Anwar remains the main crowd puller

Athi Shankar (Malaysiakini)
Pakatan Rakyat candidate Mohd Salleh Man, 55, contesting the Permatang Pasir by-election is from PAS.
He faces off Barisan Nasional and Umno challenger, Rohaizat Othman, 38, who is hogging the limelight for all the wrong reasons.
But candidates aside, there is one man who stands head and shoulders above others in Permatang Pasir state constituency – Permatang Pauh parliamentarian Anwar Ibrahim.
