Jeffrey Kitingan, deputy chairman of Gabungan Rakyat Sabah (GRS), has thrown in his support for a unity government led by Pakatan Harapan (PH), reported FMT.
Kitingan, who’s also head of Parti Solidariti Tanah Airku (STAR), a component party of GRS, said that STAR supports the King’s request for a unity government in order to break the political deadlock.
Right now, the best answer I can see is a unity government. However, for this government to be functional and really inclusive, it must include the elected governments of Sabah and Sarawak.”
“The unity government mechanism must be established for it to work,” he added.
Kitingan said that GRS and Gabungan Parti Sarawak (GPS) shared 29 seats, while two independent MPs and one from Parti Kesejahteraan Demokratik Masyarakat (PKDM) agreed to function as one body.
With 32 seats, the “Borneo bloc” could give the country much-needed stability.
“The peninsular politicians and political parties are making a mess of Malaysia. It is time for the Borneo states to take the lead and bring stability to the country,” he remarked.
On Monday, GPS announced their support to PN, BN and GRS to form the government.
However, GPS later hinted they would leave it to the Agong to decide who should lead the country.
