Kajang by-election: Polling March 23, Nomination March 11

KUALA LUMPUR: The by-election for the Kajang state seat in Selangor will be held on March 23, while March 11 has been set for nominations, Election Commission chairman Tan Sri Abdul Aziz Mohd Yusof said today.

The by-election, the third since the 2013 general election was triggered by the resignation of PKR assemblyman Lee Chin Cheh on January 27.

Opposition leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim is the Pakatan Rakyat candidate for the seat while the Barisan Nasional has yet to announce its candidate.

In the 2013 general election, PKR’s Lee garnered 19,571 votes followed by Lee Ban Seng of the BN with 12,747 votes. Mohamad Ismail of Berjasa obtained 1,014 votes.

The three independent candidates who contested the seat were Mohd Iwan Jefrey Abdul Majib (249 votes), Ong Yan Foo (85 votes) and Mohd Khalid Kassim (83 votes).

Chin Cheh won the seat with a comfortable 6,824-vote majority.
