Court orders Ting restored as Pujut state rep
The Kuching High Court has restored Ting Tiong Choon as Pujut state assemblyperson in its decision delivered today.
In a Facebook post by Sarawak DAP secretary Alan Ling today, he said the judge ruled that Ting's disqualification was not valid for a number of reasons.
Ting was disqualified by the Sarawak State Assembly on May 12 for allegedly having Australian citizenship.
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.
