PUTRAJAYA: The Sabah Barisan Nasional election machinery is prepared should a snap state election be called, said Sabah BN secretary Datuk Abdul Rahman Dahlan.
“Whether an early election is called or not, the machinery is ready,” said the Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department when asked about speculation that Sabah will call for a snap election, instead of holding the state election together with the general election, which are only due next year.
Abdul Rahman, who is also BN’s Strategic Communications director, said it would be “more exciting” if there was a snap election in Sabah.
“A separate election will enable our friends in the peninsula to come down and help us,” he said, adding that synchronised elections in Sabah have been the norm for the last 20 years.
He was speaking to reporters after the monthly assembly of agencies under him here yesterday. – BERNAMA
