Dr Jeffrey Kitingan dares to dream
Opposition Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) national vice-president Datuk Dr Jeffrey Kitingan has openly declared on Sunday that the party would wrest control of the State Government from the National Coalition (BN). He told a political gathering in Ranau that PKR was confident to win 42 of the 60 State seats. It is still 50-50 chances in the remaining 18 seats.
He also announced the cross-over of BN-Parti Bersatu Sabah former Divisional Chief for Tampasuk James Bagah and ex-Supreme Council member Jaibin Sindan to PKR.
I can not help but expressed my surprise over the confidence of PKR leaders, particularly, Dr Jeffrey of PKR chances in the forthcoming general elections.And more surprise is that PKR Sabah chief Ansari Abdullah has been keeping a low profile since taking over the post from Awang Tengah last month.
Another Opposition party, PASOK has also declared contesting in all the 60 seats and also confident of becoming the new Sabah State Government.
If these become a reality, there must be really something wrong with the present government. Let wait and see.
