Permatang Pauh it shall be
Anwar Ibrahim, the opposition leader in the recently dissolved Parliament, reassured his supporters that he would defend his parliamentary seat of Permatang Pauh in the coming 13th General Elections.
“While my intention was to help the campaign in Perak and if I look at it rationally and strategically, it would have to be Tambun but because of the heart, soul, relationship and spirit of Permatang Pauh in their support for me, I have to defend my seat,” he said.
Anwar announced his decision at a ceramah at Taman Pauh amidst cheering from a crowd that I had estimated to be about 5,000 strong.
