KUALA LUMPUR, May 22 — Five-term Kelantan PAS lawmaker Ismail Yaacob died this morning at the Raja Perempuan Zainab II Hospital in Kota Bahru, paving the way for the seventh by-election since March last year. He was 60.

The Manek Urai assemblyman, who first won the seat in 1986, defeated Barisan Nasional’s Mohamed Zulkifli Omar by 1,352 votes in last year’s general election.

Ismail was also elected Kuala Krai PAS deputy chief at its annual general meeting recently.
