PUTRAJAYA: Polling day for the Hulu Selangor by-election is set for April 25 and nomination of candidates is on April 17, said Election Commission chairman Tan Sri Aziz Yusof.
Candidates are given eight days to campaign, he said, but reminded all parties to observe the “cool down” period.
This will be the 10th by-election after the March 8, 2008 general election.
The by-election is called following the death of its MP Datuk Dr Zainal Abidin Ahmad from the PKR on March 25.
Zainal suffered from brain cancer.
In the 2008 general election, MIC deputy president Datuk G. Palanivel who was the four-term MP for the constituency lost by 198 votes to Dr Zainal.
