It goes without saying “An hour in politics is certainly a long time for the rural voters.”The PKR supporters knows that they need to be patient in the heat of the election. The intensity and the commitment shown by the candidates in garnering support was second to none. There were close calls of “eruption of fireworks” and also just a minor skimish of “shouts of disgusts“heard but cool heads by the PKR scrutineers prevented the cancellation of voting according to a PKR spokesman to audie61.
Balai Ringin the first Iban Majority Seat and Constituency saw a three way tussle on who deserves to head the division. PKR Wanita Chief Ibi Uding was challenged by Sarawak PKR Vice President Jimmy Donald and PKR Member Cobbold John.
The final tally of results Jimmy Donald heads the division with 84 votes with Udi Uding polling 76 votes while Cobbold only managed 10 with 2 spoit votes.
It is indeed a severe blow for the PKR Sarawak Wanita chief as she will need to reassess her strength on the ground.She will need to close ranks and remain hopeful that she will still be picked to stand as a candidate for the upcoming state elections in N25 Balai Ringin.
