The combined opposition of DAP, PKR and PAS said that they will form the new government in Perak. Collectively the three parties have won 30 seats (DAP – 18, PKR – 6, PAS – 6) out of 59 seats. One seat (Teja) is yet to be decided.However, the opposition still will have a narrow one-seat majority even if Teja goes to BN. About 50 opposition supporters are attempting to seal off the state government building in Ipoh to stop documents from being removed. (Malaysiakini).
Will Kit Siang be the new Perak chief minister?
Of course he can’t! He contested under a parliament seat, not a state one :)
The state is still too close to call. However, the opposition claimed that it has won a simple majority in the state. According to PKR state chief Dr Lee Boon Chye, the opposition was victorious 30 out of 59 seats (DAP – 18, PKR – 6, PAS – 6).
But the state Election Commission appears to have suffered a computer glitch, which has delayed the announcement of the results. (Malaysiakini).
