Badrul fails to stop EC discussing Port Klang seat status

PETALING JAYA, Jan 28 — Badrul Hisham Abdullah has failed to get an interim order to stop the Election Commission (EC) from discussing the status of the Port Klang state seat which was declared vacant by the Selangor Speaker last week.

However, judge Suraya Othman said it did not mean that the EC should go ahead and discuss the issue ahead of a full hearing on February 7.

“The various quarters should act accordingly, especially the second defendant which is the EC, to only take action after the suit is heard on February 7,” Badrul’s lawyer Abu Bakar Isa Rahmat quoted her as saying when he met reporters.

The bid for an interim order was discussed in closed court.

Badrul’s other lawyer Wan Azmir Wan Majid explained the advice means the EC is not barred from meeting to discuss the status, but should refrain from doing so when it knows there is going to be a court hearing on February 7.
