Keningau: Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) Vice-President Datuk Dr Jeffrey Kitingan won the Pensiangan PKR top post after defeating incumbent Danny Anthony Andipai and another contender, Sabinus Sipin with a 71-vote majority.

Dr Jeffrey polled 176 votes while Andipai, 105 and Sabinus, five votes.

There were 14 spoiled votes.

Dr Jeffrey’s victory erased speculations that the former Yayasan Sabah Director would be defeated because Pensiangan PKR members were not particularly interested with “outside” leaders.

Affendy Hasbollah @ Tukang won the deputy chief’s position with 145 votes compared to former Nabawan People’s Development Leader, Gabriel Uwing, who won 130 votes.

The division’s election held at Kampung Takul saw some 300 delegates voting.
