Four-cornered fight for Cameron Highlands
Jan 12, 2019
Battleground Cameron Highlands
It will be a four-cornered fight in the Cameron Highlands by-election.
This, after BN's Ramli Mohd Nor, M. Manogaran from Pakatan Harapan, as well as independents Wong Seng Yee and Sallehudin Abdul Talib all filed their nomination papers this morning.
However, disputed MyPPP president Tan Sri M. Kayveas - who had earlier hinted at running for the Cameron Highlands seat - announced that he will not be contesting, and will instead support PH's candidate.
Polling day has been set for January 26th, and will follow a 14-day campaign period.
The by-election is being held after the Election Court earlier nullified the win by MIC vice-president Datuk C. Sivarraajh in GE14 due to corrupt practices.
Malaysian internet users have increasingly moved towards online video and voice calls as compared to traditional voice calls.

Meanwhile, the MCMC also found that about 87% of Malaysia’s population now use the internet compared to 76% two years ago.
Speaking of going online...
