Autonomy will be granted to Sabah when Pakatan Rakyat comes to power, the top leaders of the opposition coalition promised yesterday, the eve of Malaysia Day.
Anwar Ibrahim followed by Lim Kit Siang and Nasharudin Mat Isa of PKR, DAP and PAS respectively also pledged to grant Sabah political independence during a special gathering here to formally launch Pakatan Sabah, the opposition coalition.
I think SAPP welcomes such a PROMISE, but I need to ask how about the Parties under Pakatan, are they also having their 'autonomy' ie. to elect their own leader instead of being appointed by the central leadership? If these posts are appointed ones, then it defeats the purpose of being having 'autonomy' which is I deemed as only window-dressing.
