Earlier today, Pakatan Harapan chairman and Tambun parliamentary seat hopeful Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim was seen queuing at SK Seri Penanti today to cast his vote around 9am.

Some netizens soon claimed that he was allowed to jump the queue and called him out for his behaviour.

According to Sinar Daily, Anwar was allegedly removed from the line and allowed to vote early because his presence attracted over 50 media practitioners, including foreign journalists, to the area.

To alleviate the crowd, the Seberang Perai Tengah District Police chief assistant commissioner Tan Cheng San gained approval from the Election Commission (EC) to allow Anwar to vote first.

Anwar managed to socialise with the other voters after casting his ballot and also issued an apology for cutting the queue.

I apologise that I have to cut to the front, if I didn’t reporters would be swarming this area. After voting I will go to Tambun to review the polling process and meet my supporters there.
