We also received an article from our Sabah political Correspondent Bugi Wijaya
Its confirmed that Sabah Progressive Party (SAPP) will contest the Batu Sapi parliamentary seat in the 13th by-election to be held in Malaysia.
The seat which fell vacant with the demise of the incumbent Datuk Edmund Chong in a superbike accident involving a Mercedes Benz S320.
At this time, the party leadership are still in a meeting with the local CLC leaders on the plan for the by-election campaign.
Although no names on who will be representing SAPP in this contest, it is believed that a local leader will be picked.
As a party which practises non racial politics, a party leader who prefer to remain anonymous said that our candidate chosen is capable and we do not look at race as an issue. The important thing is he or she is ready to shoulder the challenge to serve the local community and bring about change to fulfil the party struggle to bring changes to Sabah political scenario.
Efforts to contact the other opposition leaders for their comment were not successful.
While SAPP have their candidate in mind, it is believe Sabah Pakatan Rakyat have yet to come to a consensus on their choice of candidate.
The interesting thing is that on the evening of polling day 4.11.2010 will see Prime Minister YAB Dato’ Sri Najib Tun Razak hosting a dinner for his Facebooks friends and on 5.11.2010 will witness the SAPP Congress.
Who will win? We will know then.
