Former Malaysia Deputy Prime Minister Anwar Ibrahim is set to run for parliament during the next election, which will be no later than March 2009. [Bloomberg]

It will be interesting to see whether Malaysians will still welcome back the once influential leader, who was jailed in 1998 for some ridiculous reasons, very much a victim of stupid Malaysia politics.

Because of the jail terms Anwar will not be able to compete for parliament seats until 2008, perhaps just in time for the next election.
