KUCHING: Gabungan Parti Sarawak (GPS) did not discuss the just concluded Sabah state election at its meeting today.

Chief Minister Datuk Patinggi Abang Johari Tun Openg said GPS did not discuss matters pertaining to Sabah in its preparation for the Sarawak state election which is expected to be held soon.

“No, Sabah has nothing to do with us,” he said in response to questions from reporters after he officiated at Sarawak Welfare Micro-Entrepreneurs Day (HUMKS) 2020 at Pullman Hotel here.

He also said that Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) president Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim was also not discussed in the meeting.

Abang Johari, who is also GPS chairman, insisted that it was just a normal meeting and engagement with party leaders.

Recently, Anwar announced that he had majority support of Parliament members to form the government.

There were rumours of support for the PKR president from GPS MPs, but this was denied by Abang Johari, GPS secretary general Datuk Alexander Nanta Linggi, and GPS parliamentary chief whip Datuk Seri Fadillah Yusof.

They stressed that GPS would continue to work with the Perikatan Nasional (PN) government and support Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin as Prime Minister.
