An Exile Returns to Parliament.

After ten days of campaign; walking around, going places, shaking hands, waving at the masses, giving ceramahs, propagating and mud-slinging, finally, it came down to the populace of Permatang Pauh.

Just now, many witnessed over the internet and by word of mouth, that PKR de facto leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim has defeated his opponents, BN candidate Datuk Arif Shah Omar Shah and independent candidate Hanafi Hamat in the Permatang Pauh Parliamentary By-Election today.

And now, Anwar's back in Parliament after a decade of MIA. Let's just see if he can fulfill his promise of taking over the federal government.

Now, all eyes are (still) watching Malaysia.

I pity the eccentric Akim fellow who lost his RM15,000 deposit. Only secured 92 votes. *sigh*

Love & Peace!~
