Congratulations to Anwar Ibrahim.The people of Permatang Pauh have decided overwhelmingly to return him to Parliament.
Anwar garnered 31,195 v0tes giving him a majority of 2136 votes over his rival UMNO's Arif Shah who could have done better if not for his party's screwed up campaign style.
Anwar's majority was a slight improvement of those obtained by his wife, he garnered 2,136 more votes than her.
His victory came as no surprise and most Malaysians look forward to an exciting and colourful time in Parliament.
Let's hope with his presence in Parliament and as leader of the oppositions, there would be more check and balance in the government.
