Just got this info : The Sabah State Assembly will likely be dissolved in April and the State elections will then be held in May of this year 2017.
Kleptocrat landed in Tamil Nadu a couple of days ago. The info I get is that after he comes back, he will be spending time in Sabah. Then the Sabah assembly will be dissolved soon after that and elections will be held in May 2017.
Maybe the kleptocrats will hold a rally at the Likas Stadium. There have been sightings of crocodiles in the monsoon drains near the stadium. My son who served at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital recalls treating a patient who survived a crocodile attack.
On the walls of the pyramids in Egypt there are hieroglyphics of hippopotamus biting crocodiles. The tour guides said that the people who drew those pictures must have had a sense of humour – 3000 years or so ago.
Actually hippos do bite crocodiles in half. So I hope the crocodiles in Likas do bite with care. Dont bite off more than you can chew.
Here is some dated but relevant elections news about Sabah :

My comments : Of course Shafie Apdal has been busy in Sabah. He has not wasted a single day since he was fired from UMNO.
Sabah will be a strong indicator about where the nation’s politics will evolve.
