KOTA KINABALU: A third petition in Sabah seeking to annul the results of the Ranau parliamentary election won by Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Tan Sri Bernard Dompok has been filed at the High Court registry here. 

Defeated Ranau independent candidate Ruhimin Adzim alias Ruhimin Ajim filed the petition on April 30 and served a writ of the petition at the High Court registry here yesterday. 

Ruhimin, who personally filed the documents at the court, named Dompok, who was the Barisan Nasional candidate, and returning officer Amri Suratman, as the first and second respondents respectively in the petition. 

Ruhimin alleged in his petition that Dompok or his agents had committed corrupt practices by distributing money and water tanks to voters on or before polling day and allowing voters to take ballot papers out of polling stations. 

In the polls, Dompok, who secured 7,547 votes in the constituency of 27,211 voters, defeated three other contenders including Ruhimin who obtained 6,160 votes.
