FEDERAL COURT OVERTURNED ELECTION COURT DECISION ON PENSIANGAN

The Federal Court in Kota Kinabalu this morning overturned an Election Court decision on 8 September to strip Pensiangan MP Tan Sri Joseph Kurup of the seat and declare it vacant, while declaring Tan Sri Kurup was duly elected to the parliamentary constituency of P182 Pensiangan.

The Federal Court held that there had not been any failure on the part of the Returning Officer (RO) to comply with the election laws.

Tan Sri Joseph Kurup retains as MP for P182 Pensiangan.
