BN wins federal govt but opposition takes five states

BN wins federal govt but opposition takes five states

KUALA LUMPUR: The Barisan Nasional will form the next Government as it has won more than half the parliamentary seats.

However, the coalition suffered some of the greatest defeats in its history. Barisan Nasional chairman Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi, in accepting the results, said this was clear proof of democracy at work in the country.

Among the results yesterday were:

* The Barisan lost Kedah, Penang, Perak and Selangor,
* PAS strengthened grip on Kelantan,
* Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi, Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak and Datuk Seri Ong Ka Ting won in their seats,
* Among ministers who lost their seats were Datuk Seri S. Samy Vellu, Datuk Seri Shahrizat Abdul Jalil, Datuk Seri Zainuddin Maidin,
* Gerakan acting president Tan Sri Dr Koh Tsu Koon lost to Dr P. Ramasamy in the Batu Kawan parliamentary seat.

Meanwhile, party leaders urged for calm and police have banned all victory celebrations.

I look forward to see a bright future of Malaysia! And the same time, I feel deeply pity that I didn't manage to vote for this general election. For the next election, I MUST vote no matter how, as this is my duty, as a Malaysian.

Malaysia Boleh!
