Musa, who is Sabah Umno chairman, said there was a good working relationship among all nine Sabah Barisan component parties and they were prepared to face the elections.

“The working relationship is good and support is good. The Barisan machinery is in place,” he told reporters after a meet-the-people session in Kampung Padas in Sandakan yesterday.

The Chief Minister, who declined to reveal the target for the coming elections, said however that he is confident it will be met.
