The PKR President’s comment on Sabah’s political turmoil have sent tongues wagging.
On Wednesday, he said Sabah should not go to the polls, despite of the attempted coup by former Chief Minister Tan Sri Musa Aman.
Anwar said that the threat of Covid-19 has yet to end.
“An election in the midst of COVID-19, this issue is the problem.”
“That is what I am concerned about,” Anwar said after meeting leaders and members of PKR in Melaka.
The same concern was raised by Musa on Thursday.
Musa said, Sabah should not go for state elections because of COVID-19. Apart from that, it also wastes money and time.
Nevertheless, the views of Anwar dan Musa were not shared by Chief Minister Datuk Seri Panglima Shafie Apdal and Sabah Governor Tun Juhar Mahiruddin.
The Governor consented to the dissolution of the Sabah Legislative Assembly, paving for the mandate to be returned to Sabahans.
Chief Minister Shafie made the announcement on Thursday morning.
According the Election rules, voters must go to the ballot boxes within 60 days of the dissolution of the State Assembly.
