Rizalman refuses to accept defeat

Former Tenom Member of Parliament Datuk Rizalman Abdullah is not accepting defeat in the Tenom Umno divisional election last Saturday held at the Chung Hwa Primary School's hall in Tenom.

He polled 133 and lost the division's chief post, which he had held for 17 years to Kemabong Assemblyman Datuk Rubin Balang who garnered 189 votes.

Rizalman alleged that he lost due to money politics and outside intervention to the poll and had lodged reports with the Anti-Corruption Agency.

He also claimed that about 100 delegates, who were his supporters, were given money and was asked to spend the weekend at a resort in Tuaran, near Kota Kinabalu
