What is administrative law in general? 

 When can natural justice be claimed?

Q. In the recent case of Nurul Rifayah bt Muhammad Iqbal & Ors v Tan Sri Dato’ Hj Mahiaddin bin Md Yassin & Ors [2021] 12 MLJ 510 the voting rights has been reduced from 21 to 18 years old and will be taken effect starting from July 2021. However, it has been delayed till September 1, 2022 due to the Movement Control Order. This has affected the youth in Malaysia as the Malaysian youth organisation (UNDI 18) has been fighting for these issues. Does this sound fair to you? 

A. If you were in this position, the best way to deal with it is to request the court for a judicial review regarding the issue faced by you. However, there are a few steps that the court will look into before granting  judicial review. This will avoid frivolous or vexatious claims made by the appellant. Hence, O 53 r 2(4) of the Rules of Court 2012 will be read by the court during the two stage test to request leave from the court. Once the court sees nothing wrong with proceeding on the judicial review, leave will be granted. 

What are the remedies available for judicial review?
