KUALA LUMPUR — Nov. 18, 2019: The MCA’a Datuk Seri Wee Jeck Seng today took his oath as MP after winning back the Tanjung Piai seat in last Saturday’s by-election, a seat he had previously held for two terms in 2008 and 2013.
Wee beat Pakatan Harapan’s Karmaine Sardini by a massive 15,086 votes in a contest which had a voter turnout of only 38,815. The by-election followed the death of Pakatan’s Datuk Dr. Md. Farid Md. Rafik due to heart complications in September.
