Sarawak Chief Minister Adenan Satem said the state BN is prepared to reconsider its loyalty to Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak if the latter is found to have committed wrongdoings in relation to 1MDB.
“I can give you assurance that if he is found guilty of 1MDB-related offences, then we might reconsider our loyalty to him,” he was quoted as saying by The Star.
Adenan said this in his winding-up speech at the Sarawak state legislative assembly sitting, which ends today.
At present, he said the state BN would continue to support Najib as he has not been found guilty of any wrongdoing.
“Najib is the prime minister of Malaysia and head of BN. I owe him that loyalty. And it has not been proven that he has done anything wrong,” he added.
The chief minister was responding to a question by Yap Hoi Liong (DAP-Dudong) about the state BN’s support of Najib (photo) despite its stand that Umno should not come to Sarawak.
Earlier, Adenan said he had convinced Umno not to enter Sarawak because the state-based BN parties were capable of leading and developing Sarawak.
He argued that if opposition assemblypersons agreed with not allowing Umno to enter Sarawak since it was a Peninsular Malaysia-based party, the same should apply to DAP, PKR and PAS.
“If you are unsure whether stopping Umno from coming to Sarawak is permanent or not, why don’t we pass a legislation in this House to ban the coming of Umno, DAP, PKR and PAS.
“Can I have your guarantee that you will support it?” Adenan asked Yap. – Malaysiakini
