Updated from Malaysiakini at 8.57 pm:
Confirmed: Opposition takes Penang – 8.52pm
Unofficially, the opposition will form the state government in Penang for second time in history. The DAP-PKR-PAS combination has collectively won at least 21 seats out of the 40 seats.
I am so happy so I have to put this post.
You can find the latest Malaysian election result from Malaysiakini. Penangites! We are the winners!
I am going out to the main counting centre to celebrate with the others. But here is what is reported by Malaysiakini :
DAP closer to taking Penang – 8.05pm
Having unofficially won 17 of the 40 state seats in Penang, DAP is currently leading in six other seats with a wide margin. The party needs to pick up another four seats to take over government in the island state.
Blogger Jeff Ooi is winning too! He came, he conquered and he is going to Parliament. Bloggers Boleh!
Blogger Jeff Ooi has big lead in Jelutong – 8.05pm
DAP’s Jeff Ooi is leading in the Jelutong parliamentary seat and the party is also leading in all three state seats in Jelutong – Datuk Keramat, Sungai Pinang and Batu Lanchang.
Penangites, this is our winning! We won!
OK, OK, actually I am quite relieved that my past few days post about DAP and PKR bear fruit. If not, I pun tak tau mana mau lari ‘cos I dissed and ranted so much.
PENANG WINS! WE MADE THE RIGHT CHOICE!
Note : I watch the news on TV1 and all I saw are results from Sarawak that BN is leading all the way. And though they interviewed some EC officer here and he said he got 50% of the confirmed results, there is not a word on the results reflected by Malaysiakini. If we watch the TV, we will be in the dark.
