Published on: Thursday, October 11, 2018

Kota Kinabalu: The new State Government has no plans to dissolve the State Legislative Assembly and hold a snap election, said Chief Minister Datuk Seri Mohd Shafie Apdal.

"There will be no dissolution of the State Legislative Assembly because we are the majority that form the State Government.

"Do not listen to rumours that are spread in the social media," he said when addressing 19 new political secretaries prior to their swearing-in at the Sabah Administrative Centre (PPNS) on Wednesday.


Shafie's statement was in response to rumours spread widely in the social media that he will call for a snap State election.

In fact, various rumours have been circulating in Sabah in anticipation of the High Court's decision over a case of who is the rightful Chief Minister. Tan Sri Musa Aman was first sworn as Sabah Chief Minister on May 10 while Shafie was sworn in on May 12 following the May 9 general election this year. – Hayati Dzulkifli
