KUALA TERENGGANU, Aug 2- The Election Court here has rejected with costs the petitions by PAS to declare the 13th general election (GE13) results for the Kuala Berang and Hulu Besut state seats won by the Barisan Nasional (BN) as null and void.

ge13-malaysia-general-election-ballot-box1Judge Datuk Seri Mariana Yahya rejected the petitions on grounds that the petitioners failed to comply with Regulation 9 of the Election Petition Rules 1954.

The judge ordered the petitioner for Kuala Berang result to pay RM50,000 to Kuala Berang assemblyman Datuk Tengku Putera Tengku Awang and RM50,000 each to the returning officer and the Election Commission.
