Meanwhile, Judge Datuk Abdul Aziz Abdul Rahim will deliver judgement for the Api Api election petition on Sept 15, 2008.

The petition was filed on April 9, 2008 by Sabah PKR deputy head Christina Liew's agent Audrey Karen Barry, seeking to nullify Parti Bersatu Sabah (PBS) deputy president and Sabah Resources Development and Information Technology Minister Datuk Dr Yee Moh Chai's win in Api Api in the March 8, 2008 general elections.

In both cases, the petitioners sought to declare the elections' results null and void due to various breaches of the Election Offences Act 1954 and the Elections (Conduct of Election) Regulation 1981.
