Bung Moktar 'not siding anybody'
Kota Kinabalu (Daily Express): Kinabatangan Umno chief Datuk Bung Moktar Radin regretted that Sukau Assemblyman Saddi Abdul Rahman had accused him of defending the results of the party election during the division's annual delegates conference on Oct 18.
Stressing that he was not siding anybody, he said the candidates had offered themselves for the polls.
"All I was defending was to ensure my responsibility and duties are carried out, as entrusted to me by the party leadership," he said in a statement issued here, Saturday.
Bung Moktar, who was retained as divisional chief uncontested, described Saddi as a sour grape for failing to secure his intended position as deputy divisional chief.
Saddi polled 170 votes against 348 votes secured by former divisional secretary Jeffry Ariffin.
Saddi accused Bung Moktar of having "personal interest" in results to favour of Jeffrey, claiming that the election was a fraud "considering that one of the votes had a serial number bearing 1,230 while the actual number of delegates attending the meeting was only 551".
Saddi's representative subsequently lodged a police report at the Sandakan police station on Oct 19.
