The man with the fattest wallet will rule.
PKR received another blow today when its candidate for the Gum Gum state seat, Mohaspa Mohd Hassan pulled out from a straight fight with BN candidate, Datuk Zakaria Mohs Idris. This means that BN has won another state seat uncontested.
Two independents have also pulled out of Tanjung Batu and Senallang state seats.

A betrayal for not being chosen: Jeffrey
Kota Kinabalu: Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) Vice President Datuk Dr Jeffrey Kitingan (pic) described his former Political Secretary Kanul Gindol's pullout from the party as shameful and an act of betrayal.
"Wherever they go after this, people will knowÉ as betrayers they should be ashamed of themselves," he said in a statement, Tuesday.
He was commenting on Kanul's announcement of resignation from PKR with immediate effect stating, among others, that he had lost confidence and trust in the party's leadership.
Jeffrey was disappointed with Kanul and other friends who left the party "to sleep with the enemy just because they were not chosen as candidates".
"It is obvious they didn't know the true meaning of our struggle in the first place. Their action proves they are more interested in pursuing personal interests."
Keadilan leaders and members should know the party is more important than individuals and that they should have consistency with the interest of the people at heart, he said.
"If you believe in something you should stick with it to the end, no matter what the internal problems are and whatever incentive may be offered by the enemy," said Jeffrey.
Jeffrey, who is also the PKR State Steering Committee chairman, said the party must have a system and disciplinary control. At the end of the day, the party leaders would have to nominate the candidates and those not selected would have to accept it gracefully.
"I also know one of the BN candidates in Tuaran has been telling the people in speeches that I was going to join the BN today. They can keep on dreaming. It looks like the BN candidate there has no other valid issue, so he has to tell lies to the people," he said.
According to him, Kanul was also not telling the truth or is ignorant about the status of the Tambunan Declaration that had long been approved and adopted by the Supreme Council.
It was adopted with a slight amendment to the last item, i.e. "Membenarkan Sabah menggaris agenda pembangunan dan ekonominya sendiri" (allowing Sabah to underline its own development and economic agendas) with the addition of "selaras dengan pembangunan dasar pusat" (in line with the federal development policy).
For someone who had betrayed his own brother, Joseph Pairin, the late Mark Koding, Pendikar Amin, Joseph Kurup and God knows how many more lesser known souls and to shamelessly denounced another person as a traitor is beyond comprehension.
