A former Sabah chief minister today claimed that “Malaya parties” have failed and that “Malaya politics have destroyed the country”.

“That is why Sabahans of all races are going back to Sabah parties,” tweeted Yong Teck Lee, who was Sabah chief minister from 1996 to 1998.

Asked why he said so, Yong explained it is because the country is seriously affected by racial and religious polarisation.

The Sabah Progressive Party (SAPP) president added that people are divided due to political conflict caused by racial politics.
