"Of course, Anwar Ibrahim."

An AFP reporter at the Penanti polling station where Anwar cast his ballot said that voting got under way peacefully, with good weather expected to increase turnout in a boost for the opposition leader.
Hundreds of his supporters shouted the opposition battle cry of "Reformasi" (reform) as Anwar walked out of the polling station here.
A group of three women in traditional Malay outfits and Muslim headscarves walked out of the voting centre smiling. Asked who they voted for, they said: "Of course, Anwar Ibrahim."
"Our grandparents, parents are all friends of Anwar's parents and grandparents, so we know all these allegations against him are untrue," said 42-year-old housewife Siti Ismail.
