I cannot believe anybody would actually vote Taib Mahmud back in power. Especially the people of Belaga who have been impacted by the catastrophic Bakun Dam - how come they voted BN? Can't just be due to postal votes... which have been used time and again by the Election Commission to stave off outright defeat for BN. These people in the longhouses must be braindead from watching too much TV3.

The Election Commission must be completely revamped before the next election - but how? Unless Bersih 2.0 organizes another mammoth rally with 500,000 on the streets.

In any case DAP did tremendously well, winning 12 seats out of 15 contested; and it's a pity that Alice Lau couldn't dislodge BN's Wong Soon Koh in Bawang Assan.

Congratulations, DAP!

A real Pity PKR didn't do so well in the rural seats. Baru Bian as the new chief minister of Sarawak would have been something worth celebrating.
