Today is SUNDAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Today is Sunday!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! woooooooooooooooooooo hoooooooooooooooo!!!!!!!!!!

MALAYSIA'S ruling party faced its biggest electoral debacle on Sunday, as the opposition won five of 13 states, putting a dark cloud on the prime minister's political future.

Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi's multi-racial National Front coalition managed to win just a simple majority in parliament and will form the government at the federal level.

But it lost a crucial two-thirds parliamentary majority it has held for most of its 50-year-long rule, the election body said. That level is needed to change the constitution.

‘We’ve lost, we’ve lost’. These were the only words which Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi could muster when quizzed on the ruling coalition’s shocking defeat in five states.

It was a day of shocks for Barisan Nasional as some of its big guns tumbled in the general election.
Though it had managed to secure a simple majority in parliament, the loose opposition alliance of the DAP, Pas and PKR managed to take control of Penang, Kedah, Selangor, Perak and retained Kelantan comfortably.
