Kuala Lumpur: The Federal Court has set 8 December 2020 to hear on a petition filed by Former Dewan Rakyat speaker Pandikar Amin Mulia and six other aggrieved parties questioning over the outcome of the 16th Sabah state elections.
In a letter, Apex court deputy registrar Mazuliana Abdul Rashid said the proceedings would be conducted through video conferencing and lawyers would submit their concern from their respective locations.
However, the hearing was scheduled for today, but it got postponed after an application by the governor to adjourn the meeting.
The joint petition is from the seats of Pintasan, Karambunai, Darau, Sindumin, Petagas and Kukusan.
An official from the Attorney-General’s chambers confirmed that the petition was signed in the election court within 21 days after the result was declared.
The AGC will be representing the officers, while the EC has been named as respondents to the action.
