Pairin faces brother in Keningau

21st April, 2013

KENINGAU: PBS president Tan Sri Joseph Pairin Kitingan is again facing his younger brother Datuk Dr Jeffrey Kitingan in a three-cornered contest in Keningau.

The third candidate is Stephen Sandor of PKR.

Returning officer Amat Mohd Yusof announced the names of the three candidates at about 10.30am after completion of the nomination process held at the Keningau community hall here.

This is the second time Huguan Siou Pairin faces his brother in an election.

In 2008, Pairin polled 14,589 votes to beat Jeffrey who is now contesting as a STAR candidate with a 4,274-vote majority.

Jeffrey obtained 10,334 votes.

Pairin is also defending his Tambunan state seat and this time, he faces four other candidates – one each from PKR and STAR and two independent candidates.

PKR is represented by Wilred Win Bin Ponil while STAR fielded Nestor Joannes. The two independent candidates are Koh Kui Tze and Justin bin Yonsoding.

In 2008, Pairin won the Tambunan seat after polling 5,601 votes.

The losers were PKR’s Moses @ Mozes Michael Iking (2,820 votes) and independent candidate Koh who only obtained 157 votes.
