Hii King Chiong To Decide After EC’s Decision

17.05.2017--Dato Hii King Chiong declined to make any statement on whether to contest if a by-election for the Pujut state constituency was held. He said he would only comment until after the Election Commission (EC) has made its decision.

Hii added the EC would make its decision this Friday and he would come back (to Kuching) and later make his decision.

In response to the disqualification of Dr Ting Tiong Choon as a member of the State Legislative Assembly (DUN), Hii explained he had no other opinion as it was the decision of the DUN.

“We will wait for the EC’s decision. I will make a decision after that. I do not wish to make any further comment on this.”

In the last state election, Democratic Action Party’s (DAP) Dr Ting Tiong Choon won the Pujut seat with a majority of 1,759 votes in a four-cornered fight.

Nevertheless, Hii, as a direct Barisan Nasional (BN) candidate, also achieved a good result in the election after garnering 7,140 votes.
