After much deliberation and reading feedbacks from our readers, we have decided to classify our hopping politicians into 2 types of frogs – Party frogs and Coalition frogs.
Party frogs are individuals who received election mandate from the people but then switched parties.
Coalition frogs remained in their party but their party switched coalition.
We are also only taking into account the political movements of Sabahan politicians from GE14 (2018) onwards.
On that note – the most famous hopper Jeffrey Kitingan is labeled as a coalition frog as he has remained in his party (STAR) for the past few years. This might not be a popular action but we want to be fair.
