Anwar Ibrahim retained his Permatang Pauh seat but the Pakatan Rakyat coalition of which he is (was?) de facto leader lost in the 13th General Election yesterday [BN Rules - mole.my]. As Anwar himself has said he would quit politics if he does not get elected as Malaysia's new Prime Minister today, I take this opportunity to wish him happy retirement and all the best in his new endeavors.
