GE13 Results: Update 1

The Election Commission reported a record 80 percent voter turnout for GE13.

At 9:30 PM, DAP’s Lim Guan Eng announced that Pakatan Rakyat retained Penang and held on to its two-thirds state assembly majority. Congrats to Penangites for their maturity!

According to Oriental Daily, SUPP is left with one parliamentary seat, Serian, which is retained by its bumiputera candidate Richard Riot Jaem. Poor SUPP! It lost Stampin, Sarikei and Lanang to DAP, and Miri to PKR. And it also failed to recapture Kuching and Sibu from DAP.

PAS didn't manage to wrest Putrajaya from BN. Never mind, Husam Musa you gave it your best shot!
