Amino Agos Suyub files an appeal in the Federal Court on grounds it is a novel question of law.
The Court of Appeal says the PKR candidate failed to show that returning officer Amino Agos Suyub is a public officer.
Lawyers have until Feb 7 to make their submissions on whether this is feasible, and if the retrial should be heard before another judge.
R Kengadharan says returning officers are expected to act without fear or favour, while Mohamed Rafique Rashid Ali calls the judgment a timely reminder of the need to uphold the rule of law.
Muhammad Rafique Rashid Ali accuses returning officer Amino Agos Suyub of acting in bad faith by refusing PKR's Rantau candidate entry to the nomination centre before GE14.
The Court of Appeal says it may not have the jurisdiction to hear the contempt proceedings as the matter originated from an election court.
