Nga, when announcing the newly-elected committee, said that this year’s election result was a convincing and formidable majority.

“We are humbled by the mandate given by the delegates,” said the three-term assemblyman.

In the party election, Nga’s team made a clean sweep after all 15 of them got more than 1,000 votes each.

Nga, who is Teluk Intan MP and Aulong assemblyman, ranked first in the list by garnering 1,228 votes while his cousin Ngeh, the Beruas MP, ranked sixth with 1,216 votes.

Batu Gajah MP V. Sivakumar shared the first ranking with Nga as he received the same number of votes.

Tebing Tinggi assemblyman Abdul Aziz Bari ranked third with 1,224 votes followed by Sungkai A. Sivanesan with 1,223 votes while Pantai Remis assemblyman Wong May Ing ranked fifth with 1,220 votes.

Kampar MP Thomas Su and Ipoh Barat MP M. Kulasegaran, who were leading the challenge for new faces in the state line-up, polled 550 and 540 votes respectively.

Other candidates from Su’s team only managed to garner less than 600 votes.
