Pakatan Harapan set to form new federal government of Malaysia (final)

Photo: MalaysiaKini

Despite vote counting in Malaysia’s GE 14 still ongoing, Dr Mahathir Mohamad, former Prime Minister and current chairperson of  Pakatan Harapan (PH) has claimed that the opposition coalition has garnered more than the required 112 parliamentary seats to form the next federal government of Malaysia.

Speaking at a packed press conference at the Sheraton Hotel in Petaling Jaya minutes before midnight on Wednesday, Dr Mahathir also claims that Harapan has captured 6 states, namely  Penang, Selangor, Malacca, Negeri Sembilan, Johor and Kedah.

He also alleged during the press conference that Malaysia’s Election Commission (EC)  is delaying the announcement of the official results by refusing to sign the Form 14.

Dr Mahathir further claimed that Barisan Nasional (BN) chairperson Najib Abdul Razak is being backed by certain authorities, and called on them to put the nation ahead of any individual.

“They should come to their senses. Especially the police and the armed forces,” he said, adding that Malaysians would retaliate if Najib declares emergency rule.

Result as of 2.20am (Thursday, 10th May)

Meanwhile, according to official results that have been released, PH has won 109 parliamentary seats, BN has 73  and PAS has 16 seats.

Updated as of 4.00am (Thursday, 10th May)

According to verified sources, PH has managed to win a simple majority out of the 222 parliamentary seats and can form the new federal government of Malaysia.

With a handful of parliamentary seats still unknown, PH has managed to garner 119 seats, BN has 78 and PAS 18. Independent candidates have also managed to win 3 parliamentary seats.

New PM to be sworn in today (10th May)

Meanwhile, chairperson for PH, Dr Mahathir said at a press conference that the new prime minister will be sworn in later today.

According to him, the king has summoned the leader of PKR – the party whose logo PH used in GE 14  - to the palace following news that the opposition coalition had won a simple majority.

Dr Mahathir said he has also asked the chief secretary to the government to announce Thursday and Friday as public holidays, a promise the opposition coalition made prior to GE 14.

Historic regime change in Malaysia

Malaysians have made history and the country is seeing its first regime change since its independence from the British in 1957.

Congratulations Malaysia. Power to the People!

.

 

 

Final Count

PH – 122 seats

BN – 79 seats

PAS – 18 seats

Independent – 3 seats

All in, PH won around 45 percent of the popular vote followed by BN with 32 percent and PAS by 16 percent.

.

* Pakatan Harapan comprises Bersatu, PKR, DAP and Amanah. Parti Warisan Sabah is not part of Harapan but is an ally of the opposition coalition. As such, seats won by Warisan will be included under Harapan in the tally. Independent Larry Sng has an informal alliance with Harapan and is therefore also included.

  • The Rot Started From The Top:

    Malaysia boleh, Singapore to follow soon. This is a special wake-up call for True Blue Singaporeans. The biggest crime under PM Nazip, is corruption, and Singapore has the Keppel Corp corruption, yet to be independently investigated. The truth of the GIC and the State Fund must be opened for scrutiny. Many cases falls short of true justice must also be reviewed, like the Marsilling GRC re-election, which was ridiculously not allowed. Wake Up Singaporeans, Malaysia boleh, Singapore also boleh.

    Congratulations to our Malaysian sisters and brothers who have done the Needful:show Ahjib and Gang the Middle Finger in this 9 May 2018 Historical GE! By doing so, they have secured their future and also future generations. Initially, there will be obstacles and problems. But knowing the resolve and determination of the Malaysian, they will overcome them in due course! Not to forget, hat off and admiration for Dr M who at his age, still think of his country and managed to CHANGE History!

    Over here in SinKapore, Mai Hum and Gang will shit in their pants with this Great PH news! Great difference btw Malaysian and SinKaporean voters though. The Malaysian have guts and balls. SinKaporean have NONE! Period. The Malaysian care about their future, the future of their children and generations to come. On the other hand, SinKaporean mostly care about themselves, their assets(highly inflated priced HDB flat, EC, Condo, private property, etc). So, alto Mai Hum will have initial bout of shitting in his pants, he and his World Class Ministers will learn from Ahjib’a retribution and come out with ways and plans to ensure the Malaysian Tsunami will NOT HAPPEN in SinKapore. He will surely listen his Big Daddy advice: in case of FREAK result, call in the ARMY!

  • Selfish Sinkies:

    Sinkies are too engrossed and too busy to make ends meet and too comfortable for change.
    New citizens from 3rd world countries are too grateful to the incumbent, no change wanted.
    Status quo for Sg, and incumbent to set record for longest reign, while Sg is ruined.

    But very too tough to risk their live and loved ones to be opposition. Sigh
    So, no change for Singapore for many more years to come, just enjoy the screw.

  • Don't blame sinkee:

    Don’t blame sinkees, blame our oppositions. They are made up of a bunch of self-centred personalities who have their own narrowed minded agenda.

    They should learn from mahathir, a real Grandmaster in politics. Look what are their strategies and promises to their people. Look how they set their differences asides. See the 93years old quickly controlled the situation when he knowed unofficially they had won, pending the official announcement by the umno controlled EC. These had prevented any hankies pankies going behind the scenes.

    The ball is always on the opposition’s side, unless they cooperated they can’t even hit the ball over the net. Games over.

    Ringgit drop after opposition win the election.

    Mark my word. Ringgit will crash to RM 10 to S$1 the moment Malaysia removed GST.

    MY will run out of money to service the high national debts.

    Malaysians are stupid just like the stupid Taiwanese who voted in opposition only to find opposition always equally corrupt.

    Singapore is right in paying out of this world high salary to Ministers and MPs and Civil Servants.

    Average Singaporeans be forewarned:

    - YOU Vote PAP S$$$$ remain strong.
    - YOU Vote Opposition S$ will crash.

  • International storm:

    Phillippines, USA, Briexit now Malaysia collapse of foreign biased govt or alliance detriment to citizenry interest and benefits showed there is an increase awareness of the power of the citizenry. A govt can come up with voluminous figures and statistics of how well they have done for the nation is now considered bogus and dispensable when the citizenry does not see themselves benefited from what they have proudly yelled to them and worse they see the ruling party and its members elected getting richer and flaunt their wealth arrogantly at the slightest opportunity. The awareness that power is really in their hands to change and if they are to ensure the party they elected is seriously and honestly working for their benefits and in their interests has swept across the world and arevasserting people power and rights. They realize they must be crazy to elect a party that will limits their rights to dissent and criticise, the right of journalists to report the truths instead of falsehoods under e extreme censorship, the humiliation of succumbing to the power they have given. Briexit is a classical example and the execution is subjected to much foreign bully and blackmail. Pinoys are generally expressing faith in their new President and many in Singapore are looking forward to be able to enjoy a real family life in Phillippines. PAP has been arrogant and tyrannical for as long as nepotism took root. Their arrogance and falsehoods have peaked and the international wave of citizens awakening that sweep thru hopefully will eradicate nepotism with its compliant harem of plps, bootlickers, brownnosers, ball suckers lickers whatever in the next execution of citizens power and right to all freedom in speech, gathering and journalist freedom to report the truth and not threatened. Nepotism and plpism must be wiped clean to return to a vibrant, innovative, creative and thinking Nation which was once the hallmark of the little island.

    This achievement belongs to him and no one can take it away from him.
    His name is now recorded in history books forever as the man that led the BN to defeat.

    I have asked my secretary to write a letter congratulating him on this occasion.

    Money cannot buy you happiness when you have lost power and being investigated.

    This is one reason why politicians fear losing power. It’s not the money. They have enough. It’s being investigated.

  • Roy:

    Singaporeans has to be aware that no one is indispensable. Even Kings , Prime Ministers or even people in authority has to face death. Some talk about LKY rising from the dead… Even so if LKY were to rise from the dead, he will be born as a baby. By the time, he is 30 years old, many of our generation would have died…so be realistic…we will not even see his birth.
    What the current Government could do is to be transparent and honest with Singaporean. Revert to the old SMC system instead of the GRC and NCMP scheme which does not represent the minority. The EC should be independent, stop gerrymandering , s
    The PA should not be linked to the g
    any political parties that includes the PAP, the NTUC should not be managed by Government officials and there should be freedom of the press
