“Insya-Allah, after the meeting I am confident Anwar will meet with the media to state the decision made from the meeting,” he said.
The prime minister had concluded his official visit to Indonesia and is now at the chief minister’s official home in Sri Gaya, here, to meet with Hajiji.
The Sabah political crisis occurred when Bung Moktar on Friday announced that Sabah Umno and BN had pulled their support towards Hajiji as Sabah Chief Minister.
This has caused the government established under Gabungan Rakyat Sabah (GRS) is now in a turmoil when Hajiji had lost the support of several assemblymen.
