement 1963 (MA63) and strive to bring harmony, prosperity and better developments to the people.
