KUCHING: Gabungan Parti Sarawak’s (GPS) Friday Belik is leading in Krian, according to early unofficial results.
Friday has 1,570 votes while the seat’s incumbent Datuk Ali Biju is in second place with 1,341 votes.
This is despite Ali announcing his withdrawal from the four-way contest in Krian – three days after he was nominated as an independent candidate.
Parti Sarawak Bersatu’s Musa Dinggat is third with 1,038 votes while Parti Bumi Kenyalang’s Danny Kuan has 89 votes.
Ali, who is from Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia, won the Krian seat in the last two elections as a PKR candidate.
