Masidi dismisses ‘tsunami’ talk

17th April, 2018

By MOHD IZHAM B. HASHIM

KOTA KINABALU: Claims of political tsunami in Sabah in the coming elections has been dismissed by Tourism, Culture, and Environment Minister Datuk Masidi Manjun.

“There is no such tsunami; Sabahans are smart and matured voters although some parties like to use the word ‘tsunami’ to make it sound more happening when it’s not,” he told reporters after launching the book titled ‘Finding Jesselton’ at a hotel here yesterday.

Masidi, who is also assemblyman for Karanaan said the so-called political tsunami touted by certain parties is less than what it’s made out to be, based on his recent experience having visited various villages in the last two weeks.

Responding to questions on LDP members in Kudat ditching the BN-coalition to join Warisan, Masidi insisted the election fight remains on course despite some members leaving the coalition.

“It’s still the same election regardless who they are, and we take all our opponents seriously,” he said and pointed out local opposition party Warisan not only has former BN members but also those from other opposition joining the party.

“Barisan Nasional (BN) works hard to face our opponents and to me, they are worthy rivals but how much votes they get remains in question,” he said.
