As most of us predicted, the high possibility of a hung parliament became reality as the GE 15 election results were tallied.
I stayed up until almost 4:00 am this morning (my usual wake up time LOL!) and called it quits when it was apparent that none of the coalitions had the numbers to form a new government. Bah!
So with that, there is no celebration, as the hope that I (and many other Malaysians) had burning in our spirits seemed to fade and the resignation that we are now back to square one sank in.
As of the time of writing, negotiations are being held to form alliances to gather enough numbers required to form a new government.
At 6:00pm I parked myself in front of the TV. When my partner came home later in the evening, we sat together to wait for the election results.
Then she fell asleep. My partner had a long day and he told me about the massive jam he faced on the way to and from Penang. By midnight, he couldn't keep his eyes open. So I told him to go ahead upstairs while I kept vigil.
