Jeffrey to contest Keningau, Bingkor seats

KOTA KINABALU: Sabah State Reform Party (Star) chairman Datuk Dr Jeffrey Kitingan Wednesday confirmed that he will contest the Keningau parliamentary and Bingkor state seats in the 13th general election.

“Yes, it’s confirmed I would contest in Keningau and Bingkor in the coming polls,” he told Bernama.

In the 2008 election, he narrowly lost to his brother and Parti Bersatu Sabah (PBS) president Tan Sri Joseph Pairin Kitingan and Datuk Justin Guka of Barisan Nasional (BN) in Keningau parliamentary and Bingkor state seats, respectively.

Asked whether Star would field a candidate for the Tambunan state seat to take on Pairin who had declared his intention to defend the seat, Jeffrey said Star was still considering such a move -borneoinsider
