Zaid to file election petition to declare Hulu Selangor null and void
BY TEH ENG HOCK
PETALING JAYA: Former minister Datuk Zaid Ibrahim will file an election petition to declare the result of the Hulu Selangor by-election last Sunday as null and void.
He told reporters in a press conference at the PKR headquarters here on Wednesday that he would also sue Malay daily Utusan for defamation.
On Sunday, Zaid lost by 1,725 votes to Barisan Nasional’s P. Kamalanathan in a closely fought by-election.
The Opposition had since blamed his loss on excessive money politics, which Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak had denied.
