The first meeting was a special session held on June 11 where  43 assemblymen from the ruling parties, those who “jumped ship” to support Warisan and appointed assemblyman, were sworn.

However, all opposition assemblymen, including former Sabah Chief Minister Tan Sri Musa Aman, from UMNO and former Barisan Nasional (BN) component parties which remained loyal to the ousted coalition, did not attend and thus did not take their oath as assemblyman on that day.

Instead, they, except Musa (Sungai Sibuga) and Datuk Nizam Abu Bakar Titingan (Apas), from UMNO and former BN component parties, took their oath as assemblyman  the next day (June 12)at the Sabah State Assembly Speaker’s office.....
