KUALA LUMPUR: Wangsa Maju PKR candidate Datin Paduka Dr Tan Yee Kew's candicacy was in jeopardy after she forgot to bring her MyKad to the nomination centre at SMK Wangsa Melawati here.

An Election Commission (EC) officer denied her entry to the nomination centre because she could not produce her MyKad.

Tan then sat on a bench outside the nomination centre while her assistant went off to collect her MyKad.

It was believed that her MyKad was left inside a photocopy machine at her house in Subang Jaya.

An EC officer said that Tan would be allowed into the centre but she would need to produce her MyKad to process the registration as a candidate before 10am.

“Whether the process is approved or not, the returning officer will decide,” he added.

All’s well that ends well, however – Tan was allowed into the nomination centre using a photocopy and photograph of her original MyKad.
