This Malaysiakini report http://www.malaysiakini.com/news/88579 headlines”Anwar Gets Bigger Majority” and Anwar is the new Parliamentarian P44 from Permatang Pauh.
I would not be surprised Anwar goes to the bathroom first, closed the door and shout,”I’M BACK..!!” . First of all I would like to congratulate him for winning this by-election. Anwar got 31,195 votes, Arif Shah, 15,524, Hanafi, 92. Anwar won with a majority of 15,671. Anyway, Anwar has won more than what his wife got of 13398 votes.
It was a tough fight for all concerned and a winner has emerged and declared. There will be many political analysis and of course post mortem but for now the Winner and Losers of this byelection will TRY to have a good nights sleep and recoup.The many party members involved will have earned their well deserved rests. Thanks for a Memorable Permatang pauh by election.
