Barisan Nasional falls to ‘Malaysian tsunami’

Photo: MalaysiaKini

May 9, 2018. This is the day Malaysians experienced the power of the ballot.

Anger towards the current administration had brought them out in large numbers to cast their votes in the historic 14th general election.

Few Malaysians would have thought they would live to see this day – the defeat of the formidable Umno-led BN/Alliance which had held unbroken power for 61 years.

This is the first time the country has witnessed a change of government since independence from the British in 1957.

Malaysia is probably the only country in the world, apart from a handful of communist states, to have not undergone a regime change.

Pakatan Harapan’s victory is even more remarkable because of the gerrymandering, the numerous attempts by the Election Commission to frustrate the opposition campaign, and the holding of the election in the middle of the week, which most likely resulted in a lower voter turnout.

The rout of BN was made possible by a Malaysian tsunami – a tide which comprised not just the major ethnic groups in the peninsula – Malays, Chinese and Indians – but also those in Sabah and Sarawak.

At the end of the day, the redelineation, which BN pushed through weeks before the election, backfired.

Voters, frustrated with various issues, made a beeline at polling stations nationwide to reverse the efforts by BN and its functionaries to steal this election.

More importantly, this election witnessed a swing among the Malays in favour of the opposition despite the scare-mongering and race-baiting.

With this, Malaysia has taken the first step of becoming a normal country.

    boleh:
    may Sg also be blessed with such tsunami

    bro, 1st, Singaporeans sure can make such tsunami.

    bro, 2nd, Singaporeans shall make such tsunami.

    bro, 3rd, Singaporeans make tsunami on their own, without need of Wouldn’t Go, goh chock tong.

    INDIAN is malay. INSIDE 200m is not within 200m. GST to go up to 9%. HDB value goes to zero at end of lease. own brother and own sister tell truth about abuse of power. own nephew run road to USA. water hike 30%. large number of jobless local born at 40+ 50+ 60+. any one of these already sufficient to make tsunami. in 2018 INTERNET age, tsunami sure to happen.

    when pap Ljs and pap Cbs fail to form government, there shall not be revenge. because Singaporeans are law abiding humans, unlike the pap Ljs and pap Cbs who one pap law two pap interpretations.

    BUT every one of them pap Ljs and pap Cbs shall be investigated for abuse of power, whether by omission or by commission.

    we shall run by rule of law not revenge.

    if any pap Lj or pap Cb runs road, there is INTERPOL.

    Pinky will definitely call for a Cabinet meeting as soon as possible to ponder and discuss with his “wise” croonies on the implications of the opposition Harapan’s victory!
    It will definitely be a stigma in the PAP’s minds and especially so with the PM as there will be some rippling effect on the next GE which is scheduled to be on 2019/2020!
    What ever happens in Malaysia will rouse the sentiments of Singaporean voters!

    Aftermath of the Malaysian Tsunami might be a nightmare for Mai Hum and seatwarmer Hum Kar Chan aka Bugs Bunny Chan. Already snubbed by President XJP on OBOR, shown the LOONG Big Middle Finger by D Trump on TPP, SinKapore is already Kenna checked and halted in the relentless effort and bulldozing by Mai Hum to GROW the economy AT ALL COSTS! All Mai Hum and Gang Dream and Effort(influx of FTs and mega projects such as T5 and Tuas Mega Port, BTO, mega malls, etc)were formulated and planned donkey years ago, NOT predicting and expecting OBOR and Trump’s LOONG Big Middle Finger, period! Soon, Dr M may also want to display his LOONG alto a bit weak Middle Finger at Mai Hum too. He may suspend the HRS from KL-SinKapore project! Many more things and headaches for the World Highest Pay Pee-M. It’s karma and retribution for the Lee Kayu FAMILEE. Good show Akan datang. Popcorn and champagne time for LOONG suffering Singaporean!

    NAJIB HAS GONE DOWN INTO HISTORY as a disgraceful failure of epic proportion. He has successfully decimated the party that RULED MALAYSIA FOR 60 YEARS & supported him until yesterday.

    Political longevity breeds incompetence, corruption, arrogance and cancerous failures in public policy-making totally ignored by self-serving politicians.

    Smart Malaysians have RIGHTLY decided that CHANGE is necessary for national survival and salvation – THE PRESERVATION OF STABILITY AND STATUS QUO (before this election) is life-ending for their nation and their collective shared future.

    CLAP, CLAP, CLAP.

  • Patriot:

    a few things stand in the way of the opposition here being voted for, much more of becoming the govt:
    1. the opposition is splintered and not only refuses to work together,
    but also runs each other down
    2. the man with possibly the best potential – certainly the charisma – to lead the country has been slimed upside down
    3. too few are aware of this country’s real situation and believe too many claims by the govt
    4. too many don’t see the need for trying out alternatives, so we have some kind of backup in case of any eventuality
    5. singaporeans, unlike malaysins, simply don’t have the guts to vote for alternatives.

    yes it’ll be exciting times if the PAP is not the govt. we’ve all seen what
    happens when a GRC (aljunied) is “lost”. on top of that, the army has been put in place and Will create trouble. that all this will happen indicates we don’t have responsible leaders. the alternative, however, is to continue being trampled on and watching your life and your home being destroyed.

    Malaysian Tsunami is led by both veteran and youngster who care for their country. They have a COMMON objective which is to FIGHT FOR CHANGE and return the country to be run according to the RULE OF LAW! And they have achieved that with Heaven Blessing! Veterans are patriotic indivials like Dr M, Anwar Ibrahim, Tun Diam, Ms Faridah, etc. Youngsters are great individuals like Nurul Izzah, Hannah Yeoh, etc. Btw just compare the great speech and comments made by Ms Yeoh with the Craps made frequently by Jamban Lady Lee BW. One that make people admire and appreciate while thE other one make people boil and go away with disgust! When the news that HP has won the GE14, Think DPM Thaman has made the right and appropriate move by commenting the NEED TO CHANGE! It has Hidden Meaning for the One Hidden Hand that covers the whole sky in SinKapore! Big Nose Teo and 69.9%, What do you think?

  • arrogance gets defeated:

    BN has learnt all the political taboos from PAP and comes to its end finally having controlled the nation since independence. Arrogance and increasing opacity under prematured fear indoctrination like Lee nepotic Singapore, incomplete elimination of opposition which of course is impossible with rather safe checks and balances in the presence of oppsition members has led to its downfall. Mahatir, despite of whatever has been piling on him truth or falsehood, sill command the respect of the Malaysians for his definitive pro Malaysian policy even though strongly biased to the Malay community and his well known outrage against the white supremacy and won the day even at 91. His love-hate relationship with Lee Sr can now be aptly decribed by the clich “who laughs last laugh best”. He does not need to threaten with return from the death as he hangs on and see what he doesn’t want to see corrected.
    It is sad that a man, who sweated and drained his brain with destruction over building a nepotic regime and ending up not long after his journey to battle with his destroyed enemies and comrades adverarial to his power in the nether world, landed up with his own son having to exile from the axes he bestowed to gorilla controlled taizi.
    Singaporeans undoutedly will be shaken out of their decades of indoctrinated stupor to know what have happened to their children even in their lifetime being bullied and humilated by the party they have trusted so long to work for their intersts and interests and not for the foreigners and their children. They must by now be totally disgusted by their arrogance of wealth and power they have stupidly entrusted to them time and time again and now are told to be more greedy, more hungry and more ruthless to steal the jobs from their foreign thrash they have imported to kick their butts as their revered lau lee has publicly insulted them and they have forgave and stick to their stupidity as their lau lee openly told internationally in his famous kick the butt statement that they are daft. PAP must be now desperately putting more wayang as initiated by the Indian registered but Malay by power declaration chief. Will Singaporeans really so stupid and blp than Malaysians to succumb to insults and arrogance of weakth and power and falsehood and gangsterism. eg grilling galsehood, isa, new papised isa, $8 Vs $50k medical charges lies, $10 chaitowkwei vs poor man chaitowkwei in dirty wet market food centre, greedy and thief, no problem in importing foreign pmets to replace Singaporeans, more taxes higher pay and benefits for bureaucrats and foreigners, hdb taken away, cpf flies like waste paper into hospital coffee etc etc. R Singaporeans that DAFT and so cowed by evil.
