KOTA KINABALU, April 6 — The Sabah state assembly will be dissolved tomorrow to pave the way for the 14th general election, Tan Sri Musa Aman said today.
The chief minister said he has met the head of state, Yang di-Pertua Negeri Tun Juhar Mahiruddin to get consent earlier today.
“The dissolution of the state legislative assembly will start tomorrow, April 7,” he said at a press conference at his official residence here.
When asked whether the legal suits brought against the government for a disparity in the number of seats in the Sabah Consitution would cause any issues, Musa dismissed the legal implications.
“The pending legal suits do not prevent the dissolution of the assembly and the existing 60 seats are still legal non-withstanding the amendment because Parliament not the Agong has approved the 13 new seats,” he said.
Musa hopes that Sabahans will give Barisan Nasional (BN) a fresh mandate so that it can continue with its development agenda and look after their needs.
“We have a proven track record and hope that the people will continue to support the BN,” he said.
