Malaysia: Taking over Sabah a pipe dream, Warisan leaders tell Sabah Umno

  • Warisan leaders have laughed off claims from Sabah Umno that the state government will soon collapse like other Pakatan Harapan-held states in the peninsula.
  • Warisan vice-president Junz Wong and the party’s youth chief, Azis Jamman, told Sabah Umno Youth chief Abdul Aziz Julkarnain “to dream on”, saying Sabah assemblymen are firmly behind Chief Minister Shafie Apdal.
  • Aziz claimed on 20 May 20 that the absence of some two dozen Sabah assemblymen at a recent show of support for Shafie by several leaders from the state coalition was a sign that the Warisan leader’s position as chief minister is shaky.
  • Aziz also said it was an indication of what was to come in Sabah, which has remained with Shafie’s Warisan and its Pakatan Harapan allies, even as the coalition crumbled in Putrajaya in Feb 20.
  • Wong, who is the state agriculture and food industry minister, rubbished this notion, claiming many from rival parties are instead waiting to join the state coalition.
  • Azis told the Sabah Umno Youth chief to shelve any ideas of his party and his allies in PN forming a “back-door” government in the state.
  • He said Umno’s attempt to play up the so-called dissatisfaction among assemblymen when they failed to turn up during the recent show of support for Shafie was superficial, adding that this was only meant to confuse the people.
