A by-election will be called for the Rantau state seat in Negeri Sembilan, after an election petition filed by former Mentri Besar Mohamad Hasan was dismissed by the Federal Court.

The Federal Court dismissed the petition by the Umno deputy president and the Election Commission on Monday.

Umno's Datuk Seri Mohamad Hasan won the Rantau seat uncontested in GE14, after as his sole challenger from Pakatan Harapan, Dr Streram Sinnasamy, failed to file his nomination papers after being denied entry into Dewan Sri Rembau.
