GPS & GRS Have Reportedly Agreed To Work As A Bloc
Gabungan Rakyat Sabah (GRS) and Gabungan Parti Sarawak (GPS) have agreed to cooperate as a bloc to determine who will form the new federal government, according to a source
The source also claimed that GRS has effectively delegated the bloc's decision to GPS, with the Sabah coalition agreeing to follow its Sarawak counterpart's lead, reported Free Malaysia Today.
The source also mentioned that GPS chairman, Tan Sri Abang Johari Openg, serves as the group's official spokesperson.
The decision by GRS to join forces with GPS is believed to have caused tensions within Perikatan Nasional (PN).
Datuk Seri Haji Hajiji Noor, chairman of the GRS, is also the leader of Bersatu in Sabah. Bersatu's president is Muhyiddin.
Earlier on Saturday, 19 November, Abang Johari had announced that GPS would form the next federal government with PN, Barisan Nasional (BN), and GRS
Hajiji reaffirmed GRS's support for Muhyiddin as prime minister two days later.
However, BN announced yesterday, 22 November, that they have decided not to support either Pakatan Harapan (PH) or PN in forming the government, instead announcing that the coalition will remain in the opposition.
Later, Abang Johari added that GPS would defer to the Yang di-Pertuan Agong (YDPA) Al-Sultan Abdullah Ri'ayatuddin Al-Mustafa Billah Shah in choosing the next prime minister.
At 11am today, 23 November, GPS leaders were scheduled to meet with the Agong.
