Sabah open to cooperating with federal govt - Shafie


The Sabah government is always open to working with the federal government on state and national development matters, said caretaker Chief Minister Shafie Apdal.
The Warisan president said Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin had been made aware of this.
"I have informed him (Muhyiddin) that Sabah is prepared for a cooperative relationship with the federal government and will cooperate G-to-G (government to government) for the benefit of the country.
"We are different when it comes to politics and let's leave that aside. My political stance on certain matters and principles may differ but we will cooperate in building the country. That is important," he told reporters after attending the state-level National Day celebration in Kota Kinabalu today.
Shafie was commenting on Muhyiddin's statement on Saturday, where the premier reportedly said it would be better if the Sabah government was aligned with the federal government led by him as this would bring greater impact in various aspects.
Muhyiddin said this during his two-day working visit to the state which ended yesterday.
Sabah will hold its state election on Sept 26 following the dissolution of the state legislative assembly on July 30.
The dissolution of the state assembly was announced by Shafie a few hours after former chief minister Musa Aman claimed that he had secured a simple majority to form a new state government, thus overthrowing the Warisan-led state administration.
