KUALA LUMPUR:  The High Court has set Jan 5 to hear an objection on Sungai Siput Member of Parliament (MP) Dr Michael Jeyakumar Devaraj’s legal action for a mandamus order to compel the government to specify the procedure in disbursing funds from the Special Constituency Allocation.

Justice Datuk Aziah Ali fixed the date upon meeting the parties in chambers on Tuesday, Nov 30.

Senior Federal Counsel Suzana Atan, representing the respondents, told reporters that the Attorney-General’s Chambers had raised the preliminary objection on the grounds that there was no substance in Dr Jeyakumar’s application, as well as abuse of the court process.

Dr Jeyakumar’s counsel, Datuk S. Ambiga, said she needed time to reply to the chambers’s submissions on the objection which was served on her Tuesday morning.

On Oct 29, the Parti Sosialis Malaysia official filed the leave application for a judicial review against the Government and two others, among others to seek a declaration that the special constituency allocation must be provided to all MPs equally, in accordance with Article 8 (1) of the Federal Constitution. – Bernama
