Anwar to Swear

"All this controversy of oath will be resolved because I have now decided to take the oath," he quipped in referring to his oath-taking ceremony as a parliamentarian in the Parliament soon. Read the Malaysiakini report, here.

Official EC tally - Anwar Ibrahim got 31,195 votes, Arif Shah Omar Shah, 15,524, Hanafi Hamat, 92. Anwar won with a handsome majority of 15,671. The official voter turnout was 81.01%.

To the people of Permatang Pauh: Thank you.

Update at 1630 hrs: Malaysiakini reports, here, that Dewan Rakyat Speaker Pandikar Amin Mulia announced this morning that Anwar Ibrahim, the new member of parliament for Permatang Pauh, will be sworn in tomorrow. He is expected to be the new Opposition leader.


  1. it sure feels like Merdeka will bring a new meaning to Malaysia and its people..

  2. Now we can celebrate for New Malaysia. From my personal point of view is something that we can learn ' If we we want to be a leader of a group, tell them what we can do to help/improve etc & NEVER attack personality of other candidate' which is meaning you have pointless clue for winning
