Voter turnout at the Port Dickson by-election had surpassed 17,000 people by the time Tan Sri Isa Samad, the only one of seven candidates eligible to vote, arrived at SK Linggi at 11.20am to exercise his constitutional right.
According to the Election Commission, 24% of the 68,317 voters had done their duties by 11am.
Isa, who has voted here each time he contested the Linggi state seat, said he was still confident of causing an upset.
“If I have rezeki, victory shall be mine,” he said when met outside the polling centre.
Asked if he would quit politics if he lost, Isa said he has not decided on this.
