Understanding P036 - Kuala Terengganu Parliamentary Constituency

What does the KT parliamentary seat look like on map? What are the state assembly seats (DUN)? How many voters are here and how have they voted in the past?

Background: Kuala Terengganu is a large parliamentary seat with 80,229 voters, split into four state assembly (DUN) seats. KT is larger than Permatang Pauh (P044), which contained 58,459 voters and 3 DUNS, where a by-election was held recently in August. The neighboring Marang (P037), green color in the map, is the only parliamentary seat held by PAS and the Opposition.

Under KT P036 itself during GE12, however, PAS won three out of the four DUNs, ie, N13 (Wakaf Mempelam), N15 (Ladang), and N16 (Batu Buruk), except N14 (Bandar). See http://undi.info/state/kt/2008/states.html. PAS won 8 out of the 32 DUNs in the state of Terengganu.
