Rivals Husam and Nasharuddin making up after results were announced

SHAH ALAM, 6 JUNE 2009: Incumbent PAS deputy president Nasharuddin Mat Isa beat his main challenger Datuk Husam Musa by (corrected) 199 votes to retain his position in a tight race fought on a pro-Umno versus pro-Pakatan Rakyat platform.

Nasharuddin, a religious teacher who has held the deputy presidency since 2005, won (corrected) 480 votes against Husam’s 281.

Husam, who is a Kelantan executive councillor and was party vice-president in the last term, went for broke in running against Nasharuddin.

A third challenger, Mohamad Sabu, garnered 261 votes.

Voting was conducted yesterday after 3pm until 6pm, with counting of ballots until around 2am today. Party elections director Datuk Mustaffa Ali said of the 1,044 delegates eligible to vote, only 1,026 ballots were cast. There were no recounts. There were also four spoilt votes for the deputy president’s ballot.

Mustaffa added that unofficial results which were circulating earlier that Husam had narrowly beat Nasharuddin “were not from us”.

In the vice-presidents’ race, outgoing PAS Youth chief Salahuddin Ayub, Pahang PAS commissioner Datuk Tuan Ibrahim Tuan Man, and party information chief Datuk Mahfuz Omar secured the three available seats.

Of the vice-presidents, only Tuan Ibrahim is a religious teacher. He is also a member of the Syura Council.

With party president Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang retaining his post uncontested, the results for the rest of PAS’s central posts are listed below.

    We have confirmation that Nasharuddin Mat Isa garnered 480 votes, and not 400 votes as we published in the story above. This means that Nasharuddin’s winning margin over Datuk Husam Musa is 199 votes, not 119 as reported. We will officially publish a correction as soon as we are able to. We truly regret this very human, but very glaring, error.

  2. Congratulations Dr. Lo’ Lo’, but it seems we’re seeing a shift towards conservatism and a pro-Umno stance.

    Clearly PAS chose to ignore the needs for change. The results are a big letdown. Time for me to leave the party. I have no faith on the integrity of the ulama.

    What a disappointment for Pakatan Rakyat’s partners. Datuk Husam Musa, no thanks to PAS delegates.
