The Federal Court in Putrajaya today unanimously ruled the Election Commission’s (EC) Sarawak constituency redefinition exercise is valid.

The three-member bench led by Court of Appeal president justice Md Raus Sharif dismissed the leave application against the redefinition, saying the questions raised by the applicants were academic.

"None of the questions raised passed the threshold of Court of Juricature Act, 1964, " he said.
