Massive Win for BN in Tanjung Piai With A Whopping Majority of 15,086 Votes – PKR Ask Tun M To Step Down

Barisan Nasional (BN) has trounced Pakatan Harapan (PH) in the Tanjung Piai by-election today with a whopping majority of 15,086 votes, the Election Commission (EC) announced tonight.

BN’s candidate Datuk Seri Wee Jeck Seng from MCA received 25,466 votes over PH’s Karmaine Sardini from Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia, who received 10,380 votes.

Analysts had predicted that voter unhappiness with Pakatan Harapan would lead to a defeat for the ruling coalition.

Barisan Nasional supporters were jubilant as counting of votes progressed this evening at the Dewan Jubli Intan counting centre here. By contrast, the mood was sombre in the Pakatan Harapan camp.

In an immediate reaction to the early results from Tanjung Piai, Syed Husin Ali, a former PKR deputy president, said the by-election amounted to a referendum on the leadership of Prime Minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad.

“The people are disappointed and want to teach Harapan, especially Dr M,” he said in a tweet. Mahathir is chairman of Pakatan Harapan as well as PPBM.

Syed Husin also said that Mahathir knows what should be done immediately. “Don’t dither any longer,” he said, in an apparent broad hint that Mahathir should step down.

    No one is indispensible. TM was the one responsible for building the platform for all these problems. Big time cronnyism & corruption started during his time. Thot he has returned to put things right, but no, a leopard never changes its spots. He will lead PH to demise. Get rid of him now. Save Malaysia.
