Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin today hinted at an early general election if Gabungan Rakyat Sabah (GRS) wins the state polls on Sept 26.

He said the state election was vital as it would determine the country’s political landscape, especially for the people of Sabah.

“At the national level, we haven’t decided when the general election should be called, but if we win the state election in Sabah, we should quickly hold the general election,” he said at an event in Kota Belud.

“What’s important in the Sabah polls is the signal that we can get (from the people) on whether or not they support Perikatan Nasional (PN) or want me to continue being the prime minister, because we want Malaysia to go forward and succeed.

“One of the ways to succeed is to stick with me.”

Muhyiddin, who is chairman of PN, said Sabahans should help ensure victory for GRS so that the state government can be aligned with the federal administration.

“The choice is yours,” he said. “If there is a chance to form a new state government, do not opt for Warisan because Pakatan Harapan has ceased to exist and no longer rules the country.

“I don’t think the people of Sabah still want to choose the opposition in this very critical situation, especially when economic activity is declining due to Covid-19.

“We need to overcome this difficult situation, and that is why we need a PN-aligned state government.”

He also said effort should be made towards economic recovery by both state and federal governments.

“We have been among the best countries in handling Covid-19. We don’t want to be the worst in post-Covid-19 economic recovery.

“If the Sabah government is led by GRS after the polls on Sept 26, I promise to help Sabah revive its economy – back to normal, if not better than before Covid-19,” he added.
