Parti Keadilan Rakyat will be filing election petitions to challenge the results of at least four parliamentary constituencies in Sabah following the conclusion of the 12th general election. State Liaison Committee Chairman Hj Ansari Abdullah said the petitions, which they are expected to file after the results are gazetted, will challenge the validity of the results in Pensiangan, Papar, Tuaran and Kota Kinabalu. “We are still in the process of collecting evidence, but it will be more than sufficient,” he said when contacted yesterday. Keadilan first announced that they would file an election petition for the Pensiangan seat on Feb 25, a day after Nomination, following alleged unfair treatment by the returning officer (RO) at the nomination centre in Nabawan. Their claim was that their intended candidate, Danny Andipai, was disallowed from registering as a candidate on grounds that he was late despite Danny having already paid the RM15,000 deposit. Ansari also claimed that pamphlets were issued in both Papar and Tuaran, which depicted Keadilan vice president Datulc Dr Jeffrey Kitingan with a graphic of a Christian cross placed over his face. Ansari noted that the petitions will only be for parliamentary seats and not State seats, which he said they are “not interested” in pursuing as the voters are “not ready for change”.
