Sabah Perikatan Nasional chairman Hajiji Noor was today called to meet Sabah Yang Dipertua Negeri Juhar Mahiruddin.
Hajiji, dressed in a blazer, songkok and white shirt, arrived at Istana Negeri at 3.55pm.
“I was called,” he told reporters when asked why he was there.
Hajiji, who is Sulaman assemblyman, was earlier announced by Gabungan Rakyat Sabah (GRS) as the new chief minister.
GRS secured a clear majority to take over the state government from Warisan in the Sept 26 election, winning 38 of the 73 seats in the assembly.
