EC: Tioman polling postponed to Dec 7, nomination on Nov 24

PUTRAJAYA, Nov 19 — Polling for the Tioman state seat, which could not proceed today following the death of Perikatan Nasional (PN) candidate, Md Yunus Ramli, early this morning, will be held on December 7.

Election Commission (EC) chairman, Tan Sri Abdul Ghani Salleh, in a statement today, said that nomination day is set for November 24, with early voting on December 3.

He said the EC received the Election Writ, regarding Md Yunus’ death, which was returned by the Rompin returning officer today.

“The campaigning period is set for 13 days starting after the announcement of contesting candidates on November 24 until 11.59 pm on December 6,” he said.

This means that polling for the Tioman state seat will be held simultaneously with the Padang Serai parliamentary seat, following the death of Pakatan Harapan (PH) candidate, M. Karupaiya, who was also the seat incumbent, last Wednesday.
