Jan 5, 2011 12:34:54 PM - thesundayleader.lk

The vacancy in parliament created by the demise of Sri Lanka Muslim Congress (SLMC) parliamentarian Noordeen Mashoor was today (5) filled by M.B.Muthalif Farook.

Farook took oaths as a parliamentarian today before Speaker Chamal Rajapaksa.

New MP Farook polled the next highest preferential votes in the Wanni District. However, although he contested the last general election under the UNP, Farook is not a member of the SLMC.
