Polling in the Federal District of Tanjung Piai closed at 5.30 pm today with counting already in progress at the time of writing.

According to a news report, at 5 pm, the Election Commission (EC) revealed that the turnout at 4 pm itself was 70 per cent and was expected to hit the mid-seventies percentile by closing.

At 4 pm, Malaysiakini reported that its analysis of turnout patterns suggested that polling districts where Pakatan Harapan did well during the last general election saw a lower than average turnout rate this time round, valid as of 2pm. 

However, if Harapan did manage to convert some BN supporters, the turnout numbers won’t necessarily give the opposition coalition an advantage. 


SUBANG JAYA: Polling in the Federal District of Tanjung Piai closed at 5.30 pm today with counting already in progress at the time of writing.

Unofficial results thus far indicate that Barisan Nasional’s Wee Jeck Seng is in the lead to bag the trophy in the constituency which came into being in 2004 during the Tun Abdullah Ahmad Badawi administration.

Conversely, the turnout for polling districts where BN did well the last round is seeing higher than average turnout numbers.

One way of interpreting this, according to the report, is that as a proportion, fewer voters who backed Harapan the last round turned up compared to BN supporters.

However, if Harapan did manage to convert some BN supporters, the turnout numbers won’t necessarily give the opposition coalition an advantage.
