Anwar wins Permatang Pauh!Posted: August 27, 2008
And with a bigger majority too!
According to Haris:
9.13pm : Din Merican reporting from the counting centre
Final unofficial ( whatever that means ) figures
Votes in favour of Anwar -31,579
Votes for Arif – 16,045
Translates into approximately 15,000 majority.
If that ain’t a clear enough message to the BN that they ain’t wanted no more, then they probably won’t get any message at all.
Thank you to the good people of Permatang Pauh who came out to vote despite the rain and horrible traffic jams. You did good.
And I have to say, the People’s Parliament lived up to it’s name. Thank you so much for keeping us rakyat in the know.
Hidup Barisan Rakyat!
