More petitions

Consumers Association of Sabah and Labuan (Cash) president Datuk Patrick Sindu yesterday filed a petition at the High Court in Kota Kinabalu seeking an order to nullify the result of the Papar parliamentary constituency.

Sindu contested and lost as an Independent in the seat in the March 8, general elections. The winner was Barisan Nasional's Umno candidate Rosnah Rashid Sharlin. Two other candidates also lost.

He is seeking the order so as to make way for a by-election to be held.

Meanwhile, Cash deputy president Joshua Kong also filed a suit in the same court, almost the same time as Sindu, seeking court order to nulify all the results of the general elections.

Sindu and Kong claimed that the Election Commissions had conducted the elections not in accordance to election laws.

It is interesting to note that Sindu and Kong filed their respective suits themselves, without the services of lawyer.
