Not a problem if Sabah Umno stays out: Star

RANAU: The decision of Barisan Nasional (BN) Sabah to continue with or without the Sabah People’s Coalition (GRS) in the next General Election may not be a problem and is even awaited by voters of this state.

Wiramuda Exco Chief of Parti Solidariti Tanah Airku (Star), Kong Soon Choi said, the decision of Sabah BN Chairman, Datuk Seri Bung Mokhtar Radin would be evaluated by voters who have long taken a stand on the struggle of BN, especially Umno in Sabah.

“It doesn’t matter, that is their decision (Sabah BN) and if they do not want to be together. The voters know the sincerity of a political party that fights for the people or fights for only an individual. So taking a professional attitude is more important,” he said.

He said the current political scenario should not place the level of confidence too high to get rid of other comrades in a political organisation because the will of the voters is difficult to anticipate.

“This is especially true when our country and its people are currently face-to-face with economic issues that burden the people,” he said.

Therefore, he said, any decision made in a hurry without thinking about the implications only creates an unhealthy atmosphere in the current state government coalition and it is as if there is an enemy in a blanket who was not sincere all this time.

“Why lose consideration when issuing a statement when the leader also holds an important position in the Sabah State Cabinet. What does it mean for him to be in a state government formed in a coalition,” he said.

Last on Saturday, Datuk Seri Bung Mokhtar Radin when delivering a speech at the Sabah BN Convention said, Sabah BN is reviewing its relationship with GRS to ensure that BN is not cheated again.

He stressed that they do not want to be in the same position where BN is ‘friends’ with other parties only to be treated insincerely.

The statement also received a wide reaction from state and central political leaders who each gave their own views, including the Chief Minister of Sabah, Datuk Seri Panglima Hajiji Hj Noor.
