PAS' Wahid wins KT by-election

KUALA TERENGGANU: PAS wrested the Kuala Terengganu Parliamentary seat from Barisan Nasional with a majority of 2,631.

PAS candidate Mohd Abdul Wahid Endut garnered a total 32,883 votes compared to Barisan Datuk Wan Ahmad Farid Wan Salleh, who got 30,252 votes.

There were 665 spoilt votes.

With this victory the Opposition now has 82 seats in Parliament. Barisan now has 137 and the remaining three seats are held by Independents.

This is a major blow for BN which used the mainstream media to it's max. It sure backfired as I for one was damn pissed with the one-sided bias on tv and print. Score one more for PKR!
