Pakatan Wins, Forms the new Government after GE14


Malaysia is making her own history. A new era has begun.

After nearly 61 years of rule by the same party since independence in 1957, today, May 10, 2018, marks the first day of rule by the other party (the Opposition until yesterday), the day of the General Election (GE14).

The results show a shocking turnaround. Almost all west coast states of the peninsula with the exception of Perlis, switched to the Opposition.

On the east coast, Pahang remains a BN stronghold. PAS the Islamist Party has managed to retain Kelantan and has even managed to wrest Terengganu from BN. What a change it will be for Terengganu. By the way, Club Med is located in Terengganu, so is the popular tourist island resort of Perhentian.

Over in Borneo, Sabah saw a hung assembly with 29 seats to BN and 29 seats to the Opposition parties combined. This makes a third party Sabah STAR party the kingmaker garnering 2 seats. Sabah STAR decided to go with BN giving BN a simple majority to rule Sabah.

Kedah and Perak also face a similar fate - a hung assembly.

Sarawak remains under BN.


- the Opposition has won in Penang (retained) Kedah, Perak, Selangor (retained), Negeri Sembilan, Malacca and Johore, the southernmost state neighbour to Singapore. And tied in Sabah.

- BN retains Perlis, the northernmost state, Pahang and Sarawak.

- PAS, the Islamist Party, added Terengganu to the retained Kelantan.

To give you a better picture of where the states are, here is a map of Malaysia.
