    Malaysian opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim has won a landslide victory in a by-election in Penang.

    A high turnout saw his People's Justice Party winning 31,195 of 47,000 votes, the Election Commission said.

    The result returns Anwar to parliament after a decade's absence, and comes despite sex abuse charges he says are politically motivated.

    The 61-year-old has been trying to make his political comeback since a ban on seeking public office expired in April.

    He had been expected to win but the level of support for him was substantial -- gaining almost double the votes of his opponent, reports the BBC's Robin Brant from Penang.

    Critical point

    Anwar told the BBC the overwhelming by-election victory was a ""key point of departure"" for his coalition in its campaign to bring down the government.

    ""It is an endorsement of our policies and a rejection of the obsolete policies, the corrupt policies of the government,"" he said.

    He added that Malaysia's embattled Prime Minister Abdullah Badawi ""must take heed of the sentiments and the call of Malaysians"".

    Anwar defeated Arif Shah Omar of the ruling Barisan Nasional (National Front) coalition.

    Although only a single seat was at stake, the event transfixed Malaysians. While the result will not change the balance of power, it will strengthen Anwar's hand in his campaign to become the next prime minister, our correspondent adds.

    Thousands of rival supporters had flooded into the small area of Permatang Pauh to try to help or hinder Anwar, and there was a heavy police presence in Penang as votes were cast.

    ""The Malaysians consider this a critical point in our history, whether we get the mandate to chart a new course for Malaysia or we should just be happy with the same corrupt establishment,"" Anwar told reporters before the vote.

    Anwar was accused of immoral and corrupt conduct. Later in September, Anwar was arrested, beaten while in prison (by among others, the chief of police at the time), and charged with corrupt practices, in both legal and moral contexts, charges including obstruction of justice and sodomy. In April 1999, he was convicted of four counts of corruption and sentenced to six years in prison. In August 2000, Anwar was convicted of one count of sodomy and sentenced to nine years to run consecutively after his earlier six-year sentence. Both trials were viewed by domestic and international observers as unfair. Anwar's conviction on sodomy has since been overturned, and having completed his six-year sentence for corruption, he has since been released from prison.

    These just shows that fighters should keep fighting untill the very end and never give up.

    Dr. Mahathir Mohamed ndie aliye engineer story yote ya kusababishwa Anwar afungwe, hadi mwaka 1998 Anwar alikuwa ni maarufu sana katika siasa ya Malaysia akiwa ni waziri wa fedha na mwanachama wa chama tawala, umaarufu wake ulifikia kilele alipopewa cheo cha Deputy Prime Minister, na kukawa na kila dalili kuwa atachukua kiti cha uprime minister toka Dr. Mahathir mapema sana.

    Dr. Mahathir ambae alikuwa akiheshimika sana kipindi hicho alimwona Anwar ni tishio kwake, na hasa baada ya Anwar kutilia shaka biashara nyingi za Dr. huyo ambae alikuwa amezitawanya kwa watoto aliowa adapt. Vugu vugu la mabadiliko katika nchi ya Indonesia vilevile liliweka joto jingi kwa Dr. huyo kumfungulia mashaka ya kubambikia kwa Anwar na kupelekea kufungwa kwake.

    Sasa mrithi wa Dr. Mahathir, Bw. abdullah Ahmad Badawi atakuwa na wakati mgumu kuweza kuimili vishindo vya upinzani bungeni ambavyo vitakuwa vinaongozwa na Anwar aliyekaa nje ya siasa kwa miaka kumi kwa makosa ya kusingiziwa. Anwar tayali ameanza kuonyesha cheche zake pale alipowaongoza wabunge wa kambi ya upinzani kutoka nje ya bunge kupinga mswaada wa sheria ya jeshi la Polisi kuchukua DNA bila ridhaa ya mtuhumiwa.

    Mengi yatajitokeza katika siasa za Malaysia katika kipindi hiki kwani tayali kuna kutoelewana kati ya Dr. Mahathir na Badawi katika kuendesha chama tawala katika nchi hiyo.
