Malaya parties' ignorance of issues facing Sabah and Sarawak will cost them the next polls, says economist

PETALING JAYA - Jomo said the opposition parties were not sensitive to the hopes and aspirations of East Malaysians, and this was partly why they still could not work together with political parties in Sabah and Sarawak.

“The opposition is likely going to lose, not because it is weak but because the opposition in the peninsula does not want to unite with the opposition in Sabah and Sarawak,” Jomo said at the launch of a book on Malaysian history by veteran politician Syed Husin Ali today.

Prominent economist Jomo Kwame Sundaram today said peninsula-based opposition parties’ ignorance of the issues facing Sabah and Sarawak would cost them at the next polls.
