As a voter in Sibu, I am very happy with the result, almost lost to the postal vote, just found out that they change the turn-out from 59.86% to 70%, if calculate the vote, the postal votes are almost 2x. From 2500 register voters to 5100 votes. If not we won by more than 5000 votes. I just found out that my past away grand parents still can vote. So to PM, I like to meet them again, and I think BN can arrange every. …you people put too many ghost people in the ballots, now them come back to… Read more »

As a Sabahan we like to congratulate the Sibu people for
showing their true feeling and need.We in Sabah shared the
same sentiments.Hope the Sibu Tsunami will travel to Sabah
in the coming 13 General election.It nice also if SAPP dare
to vacant their MP seat to test the BN strength and let the SABAH people to decide.

I only saw you wrote twice “Comments have been enabled” and immediately, I reload the page but still see the same message “Comments have been disabled…” and then reload a few times to no avail. I even refresh the Internet page. Anil, you don’t have to say sorry. I just wanted to know whether it’s my computer problem or other viewers have the same problem. Hmm, you will check that out the next time?? In another by-election? It’s so ironic that because of these ‘buy-elections’ some people have become wicked and wished that their ADUN would resign ,etc, in order… Read more »

Thanks Anil for the LIVE coverage yesterday. I’m sure many Malaysians from around the world was following the by-election LIVE from your site.

I have no problem with the speed but however, I was unable to submit any comment despite you enabling it. I still see the word “Comments have been disabled …(or something like that)” on the screen. Why is that so?

You’re the BEST when it comes to LIVE coverage, and of course, I never fail to log-in to your site every morning before I start my day.

Thanks again, Anil.

It is unbelievable that Pakatan cybertroopers and DAP/Pakatan leaders are running amok with delirious joy as though they have won the World Cup.

LKS is even calling it historic. I wonder what is so historic about DAP winning in Sarawak. I didnt hear Najib calling HS as historic even when they won by a bigger majority.

The fact is that this is just a temporary respite for Pakatan and DAP. The end is near and nothing can stop Pakatan from imploding with their MPs and ADUNs jumping off the Titanic that Pakatan has become.

DAP regained this parliamentary constituency after 26 years, so there is reason for them to celebrate. BN regained the Hulu Selangor seat after 2 years, so…what do you think?

Happy to see this result. The slim margin of victory should be viewed taking into account the gross and blatant bribery involved from one side. It is therefore a GOOD win, a Drift in a Good Direction towards the CHANGE that Malaysia n M’sians NEED!

Actually this election was very similar to the hulu selangor election. even in hulu selangor pakatan was leading well until the postal votes and the (alleged) pengundi hantu kicked in.

Even in Sibu last night when the postal votes and the other assorted pengundi votes kicked in Pakatan was struggling and won very narrowly.

The strongest message we got from this by-election is that the Sarawakians especially the Sarawak Bumiputras have woken up to certain realities.

Pakatan Rakyat is now a Government in waiting.

So what now? This does not represent a march to Putrajaya nor is it even a march to Kuching/Petrajaya. Its a moral victory and lease of life for PR. This country is being tested in what it truly believes in. What it really mean to be a Malaysian nation. The truth is we are not deciding. We are divided, we are jaded and cynical and we don’t trust each other. Non-Malays believe that not reforming will destroy the nation but the Malays don’t trust the non-Malays to take care of them if there is reform and have no confidence in… Read more »

Congrats SIBU! You have demonstrated Money is not everything and made the right choice. You definitely have sturdier sets of spine than those in Hulu Selangor!

Even with a handicap of more than 2000 postal votes, BN still fail to retain its Sarawak stronghold in this first by-election in east Malaysia. Guess the politicians from BN can now go back to their kampong to tanah janggong.

I have being waiting for results and last last frined tell me to go to web. Through Anil channel of information is so much faster than our TV news and Radios. This tell us our freedom of information is not what Rais Yatim claim to be effective. Free kam pua for RY pls. Sarawak and Sabah have hope now with PR to transform the TRUE 1Malaysia.

First Najib… tried to bribe the people with money. Then… ADUN … jump party in order to sway the election.

He thought he could could buy us with money. What he don`t realise is that he can buy some but not all. Congratulation to the people of Sibu & Sarawak for standing up to money politics and buy election. As what I have said 99% DAP PR.

Thanks Yang for mentioning PR. From now on, we should only mention PR against BN instead of DAP/PKR/PAS.

Everyone did their job well, without PKR or PAS, DAP would not have won. It is team work that matters.

Rememember when they were counting the last few boxes of votes from the Malay area and DAP was shocked to receive an extra 600 votes compared to 2008 from the Melanaus? This shows that PR as a team is really giving a strong challenge to BN in every constituency now!

Congratulations! Cheers! Salam Reformasi!

Congratulations to DAP Wong Ho Leng for successfully wresting the MP seat from BN.

The delay of the EC to announce the by-election results was most disappointing.

I wish to opine that postal votes should not be allowed in future elections – by election or general election as the case may be.

All policemen and servicemen who have been transferred out of any constituency must change their addresses to where they are transferred.

Postal votes must be abolished in order to make any election transparent and to possible foul play and poll rigging.

Viva la DAP in Sarawak
