GE15 results were predictable but the end showed how racial and religious the country has been with the North & East of the Peninsular going to the radial Perikatan Nasional (PN) whilst the West & South to Pakatan Harapan (PH) with Barisan Nasional (BN) picking the middle.

In the 2018 General Elections, the people of Malaysia went out in force and gave Pakatan Harapan a massive 113 parliamentary seats, and together with Warisan from Sabah, Pakatan Harapan formed the next Federal Government with a total of 121 seats. Barisan Nasional suffered its worst defeat by losing its hold on the Federal Government for the first time. Image source: Bloomberg / Yahoo Finance.
As far as I can remember, my late father has been voting for DAP every time the country had general elections. I personally was attracted to them not only for their mission to see a fair nation for all but also to YB Lim Kit Siang who was probably one of the first politicians to embrace the new school of using blogs and social media to share his political thoughts.

Frankly speaking, the Malacca state elections was an event that should NOT have happened in the first place and caused the taxpayers RM46 million. Image source: Wikipedia
It happened because 4 politicians from the ruling BN + PN coalition decided to rebel and pulled out their support for the existing State Government. Back then BN+PN had 14 seats against Pakatan’s 11 seats and once this happened, PH had one seat advantage that could have seen them taking over the state.
