Initially, the Returning Officer had declared Kalthom Othman as the elected MP for Pasir Puteh at the night of 21 March 2004. However, BN candidate Che Min Che Ahmad filed his petition to nullify the election due to inconsistent figure in the vote counting documents. The Election Court had made such a shocked decision to declare him as the rightful winner on June 2004, 3 months after the 11th General Election. No by-election was held by the Election Commission of Malaysia.[7]
