KOTA KINABALU: Sabah Parti KeADILan Rakyat (PKR) will likely be filing election petitions to challenge the results of the 13th general election in some of the constituencies its candidates had contested in and lost.
Its state liaison chairman, Ahmad Thamrin Jaini, yesterday said that Sabah PKR was in the process of gathering evidence of discrepancies and wrongdoings in the constituencies they had contested in.
“Once all the evidence is collected, the state leadership will discuss and decide when to file the petitions,” Thamrin said.
PPPS president Datuk Seri Lajim Ukin who had contested under PKR’s logo in the election last month, had already disclosed that he would file election petitions in areas that they had lost with a small majority as it was in line with the instructions from the PKR’s central leadership.
“Among the constituencies we will file election petitions are Kawang, Banggi, Papar and Beaufort. There will be other areas but these will depend on the post-mortem reports from the PKR candidates,” he told reporters last month. (BP)
