KUALA LUMPUR: Umno Supreme Council will be scrutinising Barisan Nasional's heavy defeat to Perikatan Nasional in the Kemaman by-election held yesterday.

Party vice-president Datuk Seri Johari Abdul Ghani said that it was too early to ascertain the reason behind the defeat as the party had yet to obtain further details.

"In the meeting, we will see how we could have lost, worse than the one in the 15th General Election (GE15). We need to study it properly.

"The council will review it in depth on yesterday's result," he said when met at the 6th SMART College Convocation Ceremony here today.

Perikatan Nasional (PN) continues its dominance in Terengganu after Pas candidate Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Samsuri Mokhtar won the Kemaman parliamentary seat by-election yesterday.

He secured 64,998 votes, while Barisan Nasional's General (Rtd) Tan Sri Raja Mohamed Affandi Raja Mohamed Noor bagged 27,778 votes, a substantial majority of 37,220.

In the GE15, PN's candidate, Che Alias Hamid, secured a majority of 27,179 votes, defeating three other contenders.

BN's Datuk Seri Ahmad Said garnered 38,535 votes, while two other contenders were Rosli Ab. Ghani (Pejuang) and Hasuni Sudin (Pakatan Harapan) obtained 506 votes and 8,340 votes, respectively.
