Early national election if GRS wins in Sabah: Muhyiddin

KOTA BELUD (BERNAMA) – An early 15th General Election (GE15) can be held if Gabungan Rakyat Sabah (GRS) wins the Sabah polls on September 26, Malaysian Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin hinted yesterday.

He said the Sabah state election was vital as it would decide the future political landscape of the country, especially to the people of Sabah.

“At the national level, we haven’t decided when the general election should be called…but if we win the state election in Sabah…we should quickly hold the general election.

“What’s important in Sabah polls is the signal that we can get (from the people) on whether or not they are supporting Perikatan Nasional (PN) or wanting me to continue being the Prime Minister because we want Malaysia to move forward and succeed. One of the ways to succeed is to stick with me,” he said.

Muhyiddin said this at the meet-and-greet event with the locals yesterday, which was also attended by Malaysian Minister of Agriculture and Food Industries Datuk Seri Dr Ronald Kiandee, PN canditate for Pintasan Fairuz Renddan and Barisan Nasional candidate for Usukan Datuk Seri Salleh Said Keruak.
