Maria Chin files judicial review bid to stop EC's redelineation

Bersih chairperson Maria Chin Abdullah has filed a judicial review application at the Kuala Lumpur High Court to stop the Election Commission (EC) from proceeding with the redelineation exercise.
The application filed on Monday by Messrs Ramrais and Partners has named the EC as the sole respondent.

Maria, a voter in the Petaling Jaya Utara constituency, is seeking a declaration that sufficient land mass information be furnished to the public for each parliamentary and state seats.
She has alleged that the EC had acted in bad faith and committed procedural impropriety when issuing the notice for redelineation to all constituencies.
Maria said the commission is withholding the information on land mass from the public which would only be revealed to the Parliament or state legislative assemblies later.
The matter came up for case management before Justice Hanipah Farikullah today.
