The Democratic Action Party (DAP) has called on the states of Johor, Sabah and Sarawak to deny the ruling Barisan Nasional from forming the federal government after the coming general election.













KOTA KINABALU, Sabah: The Democratic Action Party (DAP) has called on the states of Johor, Sabah and Sarawak to deny the ruling Barisan Nasional from forming the federal government after the coming general elections.

DAP adviser Lim Kit Siang said these three so-called "fixed deposit" states for BN can help by rewarding the Pakatan Rakyat (PR) coalition with at least 33 parliamentary seats.
Mr Lim, who is contesting in the hot seat of Gelang Patah in Johor, was in Kota Kinabalu for a short stopover.

He said to bring about a meaningful change for Malaysia, the voters must first enable the PR to be the national government.

Mr Lim said the issues of security, corruption and illegal immigrants continue to plague Sabah and Malaysia, and it is therefore time that the three states help to turn the tide for change and vote for politics of the future.
He said: "We are at a historic junction in the history of the nation and this (is the) time when the people of Sabah must come forward to play their kingmakers' role together with Sarawak and Johor because these are the three 'fixed deposits' of BN.
"They can come forward and support the new wave of change that the days of UMNO and BN are numbered."

Sabah is clearly a state to watch, with various political party leaders dropping in as part of their campaigning programme.
Prime Minister and ruling Barisan Nasional chairman Najib Razak spent about two days in Sabah visiting several districts.
Opposition chiefs have also taken time out from their local seat campaigns to rally support for the coalition in Sabah, indicating that political parties are stepping up their game to try and break new ground and win big in Sabah.
