KUCHING: Chief Minister Datuk Patinggi Abang Johari Tun Openg said Sabahans have made their decision at the just concluded state election and hoped that Sabah would continue to progress under Gabungan Rakyat Sabah (GRS) government.

“I want to congratulate the people in Sabah who have chosen their government through a democratic progress and I pray that they continue to progress under the new government,” he told reporters when met during ‘A Sunday morning with CM: Dialogue Session with Young Entrepreneurs in Sarawak’ at Pullman Hotel here on Sunday.

The chief minister said what is important is that there is stable political situation in order to carry out the trust that has been given to the new government.

At the Sabah polls on Saturday, GRS which comprises Perikatan Nasional (PN), Barisan Nasional (BN) and Parti Bersatu Sabah won 38 out of 73 seats for a simple majority.

When asked whether the result of the Sabah polls would further facilitate Sarawak’s efforts especially in fulfilling the demands on the Malaysia Agreement 1963 (MA 63) issues, Abang Johari said, “Sabah seems to be aligned with the wishes of Sarawak as well”.

He said the Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin had mentioned that a council would be set up to look into the matter.

“We will see what happens, and when the time comes, we will negotiate whatever outstanding issues that have not been resolved,” he said.
