[ENGLISH VERSION BELOW] Gabungan Pilihan Raya Bersih dan Adil (Bersih 2.0) tidak dapat meneruskan majlis debat agung calon ketua menteri Sabah kerana hanya seorang sahaja panel yang bersetuju, iaitu ketua umum Usno Pandikar Amin, untuk menyertai perdebatan tersebut.

Pandikar adalah jemputan pertama yang memberikan respons positif terhadap undangan tersebut sebaik sahaja Bersih 2.0 menghantar jemputan kepada beliau.

Calon calon lain untuk jawatan ketua menteri yang telah dijemput adalah presiden Warisan Shafie Apdal, presiden Parti Cinta Sabah Anifah Aman, pengerusi perhubungan Umno Sabah Bung Mokhtar Radin, pengerusi Bersatu Hajiji Noor dan mantan Ketua Menteri Sabah Chong Kah Kiat dari Parti Liberal Demokratik. Namun semua calon ini tidak memberi sebarang respon sebelum tarikh akhir yang ditetapkan oleh kami.

Kami memuji Pandikar kerana bersedia menghadap pengundi dan menjelaskan visi dan manifesto partinya untuk Sabah. Ini memberi contoh yang baik dalam menyumbang budaya pilihan raya yang lebih sihat dan matang dengan penglibatan dalam perbahasan dasar agar para pengundi dapat membuat keputusan yang tepat dalam pilihan raya.

Bersih 2.0 berasa kecewa tidak dapat menjalankan debat ini. Sekiranya debat ini berlangsung, ianya diharapkan dapat memberikan norma baharu kepada proses pilihan raya di Sabah dengan calon-calon ketua menteri perlu berlawan hujah, visi dan manifesto serta membentangkannya kepada pengundi secara tuntas.

Debate cancelled, only one panel member agree to participate

The Coalition for Clean and Fair Election (Bersih 2.0) has to cancelled the debate among Sabah chief ministerial candidates as only one panel member, Pandikar Amin, the de facto leader of Usno, agree to join the debate.

Pandikar is the first to have responded positively to the invitation while Bersih 2.0 is still waiting for a favourable reply from other candidates.

The other chief ministerial candidates who were invited to join the debate were Warisan president Shafie Apdal, Parti Cinta Sabah president Anifah Aman, Sabah Umno chairperson Bung Mokhtar Radin, Bersatu chairperson Hajiji Noor and former Sabah Chief Minister Chong Kah Kiat from the Liberal Democratic Party.

We laud Pandikar for his willingness to face the voters and explain his party’s vision and manifesto for Sabah. This sets a good example in contributing to a healthier and more mature election culture by engaging in a policy debate so that voters can make informed decision in the election.

Bersih 2.0 is disappointed not to be able to conduct this debate. If this debate takes place, it would hopefully have been a new norm for the electoral process in Sabah with the candidates for chief minister having to present their arguments, visions and manifestos conclusively to the voters.
