Chief Minister Datuk Seri Hajiji Noor says he has the support of 44 assemblymen and that statutory declarations have been submitted to the Sabah head of state Tun Juhar Mahiruddin.

He claims the SDs were presented to Juhar during a meeting on Saturday (Jan 7) evening.

He said the support of the 44 was from Gabungan Rakyat Sabah (GRS), Pakatan Harapan and Barisan Nasional assemblymen.

“Out of the 44 assemblymen, a total of 29 were GRS members, Pakatan (seven), Barisan (five) and PAS, one.

“With this support, I remain as Chief Minister and the state under my leadership remains strong and intact,” Hajiji said to reporters outside his official residence in Sri Gaya on Sunday (Jan 8).

On the state cabinet reshuffle, he said it would be done very soon.

“For those who wish to dispute my post as Chief Minister under the law, they were welcome to bring the matter to court,” he said.

Also present were Sabah Pakatan chairman Datuk Christina Liew, Datuk Shahelmey Yahya (Barisan), Datuk Ewon Benedick and Sabah PAS secretary Aliakbar Gulasan. – The Star
