Pujut by-election on July 4, nomination fixed for June 20
The Election Commission announced that the Pujut state seat by-election will be held on July 4, after its incumbent from DAP, Dr Ting Tiong Choon, was disqualified for purportedly having dual citizenship.
Nomination day has been fixed for June 20, paving the way for a 13-day campaign period.
On May 12, the Sarawak state assembly voted 70-10 in favour of Ting's removal.
Keep Malaysiakini independent!
Malaysiakini will be 18 this year. That we’ve survived this long is because of you.
Your support matters. A lot. Especially those who pay RM150 annually, RM288 biennially or RM388 triennially to keep Malaysiakini independent from government/opposition influence and corporate interests. Advertising alone will not keep Malaysiakini afloat.
Together, we’ve gone far. We’ve covered three prime ministers, four general elections, five Bersih rallies, and countless scandals. But the journey continues.
Help us deliver news and views that matter to Malaysians. Help us make a difference for Malaysia.
