Anwar speaks in Tuaran, Sabah after Tuaran MP Wilfred Bumburing quit the BN and launched the Sabah Reform Movement. The non-partisan movement will work with Pakatan.
Yesterday, another BN MP (Beaufort) Lajim Ukin quit the Umno supreme council and his post of Beaufort party division chief.
Ideally, a by-election should be called to deter party-hopping on spurious grounds that do not have the support of the public. But in this case, since the general election is so close, the electorate can wait for the polls to express what they think of these political moves.
Anwar also announced that under Pakatan rule, royalties for oil-producing states would be raised from 5 per cent to 20 per cent.
