Equal status for Sabah with Malaya means the eventual closure of parti Malaya in Sabah

Kota Kinabalu, Thursday, 20 September, 2018: Politically, the one and only logical extension of the return of equal status for Sabah and Sarawak with Malaya is that political parties from Malaya will eventually have to cease its presence in Sabah.
