Budiman Mohd Zohdi and Mastura Mohd Yazid took their oath as the new Members of Parliament for Sungai Besar and Kuala Kangsar, respectively in Parliament today.

The swearing-in ceremony was held before Dewan Rakyat speaker Pandikar Amin Mulia.

Budiman, 44, who is also Sungai Panjang assemblyperson, won the Sungai Besar parliamentary seat with a majority of 9,191 votes in a by-election held last June 18 following the death of its incumbent, Noriah Kasnon, also of BN, in a helicopter crash in Sarawak on May 5.

Budiman, born in Kampung Sungai Limau, Sungai Besar, graduated with a bachelor's degree in business administration from Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia and a master's degree in communications from Universiti Putra Malaysia (UPM).

Mastura, 55, won the Kuala Kangsar parliamentary seat with a majority of 6,969 votes in a by-election held on the same day, after the death of her husband, Wan Mohammad Khair-il Anuar Wan Ahmad, who was also killed in the same helicopter crash.

Mastura, who has four children, is a Lincoln's Inn graduate and practised as a lawyer for six years.
