Good Morninnnng, Malaysia! Fajar baru menyinsing.

You did it! You did the right thing. You REALLLLLLY did the right thing. The Opposition has taken 82 seats in the parliament (well over 1/3) and wrested the state assemblies in 5 major states. Kelantan and Kedah to PAS, Selangor to PKR, Penang and Perak to DAP.

As at 9.15am, the SPR has these official results available, reproduced below. There's still 3 parliament and 2 state assembly seats undecided, but those are the pendalaman seats in Sabah and Sarawak and will in no way change the momentous result of the election.

Regardless, the unofficial has become official. The Opposition has become the govt in 5 states (Kelantan, Penang, Kedah, Selangor and Perak). Goliath has been slain and the turkey has risen from the ashes to become a pheonix.

And it seems to me that MCA, MIC and Gerakan have completely lost their relevance. MCA has less than half the federal and state seats compared to 2004.

MIC now has less than 1/3 compared to 2004. And they've lost virtually all their top leaders from President to Youth Chiefs.

Gerakan has been all but completely demolished. It only has, get this... 10% of the seats it held from 2004... and no President.

I think it's time they consider joining the Opposition.
