The Election Commission (EC) has banned Datuk C. Sivarraajh (pic) from becoming a candidate or voter in any election for the next five years.
As such, the MIC vice-president will not be able to run in the coming Cameron Highlands by-election.
Announcing this in a statement on Friday, EC chairman Azhar Azizan Harun said the decision was made after a careful study of the Election Court's decision on Nov 30.
Pahang Barisan Nasional (BN) chairman Datuk Seri Wan Rosdy Wan Ismail said they will hold an immediate discussion with the coalition top leadership as well as with Sivarraajh, following the EC’s decision.
