Kemaman polls: Dr Sam thanks voters, says majority surpassed expectations

CHUKAI: Newly-elected Kemaman MP Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Samsuri Mokhtar thanks all Kemaman voters and the PAS and Bersatu machinery that had helped make his by-election campaign a success over the past two weeks.

The Terengganu Mentri Besar said the victory, with a majority of more than 37,000 votes, surpassed the expectations of leaders from both parties although the voter turnout was less than the expected 72%.

"My focus in Parliament, Insya Allah, will be on matters not only related to Kemaman but on Terengganu itself, on how we can contribute in various ways to Malaysia’s well-being,” he said.

Barisan Nasional candidate retired general Tan Sri Raja Mohamed Affandi Raja Mohamed Noor, on the other hand, congratulated Ahmad Samsuri and PAS on their victory and thanked the 27,778 Kemaman voters who had voted for him as well as the entire Umno, BN and unity government machinery that supported him in the campaign period.

"We can only put in the effort, and I leave the rest to Allah SWT,” he said in a statement Saturday (Dec 2).
