Permatang Pauh byElection with ADIB RAWI YAHYA.

A by-election was held for the Permatang Pauh seat on May 7. The seat fell vacant after Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim was disqualified as MP after he was found guilty of sodomy. In the 2013 general election, Anwar won the seat with a majority of 11,721 votes beating Mazlan Ismail of Barisan Nasional. The Permatang Pauh by-election was contested by four candidates - PKR's Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail, UMNO's Suhaimi Sabudin, PRM's Azman Shah Othman and independent candidate Salleh Isahak.
