What a win!

From Anilnetto

The final official majority is 15,671 votes. Anwar secured 31,195 votes; Ariff 15,524 votes and Akim’s Hanafi Mamat 92 votes (deposit lost).

And interestingly this is despite:-

BN pushing its whole election machinery to fight against one man (the TV, the newsprint, the money, the swearing, prominent spokesmen including top government officials – in the case of swearing);

Khairy making the arrogant remarks that they will bury Anwar’s political ambitions in this by election;

The sodomy accusations against Anwar;

Tomorrow is D-Day for not only Anwar but the whole of Malaysia as well. Nothing said it better than this comment in Anilnetto:-

A stall-holder next to the Masjid Jamek told me: “Harap-harap kita dapat undi majoiriti 10-14,000 bang, 27 juta rakyat malaysia sedang menanti ini…(Hope to get a majority of 10-14,000, 27 million Malaysians are waiting…)

We need a brand new Malaysia, we been living in the “dark ages” for a long time now.… [Click to read the rest] “D-Day for Anwar”
