In the eve of the Permatang Pauh Parliamentary by-election, surfers and political enthusiasts have been flooding the site. I won't be surprise if Malaysia-Today is having the same problem soon. But it's good news as it show that those two sites do have authority and strong following. They have more trustable information compare to those coming from RTM or Ministry of Information.

Everyone seems to dig into MalaysiaKini or Malaysia-Today to get the hottest and the latest scoops on the election campaign at Permatang Pauh. Voting will be in a few hours from now. For sure, the snippets from both side will have some bearing on the choice of candidate at the election booth.

Below are the latest snippets from MalaysiaKini on the eve of the Permatang Pauh by-election:
