How many election petitions?

After the March 8, general elections several political leaders had openly declared that they would file petitions in the High Court seeking orders to nullify the nominations/results of several parliamentary and State constituencies.

The results of the 12th general elections had been gazetted on April 8, those leaders are now free to file their suits. According to the Election Commission, petitions must be filed not later than April 29, this year.

My Say:

The Kota Kinabalu MP seat was won by DAP's Dr Hiew King Cheu. Will Christina Liew of another opposition party Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) challenged Dr Hiew's victory? The DAP and PKR are both opposition parties and are coalition government in Perak, Selangor, Kedah, Penang and Kelantan.

Chairman of Sabah PKR Ansari has already made it clear that they will not challenge the victory of Hiew of DAP as he described the later as 'friends'.

So now it's for BN parties to respond.

...friends....after "colliding head-on"? We need a home-made opposition political organisation...which will be a part of Pakatan Rakyat!

...but then if Bn or Pakatan Rakyat appears to be the same piece of coin BUT with different appearances then we Sabahans....ought to seek TOTAL INDEPENDENCE! ......small is beautiful! Sabah's ''young turks''...a superbly-bult breed!

.....the young turks...the SPARRA....the superbly-built new generation of Sabah's all-races composition who needs not BN nor Pakatan Rakyat to pursue their dream!
