The News is Out..!! 2 times DAP candidate for N19 Kepayan State Seat Stephen Jimbangan has joined UPKO. Bugi Wijay has filed this report in and he says “it looks like Pakatan grip on Sabah is slowly spinning out of Control.
It is a known fact that Jimbangan is the clear favourite to be retained by PR to contest the state seat again but in a twist of manouvering DAP circles have indicated to us that Dr.Edwin Bosi who was a former PKR member has joined DAP.
IT’S A REAL MERRY-GO-AROUND for PR candidates in Sabah says the source. Even PKR local candidates in Kepayan like Dr.Roland Chia a practising dentist was very unhappy with the current developments.
N19 which is part of P174 Penampang Parliament seat has been represented by 61 year old Khoo Keok Hai for the past two terms. The MP who is not internet savvy will need to rely heavily on ground sentiments to be retained. Many of his MP colleagues have advised him to use the FB,twitters,smses (all internet tools) to dispel negativeness on him as they enter the crucial part of campaign.
Will he listen or will he be caught offguard by PKR/DAP or SAPP?
The ground sources have speculated that this seat will see a three cornered fight between BN’s incumbent Edward Khoo,DAP or PKR candidate and SAPP information Chief Chong Pit Fah.
Who wins will determine how they embrace the social media and for the incumbent to just brush aside the importance of this media he better have answers when the final tally is counted.
Many are pushing Khoo not to use the same methods of campaigning as it will backfire.
