Final results for Malaysia’s 12th General Election…
Parliamentary seats: BN (140), PR (82: DAP-28, PAS-23, PKR-31)
States won by DAP-PAS-PKR: Kedah, Penang, Kelantan, Perak and Selangor.
Just like many other Malaysians, I had been staying up late after the polling day to read the latest results… with waves of surprises pouring in.
Frankly, I was shocked by the outcome. I thought that the non-BN parties would have a chance to deny the 2/3 BN majority for parliamentary seats, but I didn’t really expect it to happen. The real surprise for me is that BN is losing five states, especially in Selangor. It’s totally out of my expectation.
For better or worst, we will be having a new Malaysia that we have never seen before… let’s hope for the best.
