Senior Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob said the government would leave it to the Election Commission (EC) to decide whether the Gerik and Bugaya by-elections should go on as scheduled or not.

He made this comment after reporters asked him if the government would declare a state of emergency in both Gerik and Bugaya as well like what it did in Batu Sapi.

EC on Friday announced that the by-elections will be held simultaneously on Jan 16.
