The Jelutong parliamentary seat was last held by Datuk Lee Kah Choon, who is contesting the state seat of Machang Bubuk in this election. He won the seat by more than 7500 majority in the last election.
Taking over his seat is Dr Thor Teong Gee, a medical doctor and a Gerakan youth member. Dr Thor is contesting in the election for the first time.
His opponent is none other than a popular blogger turned politician, Jeff Ooi. Jeff is an IT consultant and a writer. He just published his first book titled "i-Witness".
This is a seat to watch in Penang. Considered Gerakan's two pillars of strength in the last two elections, we are witnessing a keen contest from the two candidates. Both are very good candidates and voters will be having a hard time choosing.
