KOTA KINABALU, February 8, 2018: Gabungan Sabah team starting their Chinese New Year greetings early in Inanam township received a warm response from Inanam folks while distributing CNY greeting cards and calendars this morning.

Today’s news reports in Malaysia and Philippines that the Philippines, in amending its constitution, plan to add Sabah as the “13th state of the Philippines” should not be taken lightly because such attempts by senior personalities in the Philippines confer some dangerous legitimacy on the Philippines/Sulu claim to Sabah. Such attempts (to claim Sabah) will never succeed but their continuing efforts to claim Sabah serve to embolden the subversive elements at Sabah’s border to destabilise Sabah and stiffen the resistance among illegal immigrants to ESSCOM.
At a press conference today, leaders of Gabungan Sabah pointed out that it is unconstitutional to have an election of the Sabah Legislative Assembly with only 60 members instead of 73 members.
This is because the amendment to the Article 14(2) of the Sabah constitution in 2016 has been approved by the Assembly, assented to by the TYT and gazetted by the government. It is now solid law that the next Sabah Assembly shall have 73 members.
The PCS (Parti Cinta Sabah) pull out from Gabungan Sabah in April 2017 is a gift to UMNO because it is the greatest fear of UMNO if Sabah parties are united. UMNO knows that, in Sabah, Malaya-based parties cannot defeat the UMNO-led BN as shown in the last elections.
