Mohamad Hasan remains the state assemblyperson for Rantau until the Federal Court decides otherwise after hearing his appeal against the Election Court nullification of his election, said Negeri Sembilan State Assembly Speaker Zulkefly Mohamad Omar.

"The Election Commission (EC) has informed me that the Federal Court has set Feb 18 to hear the appeal," he told reporters after the state assembly adjourned following its three-day sitting.

Mohamad did not attend today’s sitting.

Yesterday, FMT reported that a lawyer, Lim Wei Jit, had questioned Mohamad’s attendance at the state assembly, saying he must comply with the court order unless he has obtained a stay of execution.
