Published on: Friday, April 20, 2018

Kota Kinabalu: The High Court will on May 7 hear the leave application for a judicial review filed by the secretary of Umno Zone 6 on the eligibility of Warisan President Datuk Shafie Apdal to stand as a candidate in the coming general election.

Judge Azhahari Kamal Ramli fixed the date on Thursday and directed that submissions from all parties be filed by May 4.

Datuk Mohd Ainal Abdul Fattah, who is also a committee member of Umno Semporna, named the Election Commission of Malaysia as the first respondent and Shafie as the second respondent.


Among others, Mohd Ainal, who is also a lawyer, is seeking for a mandamus order from the High Court to command the Election Commission to basically reject should Shafie be nominated in any seat in the 14th General Election.

He is also seeking a mandatory injunction against Shafie's nomination in the general election pending restitution of the missing RM7.5 billion during Shafie's tenure as Minister of Rural and Regional Development, which is currently being investigated by the MACC.
