Datuk Hii files election petition to nullify Dr Ting’s win

Hii’s lawyer KY Lin filed the election petition this morning (June 16).

MIRI: Datuk Hii King Chiong, direct BN candidate for N 74 Pujut during the last state elections, filed an election petition at Miri High Court Registrar this morning (June 16) seeking to nullify the results.

He is petitioning the Election Court to declare DAP Dr Ting Tiong Choon’s win null and void on grounds of misrepresentation of his citizenship status and either declare him the winner by virtue of securing the second highest number of votes or a by-election excluding DAP.

Hii’s lawyer KY Lin filed the petition at about 11 am.

According to his lawyer, Hii’s petition is being filed on the grounds that Ting is an Australian citizen as his name is in the country’s electoral roll.
