The Penanti by-election in Penang, which will see a four-cornered fight, has notched up several firsts as campaigning kicks off today.
This is the first time a state constituency will be having its third elections in 14 months.
Penanti voters went to the ballot box at the general election in March last year, then again at Permatang Pauh parliamentary by-election five months later, and now a by-election for the state seat.
