PKR rep's election petition for Jempol dismissed

Bernama  |  Published:  |  Modified:

The Election Court in Seremban today allowed a preliminary objection by BN Jempol MP Mohd Salim Mohd Sharif.

The objection was to an election petition filed by PKR candidate Kamarulzaman Kamdias to quash the 14th general election result for the state constituency.

Judge Azimah Omar allowed the objection after finding the petition filed by Kamarulzaman defective and not in compliance with the Election Offences Act 1954.

“As such, the preliminary objection (by the first respondent) is allowed and the petition is dismissed,” she added.

Meanwhile, lawyer Mohd Hanif Kathri Abdulla, representing Kamarulzaman, said he would get instruction from his client whether or not to appeal against the decision.

Kamarulzaman filed the petition last June 12.

He named Salim, returning officer Zazali Salehudin and the Election Commission as the respondents.
