KUCHING – Sarawak DAP said today it would field a candidate for the Pujut state by-election.
Its chairman, Chong Chieng Jen, said the party would only announce the name of the candidate after the Election Commission set the date for the by-election.
The seat fell vacant after the Sarawak State Legislative Assembly decided to disqualify the assemblyman, Dr Ting Tiong Choon of the DAP, for allegedly having Australian citizenship.
The EC has scheduled a meeting for Friday to set the date for the by-election. – BERNAMA
