The by-election for the state seat of Pujut in Sarawak will be held on July 4, the Election Commission (EC) decided today.

EC chairman Datuk Seri Mohd Hashim Abdullah said nomination for the by-election would be on June 20.

The dates were decided at a special meeting of the EC today.

The Pujut seat fell vacant on May 12 after the Sarawak Legislative Assembly disqualified state assemblyman Dr Ting Tiong Choon of the DAP, citing his alleged Australian citizenship. – Bernama
