Taking a 24 hours cooling period before making this post, as anything can still happen to the final official results especially when the mighty BN lost.

Sarawak Sibu P212 By Election Official Results :

Total Turnout 37,919 voters

Percentage Voted 70%

DAP 18,845

BN 18,447

Ind 232

Spoilt votes - 395 votes

Majority 398

I was wrong and so are others who predicted that Umno/Supp will win except for Ong Kian Ming analysis that DAP will win with 500 majority.

PR/DAP win was truly a shocking surprise to many, especially PM Najib, who thought that might, power and money are all it takes to win an election. Even DAP supremo YB Lim Kit Siang dare not predict a slim chance of winning except to hope for a Sibu miracle.

Up till the last minute, Umno/Supp does not want to admit defeat, thus leading to allegations and speculations of the EC trying to manipulate the result when it delayed the announcing of the official results by two and half hours.

The ruling Government (or is it "umno's government") that refused to acknowledge that we are now living in the 21st century and they keep hoping against hope that by using the same old tactics of race, religion, intimidation and money will get the peoples vote. And worst is that the PM is now openly bribing the voters to ensure a victory. But these are no longer effective.

DAP wins in this Sibu by election is a tsunami itself comparable to the 308 tsunami. It does not matter what umno or its media are going to say or spin about DAP slim majority and if you take a look at the 2008 results, you can see the true fact that DAP had wiped out the 3235 majority gain by umno/Supp.

DAP 15,903

BN 19,138

PKR 812

Majority 3235

Even though umno is painting a very bad picture of Pakatan Rakyat, the result shows that the people are now more comfortable with non race base coalition and the fear of malay supremacy and May 13 are no longer there.

Since 308 there have been 11 by elections and the score is:

Pakatan Rakyat 8

Barisan National 3
