M Update, 5/3/2019 – The Election Commission (EC) will have a special meeting on Wednesday (March 6) to determine the date of the Rantau state by-election in Negri Sembilan. EC secretary Datuk Mohamed Elias Abu Bakar said in a statement on Monday (March 4) that the meeting would be chaired by EC chairman Azhar Azizan Harun.
In GE14, Mohamad was declared the winner of the seat after his Pakatan Harapan opponent, Dr S. Streram of PKR, was prohibited from entering the nomination centre to submit his nomination papers because he did not have a pass issued by the EC. The Federal Court had dismissed an appeal filed by Datuk Seri Mohamad Hasan to set aside the Nov 16 Seremban Election Court decision declaring his unopposed victory in the 14th General Election as null and void.
