SABAH POLLS | Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin said that if PN-BN-PBS alliance was to win in the coming Sabah state election, a snap general election would not be far away.
This is the first time he has indicated he is in favour of a snap general election, previously only hinting that PN and its allies should work hard "as if the general election is going to be held tomorrow”.
“If we win in Sabah, we will hurry up and have the general election. I know what the media will write but let them speculate.
“But the Sabah state election is first and is the most important.
“The signal must be given by Sabahans that ‘we support PN, we want Muhyiddin to continue to be prime minister'. We want Malaysia to move forward and be successful and the only way to be successful is to be with me,” Muhyiddin said in a ceramah at Pintasan, Kota Belud today.
He was speaking to a crowd of over 250 people, most of whom wore dark blue shirts or vests emblazoned with the words "Perikatan Nasional".
Part of the crowd which turned up also spilled out onto the streets and the food stall next door.
