“There must be something the people are not happy with in the administration of the PH government, not only at the Johor State level, but at the Federal Government level, which may include issues of the unfulfilled 14th General Election promises. 

“At the same time PH cannot look down on cooperation between the opposition parties through Muafakat Nasional involving PAS and Umno.

“The cooperation between Umno and PAS has an impact on the results the Tanjung Piai by-election,” he said in a statement commenting on the victory of BN candidate, Wee Jeck Seng. 

Hajiji who is Sulaman Assemblyman however said PH candidate’s defeat in Tanjung Piai has no impact on Bersatu’s development and strength in Sabah.
