Stay out of Borneo, Saksama tells Pakatan


(MMO) – New opposition coalition Gabungan Rakyat Saksama (Saksama) said it will only work with Pakatan Harapan if the peninsula-based pact refrains from contesting in Sabah and Sarawak.

“Otherwise, there will be [a] free for all in the coming general election,” Saksama spokesman Lina Soo told Malay Mail Online.

Soo, who is president of the Sarawak Reform Party (Reform) which is part of the seven-member Saksama, also told PKR and the DAP that Saksama would be most happy to join forces with “other parties from Malaya” who have the same agenda, that is, for a better Malaysia.

“But such [a] pact must be on the principle of three equal partners comprising the regions of Sarawak, Sabah and peninsular Malaysia in accordance with the Malaysia Agreement signed in 1963,” she said.

“Therefore, opposition political parties from the peninsula must respect our regional status by not going to Sarawak and Sabah. Likewise, we, in Sarawak, will not be putting up candidates in the peninsula or Sabah. We will confine ourselves to our turf,” Soo added.
