Hafiz Yatim (Malaysiakini)
MIC’s P Kamalanathan has won the first round in his bid to strike out Zaid Ibrahim’s petition against the Hulu Selangor by-election result.
NONEIn dismissing Zaid’s preliminary objection against Kamalanathan’s application to strike out the petition, Election judge Justice Azahar Mohamed ruled against the claim that Election Court had no jurisdiction to hear the matter.
“So tomorrow, I will hear the preliminary objection (to strike out Zaid’s suit) and the merits of the election petition tomorrow,” said the judge.
