What a wonderful News!!!!

I can't recall when was the last time I enjoy reading news from the Malaysia mainstream news agencies like today....like this Bernama report...



Three Menteris Besar From PAS, One Each From DAP And PKR
KUALA LUMPUR, March 9 (Bernama) -- After leading the Kelantan state government for 18 years, PAS will have another two Menteris Besar from its ranks while DAP and Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) will have one each after the opposition's unpredecented sweep of five states in the general election.

The loose opposition front won Penang, Kedah, Perak and Selangor and retained Kelantan in the polls yesterday where the ruling Barisan Nasional (BN) returned to power without its two-thirds majority.

Kedah PAS Commissioner, Azizan Abdul Razak,S 64, is expected to be sworn in as the state Menteri Besar today while the 77-year-old Datuk Nik Aziz Nik Mat, PAS Spritual Leader, is almost certain to helm the Kelantan government.

PAS won an unexpected 16 seats in the polls, PKR four while DAP and an independent candidate one each. The ousted BN won 14.

In a surprise move, PAS, DAP and PKR took the first step towards forming a coalition government in Perak by nominating Perak PAS Liaison Secretary Ir Mohamad Nizar Jamaluddin who won the Pasir Panjang state seat, as Menteri Besar.

This is despite the DAP holding the biggest share of seats won in the silver state. It won 18 state seats, against six for PAS and PKR'seven.

In Penang, Chief Minister designate, DAP secretary-general Lim Guan Eng is going to achieve something his father Lim Kit Siang had only dreamt, fought and failed to accomplish with his few "Tanjong" projects to wrest the island state.

Guan Eng led the party to a stunning victory in the state, winning 19 state seats, which together with PKR's nine and PAS' one were more than enough to oust BN.

Former Permodalan Nasional Berhad's chief executive officer, Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim has emerged the front runner to be the new Menteri Besar of Selangor after the opposition party won 36 of the 56 seats at stake.The PKR secretary-general won the Bandar Tun Razak parliamentary constituency and the Ijok state seat, which he had lost during a by-election last year.

PKR has called for a press conference later today to announce the formation of the state government and the new Menteri Besar to replace Datuk Seri Dr Mohd Khir Toyo.

Aaaah, what a feeling!

hopefully, the media will be more liberal after this instead of one sided. Tak boleh salahkan diorang 100% jugak lah kan. They are being pressured. Semoga, tiada pressure yang tak elok lagi lepas ni. Insyaallah...

Pak Payne,
But now the mainstream media - especially TV3 - are going all out to paint that all is not well at these States. Somehow, RTM1 is even more tolerable.
Such a baaaaad loser! These UMNO people..

Neeza,
Our friend obefiend has explained it succinctly. Tak tau lar... did you know that during the results night, by 3am almost all TV stations decided to wrap things up and showed reruns of drama melayu instead. Padahal there are many more official results yet to be announced. And the anchors are all tergagap already. I remembered many years ago, TV3 results show ended at 8am the next day. These people are really comedy actors la

Saudara Obefiend,
Thanks bro, yup I'm new here, still trying to search for my bearing here. Fun factory? I don't think so... the way these people are running around the Tan Sri, they are all sort of afraid of him..I think. You still studying here?

Mior Azhar said...

Nafastari,
Yes, Malaysia Sudah Gagah!

Thanks obefiend :)

Pak Mior,

I waited in front of my notebook sampai 10.30 Saudi (3.30am Malaysia) tapi things still not finalized. The next morning, my father smsed me, the official result was not out yet.. aik!! rasanya Pak Lah ada mention yang our new Kerajaan will be up by 11pm. If they're comedy actors, I guess they are the worse one... takut dengan bayang bayang sendiri..
