Big win was unexpected, says Anwar

PORT DICKSON (Oct 13): Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim, newly-elected as the Port Dickson MP, said his big win in the by-election today was unexpected as he managed to enlarge his party’s majority for the seat in the 14th general election (GE14).

“To me, the result was beyond our expectation because the vote majority was very convincing and the popular vote was over 70%, compared to the GE14 at about 48%,” he told reporters at a press conference after the result was announced.
