The by-election for Kedah’s Sungai Limau state seat will be held on November 4, with nomination day on October 23, the Election Commission (EC) announced today.
EC chairman Tan Sri Abdul Aziz Mohd Yusof said there will not be any early voting. There are 27,222 voters in the constituency.
The by-election is being held following the death of the Sungai Limau incumbent Tan Sri Azizan Razak last Thursday.
Azizan, from PAS, was a former Kedah menteri besar. He held the seat for five terms and in the last election he defeated his cousin, Fazillah Mohd Ali from Barisan Nasional, by a 2,774 vote majority. – October 3, 2013.
