The Election Commission (EC) has dismissed a proposal to set aside one-third of Dewan Rakyat seats to Sabah and Sarawak as agreed in the 1963 Malaysia Agreement, saying it will only stick to provisions in the Federal Constitution in carrying out its redelineation exercise.
Its chairman Tan Sri Abdul Aziz Mohd Yusof said any other agreement was not binding on the EC.
Lim who is also Gelang Patah MP supported calls by Sabah opposition leaders for one-third of Dewan Rakyat seats to be set aside for Sabah and Sarawak in line with the spirit of the 1963 accord.
