Sabah Chooses on September 26

In Malaysia, the 2020 Sabah state election is due to take place on September 26. And it is expected to elect 73 members of the 16th Sabah State Legislative Assembly. 

Essentially, a battle between two behemoths, Warisan Plus (consisting of Parti Warisan Sabah, PKR, DAP, Amanah and UPKO) and Gabungan Rakyat Sabah. (consisting of Perikatan Nasional, Barisan Nasional and Parti Bersatu Sabah). 

Never has it been so clear which side of the political divide should win and in my educated opinion, will win. Decisively. 

The Warisan Plus campaign advocates “unity” and “multiculturalism” in an apparent attempt to draw focus on the heavy dominance of the Malay-based Bersatu, UMNO, and PAS in the federal government. 

One billboard that is sure to resonate with Malaysians – not just Sabahans – carries the text “We are here to build a nation, not a particular race or religion”:

Certainly, a refreshing message that our politicians should take heed. And that citizens should resoundingly demand! 

A Malaysia for All!


Celtic suffered a shock third minute deficit before they recovered to beat St Mirren 2-1 on Wednesday. Victory takes the Scottish champs to within three points of Rangers at the top of the Scottish Premiership with a game in hand. 

Two goals – both crafted by Ryan Christie – had turned the game around. Shane Duffy, left unmarked six yards out planted a header beyond the Buddies’ goalie from an inswinging free-kick in the twenty-first minute. And then James Forrest nodded in a well-placed header fifteen minutes later.
