Penang Chief Minister Chow Kon Yeow

GEORGE TOWN: The state is waiting for the impasse at the national level to be resolved before looking at how to handle the two seats left vacant by Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia assemblymen, says Chief Minister Chow Kon Yeow.

He said the state law was amended in 2012, where a seat can be declared vacant when an assemblyman resigns or quits from his party.“The state legal adviser has informed us that the provision to declare a seat vacant when an assemblyman resigns or quits from the party is in the state’s constitution and we will act accordingly, ” Chow told reporters yesterday.
