Four years have passed since he submitted his election petition to the Supreme Court. The petition called for a recount of the votes cast in the legislative elections of 7 November 2019 by Gilbert Bablee, a majority MP, and himself.
Although the case was due to start again on Tuesday 3 September, following the retirement of Judge Benjamin Marie Joseph (who had heard the case), Mr Gavin Glover, Senior Counsel and lawyer for Cader Sayed-Hossen, informed the new bench, comprising Senior Puisne Judge Nirmala Devat and Judge David Chan Kan Cheong, that he was abandoning the case. This, after explaining to his client that the chances of a speedy verdict in the case are non-existent.
Especially after Gilbert Bablee’s lawyers decided to raise a motion, which was heard at the first hearing in 2020. In the absence of objections from the other parties, the election petition was thus struck out.
