Sabah head of the Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) Haji Ansari Abdullah said Danny Anthony Andipai will be Sabah's choice to contest should a by-election is held for the Pensiangan parliamentary seat.

"We (PKR) are happy, at last justice is done to us," Ansari told reporters after the Kota Kinabalu Election Court declared that Federal Rural and Regional Development Deputy Minister Tan Sri Joseph Kurup's win uncontested in Pensiangan during the March 8, 2008 general elections was null and void.

Kurup, who is Parti Bersatu Rakyat Sabah (PBRS) president, was not in court when Judge David Wong Dak Wah delivered his judgement.

While it is fair that Andipai should become the candidate however what would be the Federal Court's verdict should Kurup file for an appeal?

Personally I hope the courts would make a fair judgement that will restore some of its damaged credibility.

Just so that the courts don't feel bad; I wish ALL the government institutions would make efforts to restore the rakyat's confidence in them.
