Saksama unveils election symbol for GE14

Filed under: Politics — Hornbill Unleashed @ 8:02 AM

Gabungan Rakyat Saksama (Saksama) yesterday unveiled its election symbol while making the announcement to contest in the 14th General Election (GE14).

Saksama is a political alliance comprising political parties, non-governmental organisations (NGOs), civil liberty movements and individuals nationwide.

Its component parties are State Reform Party (STAR), Parti Bansa Dayak Sarawak Baru (PBDS Baru), Parti Sejahtera Angkatan Perpaduan Sabah (Sapu), Pertubuhan Perpaduan Rakyat Kebangsaan Sabah (Perpaduan), Sabah-based Malaysia United People’s Party (MUPP), Parti Kebangsaan Sabah (PKS) and Peninsula-based People’s Alternative Party (PAP).

At a news conference yesterday, STAR president Lina Soo said Saksama would announce the seats it will be contesting at a later date.

According to her, Saksama is offering a real choice for voters in the coming general election.

“Choosing between Barisan Nasional (BN) and Pakatan Harapan does not offer voters any real option or choice. In essence, voters are only offered a choice between Umno or ex-Umno.

“Saksama is the middle ground.

“Saksama offers hope that a new political realignment will address the inconsistency, conflict and disparity which we the ordinary people like you and me in Sarawak and Sabah are suffering,” she said.

Soo pointed out that Saksama aims to realigng the political landscape of Malaysia – to restructure political power, revenue and resources equitably and fairly among three

partners as enshrined in the Malaysia Agreement 1963 (MA63).

She said ‘Saksama seeks kingmaker status which it can leverage upon to extract the best benefits for the electorate and population’.

“In a hung parliament where neither side can form the federal government, Saksama with its kingmaker seats can determine the political future and destiny of Sarawak, Sabah and Peninsular Malaysia.

“Our campaign for MA63 is crucial. We will unveil, layer by layer, our strategy as we move forward,” she added.

  1. This is a strategy to fail the opposition chances in the GE14….hidden hands behind them to weaken support for PH?
    There will be some from amongst them who will betray the rest to join BN after conclusion of GE14.
