#prnsarawak Both DAP and PKR are battling it out on 6 fronts in Sarawak, tearing up any earlier agreements made prior to nomination day.

Bukit Kitang will be the site of one of these clashes, where PKR's Voon Shiak Ni will battle it out with DAP's Abdul Aziz Isa.

Abdul Aziz was slated to be DAP's candidate in Stakan, but at the last minute, was sent to Bukit Kitang, which will see a five-way tussle.

Apart from Abdul Aziz and Voon, also in the ring are Lo Khere Chiang from BN and Independents Sulaiman Kadir and Othman Bojeng.

Other seats which will see the 2 opposition heavyweights vying against each other include Ngemah, Murum, Simanggang, Mulu and Mambong.

For your information the state election will be seeing 27 three-cornered fights, 12 four-cornered and 5 five-cornered contests.

Another party from Pakatan Harapan, Amanah, which split off from PAS, will also face off with their former friends from the Islamic party in five of the state seats.

However, it is unlikely that both parties would have much of an impact, being seen as spoilers at best in the polls.


Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Zahid Hamidi when met by the media after visiting the nomination centres of Baleh, Pelagus and Bukit Goram, said, unresolved squabble over seats indicates the opposition is incapable of good governance.

Urging the people to reject the opposition, the Deputy Premier stressed that there is no reason for Sarawakians to support them as they come and go.

He added, in past elections, DAP concentrated on urban seats, but now it also field candidates in rural areas because they want to demonstrate that it has presence in the state.


There was a small commotion, which occurred at the Dewan Suarah Kapit today, just minutes before the nomination period ended.

One DAP supporter, believed to be from Subang Jaya branch, had provoked some BN supporters when they saw the opposition supporter entered the nomination centre.

Sensing that it would be dangerous to step out of the centre's gate as it has been surrounded by the angry supporters, the police immediately accompany the DAP supporter to the police van, before speeding off.

However, the BN supporters then attacked the van once it is outside the gates of the centre, and shattered the window of the vehicle.

Returning Officer Zul Usup commented that the incident happened because the supporter did not understand the rules, which stated that unauthorized individuals are not allowed to go into the nomination centres, without a pass, that has been issued by the EC.
