PONTIAN (Nov 16): Barisan Nasional (BN) has reclaimed the Tanjung Piai Parliamentary seat from the ruling alliance Pakatan Harapan (PH) after its candidate Datuk Seri Dr Wee Jeck Seng won the six-cornered by-election today with a 15,086-vote majority.
The official results were announced by Tanjung Piai by-election returning officer Zulkifly Mohd Tahir at 9.16pm at Dewan Jubli Intan Sultan Ibrahim here.
The former two-term Tanjung Piai Member of Parliament polled 25,466 votes against the 10,380 garnered by his closest contender Karmaine Sardini of PH.
Four other candidates lost their deposits for securing less than one-eighth or 12.5% of the total votes.
Gerakan’s Wendy Subramaniam managed to get only 1,707 votes, followed by Datuk Dr Badhrulhisham Abdul Aziz of Berjasa (850), and two Independents, Dr Ang Chuan Lock (380) and Faridah Aryani Abdul Ghaffar (32).
