Grand finale in Permatang Pauh

The huge PKR balloon, hanging in the dark skies, that greeted the thousands of visitors to the party’s ceramah at Jalan Baru in Permatang Pauh last night.


Many stalls were set up at the ceramah site. This one sold t-shirts for party diehards and fans.


And the Tok Guru brand of goodies too.


Take five between friends: Aliran president P. Ramakrishnan and Malaysia’s famous blogger Raja Petra.


The many, many, many thousands of people who braved the rain at the PKR ceramah.


The hovering police chopper that was jeered passionately by the ceramah crowd.


The man of the hour. Candidate Anwar Ibrahim, like his fellow PKR leaders and the rest of the Pakatan Rakyat leadership, constantly emphasised the importance of multiethnic politics for the future of the country. Also present at this ceramah were bigwigs from component parties of the Pakatan, such as Lim Guan Eng, Lim Kit Siang, Wan Azizah Wan Ismail, Husam Musa, Azmin Ali, Chong Eng, Chow Kon Yeow, Jeff Ooi, Nurul Izzah, Saifuddin Nasution and Jonson Chong, among others.
