KUALA LUMPUR (Bernama): The Tanjung Piai parliamentary by-election result on Saturday (Nov 16) will not weaken the spirit of Pakatan Harapan to continue working hard in providing the best service for the people.
Parti Amanah Negara president Mohamad Sabu said he had accepted the voters’ decision in the Tanjung Piai parliamentary seat by-election with open heart.
“The result calls for the Pakatan government to continue to improve its governance so that all efforts and initiatives implemented can be felt by the people.
“In addition, we will also take efforts to close ranks between the leaders of the parties in Pakatan and at the same time to intensify programmes to disseminate information to the people,” he said in a statement today.
The Tanjung Piai by-election saw Barisan Nasional candidate Dr Wee Jeck Seng win with a overwhelming 15,086-vote majority.
Wee, the former two-term Tanjung Piai MP, garnered a total of 25,466 votes against Pakatan candidate Karmaine Sardini who obtained 10,380 votes; Gerakan’s Wendy Subramaniam (1,707), followed by Datuk Dr Badhrulhisham Abdul Aziz of Berjasa (850) and two independents, Dr Ang Chuan Lock (380) and Faridah Aryani Abdul Ghaffar (32). – Bernama
