Mustapha ‘kidnapped’ Opposition candidates, his people returned unopposed

85 Sabah healthcare workers infected 10 days into Oct.

The snap Sabah election was on Sept 26. Today, it’s 14 days later.

I urged all voters in a blog piece to stay at home for 14 days.

Instead, people were going to Malaya and Sarawak from Sabah, and people from other parts of the country were entering Borneo.

It seems the gov’t doesn’t understand the virus.

Intelligence is the ability to learn from one’s own mistakes. Those who don’t have the ability to learn from their mistakes are not intelligent. Those who commit the same mistakes, in the hope that the results will be better this time, are insane.

Mental illness is not a medical definition, it’s legal. Only the court can declare someone insane. The court will refer the patient to a hospital for an evaluation before institutionalising, if necessary, for life to keep the public from harm.

No one can beat my blog pieces on the pandemic. If the gov’t wants to beat the pandemic, they should read my blog pieces on CV-19, or face the consequences.

Backdoor PM Abah Moo will soon become as unpopular in Sabah as Mahathir and Anwar Ibrahim.

Sabah is in a dire situation. The PTI areas have reportedly been cordoned off with barbed wire.

The QEH, for example, need staff from Malaya since their public healthcare staff are in quarantine.

All this was unnecessary.

Sabah was doing so well in keeping the pandemic under control. It was even looking forward to the return of Chinese tourists.

Suddenly, the snap polls was called, and the PTI with dubious ICs rushed to Sabah from neighbouring countries to vote. Moo is right. The PTI are responsible for the virus spike in Sabah.

The court could have stopped the snap Sabah polls but it refused to do so. It claimed the take on the pandemic was conjecture and speculation.

There were special circumstances to stop the polls or advise an alternative approach.

The candidates for the 73 seats could have been returned unopposed in three minutes.

All it took was for the contestants to agree that one of them be returned unopposed.

The winner will be the one who gets not the most votes from among the contestants but the one who gets at least 50 per cent of the votes.

If no one gets 50 per cent, there should be a runoff between the top two contestants.

The eventual winners would have provided a bundle of surprises.

Millions in funds for the election would have been saved.

The contestants in each seat could have been confined to the first 15 eligible citizens who collected nomination forms.

We would have known the winners on the day the nomination forms were supposed to be filed.

Yes, the law says an election must be held.

There’s no law which says candidates cannot be returned unopposed.

In fact, in a little digression, I remember that Mustapha allegedly kidnapped all Opposition candidates one election, and all his candidates were returned unopposed.

Razak even reportedly hailed it as a great victory and congratulated Mustapha.

Voters in snap Sabah polls should stay home 14 days.

If snap GE15 is held, I will stay home, like during snap Sabah polls.
