KUCHING: The state government is considering appealing against the recent High Court’s decision over the status of the Pujut state seat.

Chief Minister Datuk Amar Abang Johari Abang Openg said the state government will consult with the state Attorney-General (AG) Talat Mahmood Abdul Rashid before announcing its next course of action, next month.

“The state government respects the decision made by the High Court over the Pujut state seat.

“However, it is better for us to announce our next course of action after meeting with the state AG,” he told the reporters here.

The High Court yesterday restored DAP’s Dr Ting Tiong Choon as the Pujut state assemblyman and declared that there was no vacancy in the state seat.

Ting, 52, was sacked by the state legislative assembly last month, following a ministerial motion moved by state International Trade and E-Commerce Minister Datuk Seri Wong Soon Koh.
