KOTA KINABALU: DAP Sabah hopes that its two former members, Elopura State Assemblyman Calvin Chong and Sri Tanjong State Assemblyman Justin Wong who recently joined Warisan would be the last batch of ‘political frogs’ before the implementation of the Anti-Hopping Law.
DAP Sabah welcomes the Anti-Hopping Law bill that will be tabled in Parliament on the 11th of April. This is a notable milestone for Malaysia's democracy because it is a bipartisan effort to end all political frogs once and for all.
“Sabahans understand more than anyone as we've encountered numerous betrayals from political frogs.
“The unethical party hopping culture has brought enormous damage to Sabah since the downfall of the PBS government until today, Warisan PLUS government in 2020 was also toppled.
“This culture must be swept out forever for the sake of Sabah and Malaysia’s future, said DAP Sabah in a statement yesterday.
Therefore, DAP Sabah hope that the Anti-Hopping Law will restore justice to the people's mandate and public confidence.
“We're used to political frogs giving excuses to justify their decision. Since the Sheraton Move, all political frogs including Muhyiddin Yassin and Azmin Ali justified that they defected for the people.
“These political frogs are similar, they would then criticise and condemn their former party but the people are smart. They clearly acknowledge that these actions are betraying the mandate of the people.
“We leave it to the wisdom of the people to determine their political future. As for Warisan, ever since they contested in 6 PH seats in Johor, accepting political frogs of the DAP and now seeking open partnerships has revealed their true agenda that they are no longer be part of the Opposition,” said DAP Sabah.
In the recent Melaka and Johor polls, UMNO's hegemony has returned. The people are speculating that the next would be Sabah.
DAP Sabah reiterated numerous times that only a united opposition will stand a chance to defeat and stop UMNO once again. However, the current situation is pessimistic and disappointing.
“Shafie was once a top leader in UMNO. He clearly understands the consequences of UMNO returning with its hegemony. If we continue to be divided, UMNO's return to Sabah is only a matter of time,”
