– The Election Commission (EC) accepts the decision of the Kuching High Court that Dr Ting Tiong Choon remains as the Sarawak assemblyman for Pujut, said EC chairman Datuk Seri Mohd Hashim Abdullah.

In a statement today, he said, EC would take further action in line with the court’s decision.

“The EC will hold a special meeting on this matter to finalise the decision involving the dates that have been fixed prior to this,” he said.

The Kuching High Court today overturned the decision made by the Sarawak State Legislative Assembly on May 12 to disqualify Dr Ting Tiong Choon as Pujut assemblyman resulting in a vacancy for the seat.

Based on the decision, the court also decided that the status quo of the state assemblyman remained and his post had been reinstated, said Mohd Hashim. — Bernama
