The Election Commission (EC) announced today that the Tioman election has been postponed to 7 December, Wednesday. Tioman is a state seat under the Rompin parliamentary constituency in Pahang.

The election will not be held together with today’s 15th General Election (GE15) polling day due to the death of Perikatan Nasional’s (PN) candidate for the seat, Md Yunus Ramli.

In a statement, EC chairman Tan Sri Abdul Ghani Salleh said nomination will be on 24 November (Thursday) and early voting is set for 3 December (Saturday).

Campaign period is 13 days from after nomination until 11.59pm 6 December.

Applications for postal votes can be made online from today until 22 November.

As for voter details, it will be made available from 23 November.

The other candidates for N.42 Tioman are Sulaiman Bakar (Independent), Osman Bakar (GTA-Pejuang), Mohd Fadzli Mohd Ramly (PH-Amanah), and Mohd Johari Husin (BN-Umno).

Candidates who have already been nominated will only need to be present for the purpose of the ballot paper draw, while new candidates will need to go through the usual full nomination process.

Md Yunus, from PAS, had previously contested the same seat in GE14 and served as Sungai Puteri PAS branch chief.

This is the second candidate to die during this election, the first being PH’s candidate in Padang Serai M. Karupaiya, who passed away on November 16 from heart complications while being treated at Kulim Hospital.
