Update: Postal votes could be crucial in Bagan Pinang. According to the chart here, Pusasda (Pusat Latihan Asas Tentera Darat) Kem Si Rusa falls under this state assembly seat with close to 2,000 postal voters. In March last year, Harakah reported an alleged irregularity involving a Bagan Pinang postal voter here.
Bagan Pinang Adun Azman Md Noor (BN) passed away in Seremban, according to a tweet from Khairykj.
In the 2008 general election, the first-term assembly member won the seat with a 2,333-vote majority over his Pas rival, winning by a 6,430-4,097 margin.
That was a drop from the 4,411 BN majority in the 2004 general election.
It falls under the Teluk Kemang parliamentary seat held by PKR.
For the second time in eight by-elections (including Bagan Pinang) in the peninsula since the 2008 general election, a by-election will be held in a BN seat. Pas had overturned a 628-vote BN majority in the Kuala Terengganu parliamentary seat to win the seat by 2,631 votes in a by-election held in January.
So will it be 8-1 or 7-2 after this by-election?
