The Election Commission will meet on Friday to decide on the Semenyih by-election, EC secretary Mohamed Elias Abu Bakar said today.

The special meeting would determine the dates for the writ of election, nomination and polling and the electoral rolls to be used, as well as other preparations for the by-election, he said in a statement.

Elias said EC chairperson Azhar Azizan Harun would chair the meeting at the commission's headquarters in Putrajaya.

He added that Selangor Legislative Assembly speaker Ng Suee Lim notified the EC yesterday of the vacant state seat.

Semenyih assemblyperson, Bakhtiar Mohd Nor of Bersatu, died of a heart attack on Jan 11. He was 57.

In the 14th general election last May, Bakhtiar polled 23,428 votes to beat candidates from BN, PAS and PSM to win by a majority of 8,964 votes.
