SEOUL, June 2 (Yonhap) -- Ahn Cheol-soo, a former presidential candidate who was elected to the National Assembly in this week's parliamentary by-elections, fainted due apparently to fatigue during a thank-you tour in his electoral district and was taken to a hospital, aides said.

Ahn of the ruling People Power Party felt dizzy before fainting at 2:19 p.m. in his campaign vehicle during a tour of the Bundang-A district of Seongnam, just south of Seoul, they said.

After being taken to a hospital, Ahn had undergone basic tests and was now in stable condition, the aides said.
