The Permatang Pauh by-election, first and foremost, is about the policies of BN under Datuk Seri Abdullah Badawi and the integrity of Dato’ Seri Anwar Ibrahim and the changes that he promised to bring about for the nation.
Given the confirmed win, my heartiest tahniah must then go to Dato’ Seri Anwar Ibrahim for his hard-won success in Permatang Pauh.
