The Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia president, Shafie added, had further claimed that he had discussed the matter with PKR president Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim, who was agreeable to supporting Muhyiddin. Both Warisan and PKR are Opposition parties. “I told him (Muhyiddin) if you have the numbers, you go ahead, I won’t follow you,” Shafie told the crowd yesterday in Libaran, once a stronghold of his political nemesis Tan Sri Musa Aman, a former Sabah chief minister under Barisan Nasional. “Pertemuan di Tokyo yang cukup bersejarah ini antara lain membuka ruang dan peluang kesediaan pelabur negara tersebut termasuk negara lain memulakan pelaburan di Malaysia dalam masa terdekat ini,” katanya selepas merasmikan Kejohanan Bola Tampar Tertutup Lipis di Kampung Dusun dekat sini hari ini.

Shafie said the so-called coalitions in place did not bring stability to the nation and reflected a leadership crisis. “These coalitions are being formed and keep changing every time someone pulls the plug on the group, on the basis of race or religion or whatever is convenient. “They stab here and there, and party hopping has become normal,” he said. “Kita di Kementerian Pembangunan Luar Bandar akan melihat dengan lebih terperinci strategi yang boleh dirangka supaya rakyat berteraskan Keluarga Malaysia secara keseluruhannya turut menikmati pertumbuhan ekonomi yang semakin berkembang di negara ini,” katanya. He noted that democratic countries like the United Kingdom and United States did not have coalitions ahead of elections.

“Zuraida is joining PBM. It is as if Bersatu is not ‘bersatu’ (united) enough for her. Does it mean that PBM is more united than Bersatu?” he said. Shafie observed that immediately upon her resignation announcement, Muhyiddin had declared that the Ampang parliamentary seat belonged to Bersatu. “They are now fighting over a seat,” he said, adding that it was a clear sign of instability.

Shafie reiterated that Warisan, as a multiracial party, was not planning to form a pact with its former partner Pakatan as he said it forced Sabah-based parties to give way in contesting many of the 25 parliamentary seats in the state. “A local party must have more MPs in Parliament; if not, it would be disadvantageous to the state,” he added. He also slammed the Gabungan Rakyat Sabah coalition, saying that leaders like Usno president Tan Sri Pandikar Amin Mulia, Parti Bersatu Sabah president Datuk Seri Dr Maximus Ongkili and Sabah STAR president Datuk Seri Dr Jeffrey Kitingan had been political rivals who would eventually have axes to grind among themselves. “They have all fought each other in the past, now they are sitting together. How can we trust this kind of coalition?” he said.
