Malacca Umno has filed an election petition at the High Court to challenge the outcome of the 14th general election in two state constituencies.
Malacca Umno liaison committee chairperson Idris Haron said the two state seats being challenged are Telok Mas and Rembia.
“We found that the candidate (Telok Mas) did not resign from his post (as lecturer) on nomination day which is a violation of the election rules.
"With (Rembia) let the lawyer deal with the matter first, I understand some matters will be raised,” he told reporters after opening the Tangga Batu umno Division Puteri delegates meeting at Pantai Puteri here today.
In GE14, PKR-Bersatu candidate Noor Effandi Ahmad won the Telok Mas state seat with a majority of 1,288 votes, and PKR candidate Muhammad Jailani Khamis won the Rembia state seat with a majority of 1,814 votes.
