The Penang government has filed a judicial review to challenge the Election Commission’s (EC) redelineation recommendations, and to declare them “invalid and unconstitutional”.
Lawyer Leong Cheok Keng, who is also Malim Nawar assemblyperson, was appointed by the state government to file the judicial review at the Penang High Court yesterday.
He said the judicial review must be filed within three months from the date of the recommendations which were gazetted on March 8. Tomorrow is the last day to apply for the review.
“We have also submitted an affidavit based on a report on the redelineation exercise produced by state think-tank Penang Institute, led by research fellow Wong Chin Huat,” said Leong, at a press conference in Komtar today.
