Malaysiakini site is back and running on this site. I read that Malaysiakini is blocked? I also notice a big lapse in their reporting, the last being 4 am. I have just managed to get their site so let me paste some news over.
The Youtube video below is the press conference by DAP and PKR after the elections result were announced.

Penang CM: Guan Eng to be sworn in on Tuesday
Beh Lih Yi | Mar 9, 08 3:27pm
Newly-elected Air Putih state assemblyperson Lim Guan Eng will be sworn in as the Penang chief minister on Tuesday.
Talking to reporters today, Lim said that the outgoing CM Koh Tsu Koon wanted to be present at swearing in ceremony but he would not be able to attend if the function was held tomorrow.
Lim said that Koh wanted to be in Kuala Lumpur when Barisan Nasional chairperson Abdullah Ahmad Badawi forms the federal government.
Abdullah is expected to seek an audience with the King tomorrow for that purpose.
“As such we have to do it on Tuesday so that Koh can also be present,” said Lim, who is also the DAP secretary general.
Lim also won the Bagan parliamentary seat, leading the way for the opposition parties to complete an almost clean sweep in the state.
