Barisan Nasional (BN), Perikatan Nasional (PN) and Parti Bersatu Sabah (PBS) arrived at a consensus today to avoid fielding their candidates against one another in several constituencies in the upcoming Sabah election.

BN chairman Ahmad Zahid Hamidi said they had agreed to face the Sept 26 election as a team.

“The parties announced their candidates yesterday, and it seems there are bound to be clashes among ourselves. This will be resolved as soon as possible,” he told reporters.

Zahid earlier attended a meeting with over 20 leaders from BN, PN and PBS, along with Bersatu president Muhyiddin Yassin.

BN and PN, which announced their candidates yesterday, are currently clashing in three constituencies: Paginatan, Tulid and Sook.

Zahid said the parties had also agreed to launch a common manifesto known as “Aku Janji” on Malaysia Day to make known what the coalitions could offer the people of Sabah if they win the election.

“The ‘Aku Janji’ is a new offer for Sabah,” he added.

He said all parties concerned would coordinate their activities to enable a smooth election campaign.
