Sabah Chief Minister Datuk Seri Musa Haji Aman said Barisan Nasional (BN) will win all the 58 state seats and 23 MP seats in tomorrow (Saturday - March 8) general elections. BN had won two MPs and a State seat unopposed on nomination day. Opposition Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) canidate for Gum Gum had pulled out making it two MPs and two State seats for BN.
But PKR's vice president Datuk Dr Jeffrey Kitingan had declared that his party would formed the next State Government for they are confident of winning 33 seats and 50-50 chances in several other constituencies.
Will we see this happening? If indeed this (PKR - 33 seats) become a reality, I believe BN with fight to form the State Government by making use of a provision in the State Constitution. They will appoint six Nominated members of the State Legislative Assembly like what Tun Datu Mustapha Datu Harun and Datuk Harris Salleh did in 1984(?) when Parti Bersatu Sabah (PBS) toppled Parti Berjaya Government.
