Umno leader seeks to nullify GE15 result for Putrajaya seat

Putrajaya Umno division vice-chief Ahmad Faisal Abdul Karim says PN candidate Radzi Jidin bribed voters for their support.

(MalaysiaNow) – A voter in the Putrajaya parliamentary constitutency has filed a petition to nullify the 15th general election (GE15) result for the seat, which was won by Perikatan Nasional (PN) candidate Radzi Jidin, claiming that the MP bribed registered voters in the area for their votes.

Putrajaya Umno division vice-chief Ahmad Faisal Abdul Karim, 49, filed the petition at the Kuala Lumpur High Court on Jan 26 through Messrs Hafarizam Wan & Aisha Mubarak, naming Radzi, 45, as the respondent.

He is seeking a court order that Radzi should not be declared the winner of the election, held on Nov 19 last year, as his alleged bribes of RM150 induced voters to vote for him instead of for other candidates.

The bribes were allegedly discovered through a WhatsApp group on Nov 21 and Dec 21 last year, as well as Jan 4.
