Call not to hold elections during year end due to Haj period

KOTA BARU (NST, 27/9/2007): THE general election should not be held at the end of the year as many Muslims would be performing the Haj. State Exco member Datuk Husam Musa said the rights of pilgrims who were voters should not be denied.

The first plane carrying pilgrims to Mecca is due to depart on November 10.

“It would not be fair to deny them of the right to vote when the general election is held once in five years.”

Menteri Besar Datuk Nik Aziz Nik Mat had also called for the general election not to be held during the Haj season.
