He said that the Shah Alam branch involves an additional two hours on the second day of polling, in contrast to other branches that will undergo re-elections.

“For the Shah Alam branch, additional time will be given because in the previous polling, the polling time was closed earlier. So, we expect to add two hours and only those who have not voted are allowed to cast their ballots,” he said.
