KOTA BAHARU, July 10 (Bernama) -- The Election Court here today dismissed PAS's petition to cancel the result for the Selising state seat in the 13th General Election on May 5 which was won by the Barisan Nasional (BN).

Judge Datuk Zamani Abdul Rahim said he dismissed the petition because the petitioners failed to observe petitioning rules.

"This petition is not in order and as such dismissed with costs," he said in his judgement.

Zamani then ordered the petitioners to pay costs of RM30,000.

In that contest, the BN's Zulkifle Ali defeated Saiful Bahrim Mohamad of PAS and an independent candidate, Ibrahim Ismail, by a majority of 107 votes.
