Sarawak polls: Results for Mulu seat delayed, says EC chairman

KUCHING: Results for the Mulu seat have been delayed due to adverse weather conditions, says Datuk Abdul Ghani Salleh (pic).

The Election Commision chairman said bad weather had affected the vote tallying process.

He said the EC had taken into consideration the safety of election workers who have to use helicopters to fly ballot boxes to the official vote tallying centre for Mulu.

“Land connectivity has also been cut off,” he said.

“Therefore the results for Mulu will be announced as soon as the EC has received the ballot boxes,” he added.

As of 10.45pm on Dec 18, the official election results were announced for 81 seats, with Gabungan Parti Sarawak taking 75 seats, Parti Sarawak Bersatu winning four and DAP taking two.
