“Bandar Tun Razak ke Kulim tidaklah jauh
Kuala Kangsar Bandar Diraja

16 September di Putrajaya”

Kuala Kangar is the
26 August in Permatang Pauh
16 September in Putrajaya)
So reads the ‘pantun’ (Malay poem) printed on the banner which is hung alongside the railway tracks by the side of the main road in Kubang Ulu, Penanti, an area regarded as a stronghold of Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) de facto leader Anwar Ibrahim.
