Nomination: Aug 16, Election: Aug 26

The election commission announced Permatang Pauh by-election held on Aug 26 (Tuesday) while the nomination day would be on Aug 16 (Saturday). This undoubtedly will become a great contest election in the Malaysia’s politics history. The moment will soon change the politics agenda of our country once again, more like a new revolution in the political agendas in our country. Permatang Pauh constituency has 58,450 registered voters. Racial breakdown with 69.4% Malay, 24.5% Chinese, 6.0% Indians and 0.1% others will vote together to choose their best candidate. The seat has been resigned by Datul Seri Wan Azizah Ismail to give her husband opportunity to enter the parliament after 10 years. Anwar confirmed that he will be contesting in the seat and about his rival, BN not yet decide the candidate to face the PKR leader.

Penang Chief Minister defined that the election will be a “mini tsunami” after the “huge tsunami” that happened in March 8 2008 which resulted the won of 5 states and denial of 2/3 BN’s majotity in parliament by Pakatan Rakyat. Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Najib Tun Razak stated that Permatang pauh is extremely hard for BN, but still they are confident that will be giving a tough fight to Anwar Ibrahim. Hope clean tactics used by the party politics that contesting in the election in order to respect people's rights to vote and protect the democracy system in Malaysia.

Bro they already start to use not so clean tactics. 26 aug is teusday, its working day. Many wont go voting so they can use phantom voters.

And the way is full of torn for Anwar. Tommorow he will be charged in court. I read Malaysia Today, raja petra got his point. ;)

But anyway we wait and see if Truth will prevails.
