KOTA KINABALU: Parti Keadilan Nasional is prepared to work with any opposition party in Sabah to allow for straight fights against Barisan Nasional candidates in the next general election. 

Its president Datin Seri Dr Wan Azizah Ismail said that 'one-to-one' contests would be effective for the opposition to win seats in the state. 

“We want to avoid what happened in the Gaya by-election,” she said after attending the state Keadilan Chinese New Year gathering here on Saturday. 

Present at the function were Sabah Keadilan chairman Datin Saidatul Badrul Said and her deputy Christina Liew, who was the losing Keadilan candidate in the Oct 12 by-election. 

Both Keadilan and DAP fielded their own candidates to challenge Barisan’s Liew Teck Chan who secured 11,923 vote majority to retain the seat. 

The Gaya seat was declared vacant following the disqualification of incumbent Datuk Yong Teck Lee, the Sabah Progressive Party president. 

Wan Azizah said Keadilan’s chances of winning seats was good as it had gained the support of the people.
