Early Observations of GE13 Results

The votes are finalized and announced by SPR. BN wins 133 over PR 89 seats in Parliament. BN governs all states except Penang, Kelantan and Selangor. PR gains 7 additional seats. All this with strong underlying presence of alleged fraud with phantom voters and unfair main stream media coverage.

Najib’s initial reaction is that he did not expect the Chinese votes to swing so extreme (read here). His line of reasoning was covered with racial overtones with blames on the Chinese community and voting along racial lines.

This off-the-cuff reaction speaks very loudly that Najib’s line of thinking is very racial indeed. In psychological evaluation, one is tested on quick first thing in the mind reaction which shows how Najib thinks. He forgets that there are Malays who voted PR and the popular vote for PR was higher than BN. Why must everything be racial? Because that is how BN thinks and works.

In the calling for national reconciliation, will Najib remains focused on racial lines or will he take the nation beyond race to needs? Unfortunately, not many believes he will change much. It will be flowery rhetorics with racial policies underlying national strategies. But we shall give him a chance and see.

Final Words on Pematang Pauh

Results At A Glance

PKR – 31,195 (Anwar)  30,348 (Wan Azizah)

BN – 15,524 (Arif Shah)  16,950 (Pirdaus)

Majority – 15,671 (Anwar)  13,398 (Wan Azizah)

* The GE12 results for Pematang Pauh can be found here at the SPR official website.

Now that the dust is settling, Anwar will be sworn in as MP of Pematang Pauh tomorrow (Thursday) as reported by Bernama (read here).  Looks like there’s nothing to stop this from happening and he will be voted as the Opposition Leader as well.  Looks like it’s all set for the next phase of Anwar’s plan.

In a nutshell, the Pematang Pauh by-election results is a repeat of the March GE12 results where the voters are voicing out yet again the frustrations against the BN government.  The slight decrease in BN votes may not be significant but the majority reflects a clear voice of dissatisfaction by the voters.

It also shows that no amount of mud slinging, character assassination, intimidation, silly promises and what nots can stir the voters.  The results remain the same.  It is NOT all about Anwar, it’s also about BN’s inability to make life better for the people and govern the country.

For now, Malaysians will have a good Merdeka Day!

Pematang Pauh Watershed of a New Malaysia?


Anwar (PKR) – 31,195 (66%) – Majority: 15,671 (Wan Azizah polled 13,388 in March GE12)

Arif Shah (BN) – 15,524 (32.8%) (Lost in his Seberang Jaya sector by a large margin)

Hanafi Hamad (AKIN) – 92

Spoilt – 447

Total Electorate – 58,459

Turnout – 80.8% (47,259)

The results were just announce over TV and posted at Malaysia Today here and The Malaysian Insider here too.  So, we can see that the Election Commission earlier announced a “guestimate” instead of being precise about the voters turnout percentage.  Shouldn’t the EC be scientifically and mathematically correct in all their announcements?
