KOTA KINABALU: It is unlikely that Barisan Nasional (BN) and Umno supporters will back leaders who had left the party to join the opposition such as Parti Warisan Sabah (Warisan), Datuk Masidi Manjun said.
The Sabah Tourism, Culture and Environment Minister said Sabah folks are matured enough to know who to vote for.
"Yes, there are some former Umno members in Warisan. But I don't think that people who voted for them before will still vote for them after they left the party,
" he said.
Masidi said this when asked to comment on the impact faced by Sabah Umno after some of its leaders and members crossed over to Warisan.
"Umno is Umno, Warisan is Warisan. At the end of the day, it is still the same fight.
"We don't take things for granted and I am confident that BN will still win." he said.
