IPOH: Pantai Remis state assemblyman Nga Kor Ming has filed a notice to strike out an election petition filed against him with the High Court here. 

Barisan Nasional candidate Wong Chong Sang who lost to Nga in the recent general election, had on April 30 filed a petition seeking to nullify the election results of the state seat. 

Nga, in the notice, stated that the court should throw out the petition because Wong did not disclose that the latter had obtained a majority of votes as required under Section 35(d) of the Election Offences Act 1954. 

He also stated that all decisions made by the returning officer with reference to objections in the nomination papers were final and conclusive. 

Nga is represented by lawyers Ngeh Koo Ham and Nga Hock Cheh.
