Nik Abduh to be sworn in as senator on Sept 19

KUALA LUMPUR: Former Bachok MP Nik Mohamad Abduh Nik Abdul Aziz is set to take his oath as Senator on Tuesday (Sept 19).

The swearing-in ceremony is slated to take place in the Dewan Negara at 10am.

He was nominated by the Kelantan state assembly.

Nik Abduh will replace Mohamad Affandi Mohamad, whose term as senator ended on July 7.

The son of the former PAS spiritual leader, the late Tan Sri Nik Abdul Aziz Nik Mat, was dropped by PAS as a candidate for the 15th General Election.

Despite earlier assurances by PAS spiritual leader Datuk Hashim Jasin, Nik Abduh was not picked to contest.

The decision has since sparked allegations that the decision was made to suppress the legacy of Nik Abduh’s late father, who was also former Kelantan mentri besar and is still held in high regard by many.
