Zulkarnain Mahdar, pro-tem chairman of Gerakan Kuasa Rakyat Malaysia (G57) said the Yang di-Pertua Negeri, Juhar Mahiruddin, should not have consented to the request by Chief Minister Shafie Apdal to dissolve the state assembly.He said Juhar should have met with all the assemblymen before dissolving the state assembly, Shafie no longer commanded a majority.

He said Juhar should have shown neutrality in making decisions. “If he (Juhar) really wants to join politics, he should stop hiding in the palace,” he said.This is the second time complaints have been made against the Sabah governor. In December 2018, G57 had made a complaint after Sabah constitution was amended to allow Juhar Mahiruddin to occupy the seat for a longer period of time.

Zulkarnain said the longer tenure as a state governor could be interpreted as a reward for Juhar for his role to ensure Shafie was made as the chief minister.“This is why we lodge this complaint with the MACC so the agency can open an investigation paper on the matter,” he added.
