KUCHING, Nov 21: It is very clear from the results of the Melaka state election that the people want a strong and stable government and detest the ‘frogging’ culture.

This is the view of Chief Minister Datuk Patinggi Tan Sri Abang Johari Tun Openg when he said people would eventually choose stability over political uncertainty.


“There are two messages (that are) very clear. Number one, stable government. The people want a strong and stable government.

“Number two, frogging culture. People don’t like that. That’s why you notice one party ‘kosong’ (winning zero seats),” he told reporters after launching the earth breaking ceremony of the Sg Sarawak Bridge and Second Kuching-Samarahan Trunk Road at the construction site here today.

Sarawak should learn from these two lessons, he added.

Meanwhile, Abang Johari expressed relief that frogging culture does not exist in Gabungan Parti Sarawak (GPS)’s coalition party Parti Pesaka Bumiputera Bersatu (PBB).

The Barisan Nasional (BN) coalition led by Umno captured Melaka yesterday by winning 21 out of 28 seats in the state polls. — DayakDaily
