Abang Jo says it again – GPS will not support Anwar to be PM

(The New Sarawak) – WITH rumours swirling again that Gabungan Parti Sarawak will back opposition leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim to be the new Prime Minister, coalition chairman Datuk Patinggi Abang Johari Openg has refuted the claim.

The Sarawak CM said the GPS would continue to support Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin’s administration to ensure a stable government.

“There seems no end to the political upheaval in Malaysia.

“Here we are, still having someone trying to be prime minister when the people in this country are clamouring for assistance (and want) political stability to get the Covid-19-devastated economy back on even footing.

“In Malaysia, we don’t have any other work to do, other than becoming prime minister. I’m sad,” Abang Johari said at the Betong division’s Parti Pesaka Bumiputera Bersatu (PBB) convention today, The Malaysian Insight reported.

Abang Johari told PBB delegates that GPS will not support those whose political agenda is to serve their personal agenda.

“Even though we are friends, the people are more important than friendship.

“We in GPS have principles. So does PBB. We are trained to look after the people, not our personal interests.”

Anwar has yet to reveal the number of MPs who support him and said he would only release details after meeting the King but there’s widespread speculations that the support include the 18 MPs from the GPS.
