Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim (PKR) has won the Permatang Pauh by-election with a stunning 15,671 vote majority considering the odds were against him.

In the last election, DS Wan Azizah polled 30,348 votes whilst Datuk Firdaus obtained 16,950 votes with a majority of 13,398 votes with voters turnout of 82.06%.

Anwar polled 31,195 votes to Datuk Arif Shah (BN)'s 15,524 votes, while the third candidate Hanafi Mamat (Akim) polled only 92 votes and lost his deposit.

Barisan Nasional candidate Datuk Arif Shah Omar Shah speculated that his loss in the by-election today was due to the low turnout of only 65% as well as the opposition propaganda and promises.

Chief Police Officer Deputy Comm Datuk Wira Ayub Yaakob said that reports on the alleged phantom voters have been received.

"The five buses brought to the police station. The case is investigated under 341 of the Penal Code," he told reporters.

He also added that Gopalakrishnan (MP for Padang Serai) has been detained to aid in the investigation.

When asked on the actions that will be taken as Gopalakrishnan and his sons were allegedly manhandled by the police, Ayub replied," They can make report (on this matter), and we'll investigate the allegations made."

Earlier, several PKR members had stopped five buses, which they believed to be ferrying about 200 phantom voters from Kulim to Butterworth on the Butterworth-Kulim Expressway, about 7km from Maktab Perguruan Tuanku Bainun.

On related matter, three Barisan Nasional buses that were brought to the Seberang Jaya police station for allegedly bringing in phantom voters, were found only transporting BN supporters.

Two of the buses were stopped by PKR supporters at Ara Kuda and then escorted by the police to the Seberang Jaya police station.

"The PKR supporters suspected the buses to have transported phantom voters to the by-election at about 3pm," he said in a press conference at the Bukit Mertajam police headquarters.

However, the two buses were empty and after initial investigations, it was found that they were used to transport supporters.

"In the second incident around 4pm, another bus was stopped by PKR supporters near the Bukit Mertajam Summit Hotel again for allegedly bringing in phantom voters from other states," he said.

He said the bus, containing 26 passengers, were also taken to the Seberang Jaya police station and after initial investigations, they were found to be supporters only.

"All three buses and the passengers and drivers were released about 30 minutes after it was brought to the police station," he said.

No one was injured in the incident.
