2045: All right, The Wiz will stop blogging for now. Thank you for your following on this ‘Live’ coverage of Hulu Selangor Parliamentary by-election that ended with a victory to BeEnd’s Kamalanathan. Pakatan Rakyat has tried its best to retain the seat but facing the onslaught of cash and MORE cash being injected each day by PM, we know it would be an uphill task to deny BeEnd its first victory in Pakatan controlled state.
HOwever, we should take heart that the combined power of the rakyat has managed to DENY BeEnd its 5000 – 6000 majority votes which was predicted by Muhiddin this afternoon. The close majority shows that many people still believe that there is a bright future for Malaysia and not influenced by offer of cash and fake development.
Thank you, Thank you & Thank you to all rakyat who has put in effort – no matter how small it may be…
The Wiz will take his bow… for now.
2030: Yes, it is almost as good as confirmed and official. Pakatan Rakyat has lost this ‘buy-election’. There is nothing to be ashamed of. Perhaps we still ‘lack’ the money factor that will eventually cost us more victories in coming by-elections such as the one being anticipated in Sibu, Sarawak this May 2010.
2015: It was reported in Malaysiakini.com that Prime Minister and BN chairperson Najib Abdul Razak is on his way to the main tally centre in Hulu Selangor, an indication that the coalition has won this by-election.
Deputy Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin is also on his way to the tally centre in Kuala Kubu Bahru.
It seems that BN has won big in Malay-majority areas, especially the Felda settlements (where $$$ is splashed 2 days ago). While PKR has won the Chinese-majority areas, but its margin of victory in these areas is not big enough to compensate its loss in the Malay-majority area.
In addition, it appears that Indian voters have mostly return to BN’s folds. Indeed a very sad state to see Indians have ‘submitted’ to the ‘Ketuanan Melayu’ of umno. It’s their choice, we have to respect that. No wonder CM Lim Guan Eng has proclaimed that ‘money power’ has prevailed over People’s power tonight. Sad sad day for democracy…
2000: Pakatan leaders are ‘conceding’ defeat after report emerged that BeEnd has overturned the deficit and now leading the votes by 2,000 majority. Rumours have been flying in and out of counting center and even seasoned journalists could not verify which source is real and which one is fake.
But please keep your fingers crossed dear Malaysians. Let’s not lose hope until official count is announced. We should NOT lose hope up to the LAST minute!
1950: Unofficial results
According to BN sources, P Kamalanathan (MIC) is leading Zaid Ibrahim (PKR) by about 2,000 votes.
PKR leaders have unofficially conceded defeat.
BN – 21,354
PKR – 19,917
Majority – 1,437 -source Malaysiakini.com
1945: Khairy Jamaluddin is claiming that it is BeEnd that hold the majority in the ‘unofficial’ counting of votes so far and NOT as reported by Malaysiakini in their Unofficial count which is used here by the Wiz. According to ‘curry Jamaluddin’, the real figure should be like this:
BN – 19,067
PKR – 17,554
Majority – 1,513
1925: Election Commission‘s official results
PKR – 2,722
BN – 2,468
Majority – 258
* Early Official result has also showed that Pakatan is leading the pack in a razor-thin majority of 258. However, we hope that NO MORE dirty tricks will be put out by BeEnd during the counting process and we hope NO Phanthom votes will find its way into the ballot boxes. All PR vigilators have been instructed to be extra vigilant during the vote-counting process!
1915: Unofficial results
PKR – 9,133
BN – 7,261
Majority – 1,872
About 33 percent of the votes have been tallied so far. Pakatan Rakyat is enlarging its majority at a healthy manner but the fight is still tight considering IF PR did not fare well in Malay-majority area. Anything is still possible….
1900: On-the-spot analysis
Most of the Chinese-majority areas have been counted, with PKR leading by 1,226 votes. The votes in the Malay-majority areas have not to come in. PKR is expected not to do well in these areas. The race for Hulu Selangor is still tight. – sources from Malaysiakini.com
Let us hope that Pakatan Rakyat can wrestle some ‘saluran’ in Malay-majority areas as well as winning convincingly in mixed areas. We must also keep tab on Indian-majority area to gauge their voting sentiment as well as our ‘orang Asli’ comrades. It is time for rakyat to show our ‘hamba’ the government that People’s Power is the real power in democracy!
1845: Unofficial results
Early analyst show that PR is leading in the race even though the percentage is very small and minor. However, according to DAP Supermo Lim Kit Siang, PR hope that the estimated 18,000 voters who resided outside Hulu Selangor will make the ‘difference’ in this fight against BeEnd. They hope these PR-sided voters would be able to tilt the balance of deficit from Felda and orang asli voters who have traditionally voted for BeEnd.
PKR – 6,389
BN – 5,385
Majority – 1,004
So far about 25% of votes counted.

1750: Zaid has been very “quiet” since afternoon lunch as no one knows where he has been all these while. His last twit on Twitter was somewhere around 12:30pm and till now, we have not heard anything from him or his close entourage. Perhaps it is time for him to come around political maturity after witnessing ‘the most manipulated and dirty’ buy-election of the year in 2010! 😀 Welcome to the ‘real world’…
1745: EC confirmed voters turnout this time is slightly higher than the one during last 2008 12th General Election. An additional 1,003 voters have come to cast their vote.
1730: DAP supremo Lim Kit Siang has expressed SHOCK and disgust at the ineffectiveness of MACC whereby they failed to take any action against pm najib razak for promising the SRJK(C) Rasa to come to Putrajaya tomorrow in the case BeEnd wins in order for them to collect their RM3 Million cheque to rebuild their 80 year old Chinese primary school. What about BeEnd to lose? They can forget about the cheque once and for all! How ironic BeEnd become when they lose. Talk about ‘rakyat’ diutamakan, talk about 1Malaysia, all these are crap when they lose!
BeEnd thugs harrassing voters on their way to the polling stations.
1715: Earlier deputy pm muhiddin yasin has predicted that BeEnd expect to win by a ‘whooping’ 6,000 votes majority as he felt the sentiment on the ground was so receptive for BeEnd, especially after ‘najis’ desperado campaigning during the last 2 days with plenty of cold cash to splash around.
1700 : Polling closed with the ‘donkey’ EC announcing voter turnout to be slightly lower than was expected when around 75.87% or 48,935 voters have cast their votes today in Hulu Selangor.
It was an eventful day where the polis raja dimalaysia has arrested around 32 ‘troublemakers’ from both sides of the political divide. It was reported by Malaysiakini that there were 3 ‘canvassars’ from BeEnd parties sustained minor injury when both sides were involved in heated arguments which escalated into ‘skirmishes’.
