KOTA KINABALU: A viral WhatsApp message claiming there are 16 people contesting the northern Tandek state seat in Kota Marudu is fake, says incumbent assemblyman Datuk Anita Baranting.
She said there were only six candidates vying for the seat.
Anita, who is a former Parti Bersatu Sabah member, is now contesting as an Independent against Barisan Nasional, Parti Cinta Sabah, Upko (Warisan Plus), Liberal Democratic Party and another Independent.
The 16th Sabah state polls will take place on Sept 26.
