Two Kota Raja voters have urged the Election Commission (EC) to rename the Kota Alam Shah state constituency if the commission insists on proceeding with its proposal to redraw its electoral boundaries.

In addition, the proposed new boundaries for Kota Alam Shah did not overlap the existing boundaries at all.
“If they are not going to undo the damage they have done, then I will also argue that there must be a name change for Kota Alam Shah. Kota Alam Shah, if they are going to do a new one, cannot be called Kota Alam Shah […]
“Kota Alam Shah represents the royalty and it represents the royal town with the Alam Shah Palace inside Kota Alam Shah.
