PUTRAJAYA (May 15): The Chini state by-election in Pahang will be held on July 4 with nomination set for June 20 and early voting on June 30.
Election Commission chairman Datuk Azhar Azizan Harun announced the important dates at a press conference after the EC held a special meeting on the by-election here yesterday.

In the 14th general election (GE14) held in May 2018, Abu Bakar polled 10,027 votes to win the seat by a majority of 4,622 votes against PAS candidate Mohd Fadhil Noor Abdul Karim who obtained 5,405 votes and Mohamad Razali Ithnain of PKR (1,065 votes).
