BUKIT MERTAJAM: Support for PKR de facto leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim has never wavered since he last contested and won the Permatang Pauh parliamentary seat 13 years ago, said PKR president Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail.
“The situation this morning is different from when he last walked here in 1995. Things have changed, but the support has never wavered. I am touched by the show of support for him.
Deja vu: Anwar and Dr Wan Azizah leaving the hall after submitting his nomination papers yesterday. They were accompanied by scores of Pakatan members and supporters.
“The only difference now is that the response is spontaneous and frenzied. I cannot say it is a feeling of déjà vu, but I am happy that he is contesting again.
“I was just holding the seat for him while he was away,” said the former Permatang Pauh MP who is Anwar’s wife. [more]
