DAP and Amanah candidates will contest in the upcoming state election under the Warisan banner, while PKR insists on using the PKR flag.

DAP secretary-general Lim Guan Eng today said, the use of the common logo was based on a request by the party’s state committee, on the grounds that only a united front would secure a victory for the Warisan Plus coalition at the polls.

Lim admitted that it was a difficult decision for the party’s central executive committee to make.

“We felt that the political stakes were too high and we could not afford to lose in the Sabah polls.”

“So, in order to restore the concept of ‘people power’ over ‘cash is king’, DAP has decided to use a common banner as requested by the party’s state committee.”

“Only a united front can secure a major victory for our allies and us in Warisan Plus,” he said in a statement.

Lim added that a victory for Shafie would be a “resounding rejection of the politics of treachery”, alluding to how the voters’ mandate in the 2018 general election was betrayed with the defections that led to the fall of the Pakatan Harapan federal government.

Early last month, Amanah suggested the entire coalition use a common Warisan logo. The suggestion was well received by Sabahans.

Only PKR has insisted on using its own logo. It earlier today released its own list of 14 candidates.

Talk is rife that Anwar’s obsession with becoming Prime Minister candidate is causing a split among the PH allies.

A senior PKR leader was quoted saying, “if Warisan wins big, it is good for PH, but bad for Anwar’s chances as Prime Minister because he will have a rival.”
