MIRI: Rafizi Ramli is lead­ing in the Parti Kead­i­lan Rakyat (PKR) elec­tions in Miri, Sibuti and Lim­bang, whilst Datuk Seri Azmin Ali sees en­cour­ag­ing sup­port in Baram and Lawas.

Ac­cord­ing to a lo­cal PKR of­fi­cial, Rafizi re­ceived 63 votes in Miri over Azmin’s 61, 42 in Sibuti (over Azmin’s 15) and 132 in Lim­bang (over Azmin’s 40).

Azmin, on the other hand, had 100 votes in Baram over Rafizi’s 97, and 298 in Lawas (over Rafizi’s 79). Both are PKR deputy-pres­i­den­tial can­di­dates at na­tional level.

Mean­while, the Miri polls yes­ter­day wit­nessed Bol­han Sal­ihi amass­ing 101 votes to de­feat Wes­ley An­cho Mer­ing and Christina Rim­bor Kelit in the race for the deputy chair­man’s post.

Miri MP Dr Michael Teo re­tained his PKR Miri chair­man­ship un­con­tested.

Churchill Chukan’s 86 votes won over in­cum­bent Ricky Bakir’s 66 votes to be­come the branch’s vice-chair­man.

Ad­di­tion­ally, Ko­rina Mang was elected Miri PKR Women chief over Christina Rim­bor Kelit.

In Baram, Roland Egan re­tained his chair­man­ship un­con­tested.

For the deputy chair­man’s post, Boyce Ngau Anyi de­feated Paul Baya with 122 votes over 114, while Cather­ine Jok Uvang polled 129 votes to beat Elias Lipi Mat – both vy­ing for PKR Baram vice-chair­man’s post.

There are 1,707 PKR vot­ers in Miri, 2,638 in Baram, 340 in Sibuti, and 1,515 in both Lim­bang and Lawas.

Even so, the vot­ing rate in Miri was rather low as only 250 of the 1,707 PKR mem­bers had cast their vote.

In Sibuti, 97 out of 340 PKR mem­bers cast the bal­lots – 26 of which were counted as ‘doubt­ful votes’. This branch only voted for na­tional can­di­dates – the branch line-up re­mained the same.
