Kuala Lumpur, May 4 (IANS) A Malaysian High Court on Friday dismissed a suit by People’s Justice Party’s Chua Tian Chang, who had challenged an Election Commission decision.

It dealt a heavy blow to Chua, who was attempting to hold on to his parliamentarian position in the upcoming May 9 polls, Xinhua news agency reported.

Chua failed to secure a nomination last week, after returning officer from the EC Anwar Mohd Zain rejected him based on a fine of $508.2, issued by a court last year for insulting a police officer.
