Midway, Jalan Permatang Pauh forms a junction with Jalan Sama Gagah, after which it changes its course to continue southwests, to end at the Permatang Pauh roundabout.

The Parliamentary Seat of Permatang Pauh (as of 2015, represented by Wan Azizah Wan Ismail, PKR) comprises three state seats namely Seberang Jaya (Afif Bahardin, PKR), Permatang Pasir (Salleh Man, PAS) and Penanti (Norlela binti Ariffin, PKR).
