The Port Klang state seat is under the Klang Parliamentary constituency. Two other seats are Pandamaran and Kota Alam Shah. Badrul Hisham beat independent candidate Nasir Mansor and Barisan Nasional’s Roselinda Abdul Jamil by a majority of 4,407 votes in the 2008 general election.
KLANG: The Port Klang state constituency in Selangor has hit the political rough seas which may trigger the country’s 15th by-election.
The seat has been declared vacant by state assembly Speaker Datuk Teng Chang Khim on grounds that its elected representative, Badrul Hisham Abdullah, had failed to attend assembly sittings for a stretch of six months since July 15 last year.
Badrul Hisham raised a wave of protests, claiming Teng was unfair because he did attend the opening ceremony of the last state assembly meeting in November last year.
> The Selangor government must ensure Badrul Hisham was really absent from assembly sittings for six months, said MCA president Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek;
> The Election Commission has yet to receive a vacancy notice from the state assembly; and
> Commission chairman Tan Sri Abdul Aziz Yusoff said the relevant laws would be looked into before the next course of action can be taken.
