PD POLLS | Polling for the Port Dickson by-election closed at 5.30pm. Follow Malaysiakini's LIVE PAGE for the updates.
The by-election was a seven-way contest, which saw PKR president-elect Anwar Ibrahim locking horns with his former aide Mohd Saiful Bukhari Azlan and former Umno warlord Mohd Isa Abdul Samad.
The other four in the race were PAS' Mohd Nazari Mokhtar and independents Stevie Chan, Lau Seck Yan and Kan Chee Yuen.
The by-election was triggered by the controversial 'PD move', whereby the incumbent MP from PKR Danyal Balagopal Abdullah vacated the seat to facilitate Anwar's return to active politics.
Danyal won the seat with a comfortable 17,710-vote majority, or 59 percent of the total votes cast, against MIC's V Mogan and PAS' Mahfuz Roslan in the May 9 general election.
