Unofficial results according to voting districts suggest that a significant number of Chinese and Indian voters who voted against BN in 2018 have reversed their decision. Wee Ka Siong (MCA President) and Vigneswaran Sanasee (MIC President) must both be feeling relieved as their ability to marshal both Chinese (10% at full turnout) and Indian support (13%) for the UMNO candidate were expected.

The support for BN was very apparent in the Indian-majority voting district of Ladang Sungkai where Indian voters made up 83.56 percent of the electorate.

In 2018, 70.35 percent of the voters in this voting district backed the Pakatan Harapan candidate.

This time around, 68.26 percent of the voters in this voting district backed the BN man, Mohd Zaidi Aziz. That works out to nearly 82% Indian support for BN.

Meanwhile, the results from the Sungai Slim Utara voting district suggest a similar swing by Chinese voters.

It seems BN has made a clean sweep of all 13 voting stations along with winning the postal and early vote.

This means that BN managed to obtain "turnaround" voters in six voting districts that did not support them in the 2018 elections.

It could also indicate that there is a significant swing towards BN among townsfolk across all three major races.

One of the clearest swings happened at the Sungai Slim Utara voting district where BN won only 17.85 percent of the vote in 2018.

This time around, BN bagged 61.28 percent of the vote - a massive turnaround in a Chinese-majority (60.85 percent) voting district.

Yes, let's not forget PAS is now with UMNO in a Muafakat Nasional coalition thus the combined votes surely help. And of course as mentioned, MCA and MIC must both be elated for their re-born support, wakakaka.

Looks like a snap election may be around the corner as no doubt BN (UMNO, PAS, MCA & MIC) must be feeling quite confident with the by-election outcome.

Needless to say, Lim KHAT will have something nasty to say tomorrow, wakakaka.

And for Atuk, his candidate Amir Khusyairi nearly lost his deposit after only securing 13.69% of th3 votes (just above the minimum requirement of 12.5% for retaining his deposit).


  1. Ktemoc is bound to be disappointed if he gets to delusional about his Fave MCA regaining Chinese support.

  2. bagus masih ada 13% mahu berjuang demi negara, rakyat dan bangsa, aku ramal tak capai 5%. jgn putus asa, next round aku confiden bolih dapat 15%, lama lama jadi bukit, i sokong berjuang terus, conman wansui, emperor xi wansui.

  3. 13% malay support for pejuang is damn good news, certainly not something to snigger at, a significant result for pakatan harapan IF they collaborate in ge15, harapan wasn't in the mix in slim hence the swing to bn and probably a message of displeasure for maddy

    1. in 2018 PH obtained 6400+ - those 13% would have come from PH. In GE15 they will go back to PH
