Kelantan Speaker declares rogue Bersatu rep's Nenggiri state seat vacant


PETALING JAYA: Kelantan state assembly Speaker Datuk Mohd Amar Nik Abdullah has declared that the Nenggiri state seat is vacant effective Wednesday (June 19).

The Nenggiri seat was held by rogue Bersatu assemblyman Mohd Azizi Abu Naim (pic).

Mohd Amar announced this at a press conference in Kota Baru on Wednesday.

He said that the decision was made after the Kelantan State Legislative Assembly received a written notice of Azizi's termination from Bersatu on June 13, Malay language daily Berita Harian reported.

“With this, I announce the unexpected vacancy of the Nenggiri seat represented by Azizi. The seat needs to be filled within 60 days of the Election Commission’s acknowledgement of the vacancy notice,” he said.

Mohd Azizi, who is also Gua Musang MP, was among the six Bersatu MPs and one assemblyman who had declared their support for Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim last year.
