According to media reports, the seat was vacant after its incumbent Mat Yusoff Abdul Ghani became a bankrupt.

The reports said the matter was confirmed in a letter received by by Datuk Abdullah Ya'kub from the Selangor Insolvency Department on May 28.

Abdullah had said that the state legal adviser also received a similar letter on May 21.
