This Malaysiakini report http://www.malaysiakini.com/news/98051 headlined “Trouble also brewing in Bukit Selambau.” UMNO Merbok Divisional chairman is claiming the seat as he puts forward his case,” UMNO deserves the seat because the number of Malay voters in the area now exceeded 50 percent.
The breakdown as indicated by the chart undi.info by Malaysiakini has Malays at 50.2%,Indians 29.5% Chinese 19.3% and others at 1 %. Total voters in the Kedah State seat (N25) is 34977.
It seems that the EC will have their hands full as besides Bukit Selambau N25 there is also the Parliamentary seat of Bukit Gantang (P59). EC will be making the decision on Friday to fix the dates for these 2 byelections. Meanwhile one should not forget that the Pensiangan parliamentary seat which had been declared vacant by the Kota Kinabalu Election Court last year.
The court accepted an election petition by opposition Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) which sought for a declaration that Parti Bersatu Rakyat Sabah (PBRS) president Tan Sri Joseph Kurup’s win unopposed during the March 8, general elections was null and void.
Kurup had appealed to the Federal Court who will sit in Kota Kinabalu on Feb 12 and 13 to hear the appeal. (Extracted Source from Aki Momogun blogspot.)
