Pakatan Harapan (PH) should realise that gaining the favour of political parties in Sabah and Sarawak does not revolve around a symbol or logo, says Dr Ammar Redza Ahmad Rizal. The political commentator stated that the issue was whether or not PH could be trusted to seriously include Sabah and Sarawak in their national development plan rather than as an instrument for votes and parliament seats. “PH is in a critical state in order to ensure that they can secure support and votes from Sabah and Sarawak. They have come to realise that voter support for them, especially among undecided voters in Malay majority constituencies, is going down. “This is due to the withdrawal of Bersatu from the alliance, then forming Perikatan Nasional (PN) together with United Malay National Organisation (Umno) and Parti Islam Se-Malaysia (PAS). Moreover, the unclear relationship with the likes of Parti Pejuang Tanah Air (Pejuang) also exacerbates the situation,” he said on Monday (Sept 6). Ammar, who is with the Faculty of Language and Communication, Universiti Malaysia Sarawak, pointed out that PH’s ability to claim seats in Peninsular was also decreasing. “Thus, they change their strategy with Sabah and Sarawak. Although Lim Guan Eng mentioned that autonomy is the main reason behind allowing parties to use their respective symbols, this is not the real issue.
