Dr M hopes palace will expedite PM appointment
Prime minister-designate Dr Mahathir Mohamad said there was an urgency for the Yang di-Pertuan Agong to appoint him as the head of government.
He said Pakatan Harapan MPs have signed a declaration to state their support for him as prime minister. He said the coalition hoped he would be sworn in by 5pm today.
“There is no government now… The interim government has ceased to exist, as of last night,” he said.
Pointing to the Federal Constitution, Mahathir said the Agong was obliged to appoint an MP, that commands the confidence of the majority of the Dewan Rakyat, as prime minister.
He said any confusion regarding Harapan’s numbers in Parliament have already been cleared.
Pakatan Harapan, an informal coalition, had claimed victory last night.
“There is no government right now. I hear the Attorney-General says he is advising the government…Bullshit,” – Dr Mahathir Mohamad.
Asked whether the King doesn’t like him, Dr Mahathir says he doesn’t know why someone wouldn’t. When I asked if that’s not the reason for the delay than what is, he said “there’s a delay to everything…for example, I was sleepy this morning.”

BN heavyweight GE14 casualties: 8 ministers, 19 deputies
GE14 | As the dust settled after the 14th general election, which saw BN chairperson Najib Abdul Razak lead the coalition to its first loss since independence, several of his lieutenants also met with defeat.
While Najib won comfortably in Pekan with a 24,859-vote majority, a total of eight ministers and 19 deputy ministers were defeated in parliamentary contests.
Not all were incumbent MPs, as some were senators contesting in the general election.
The ministers defeated were Liow Tiong Lai (transport), Dr S Subramanaim (health) and Mah Siew Keong (plantations industries and commodities).
The trio also happen to be the chiefs of BN components MCA, MIC and Gerakan respectively.
Other ministers who were defeated included Shabery Cheek (agriculture and agro-based industry), Johari Abdul Ghani (finance), Salleh Said Keruak (communications and multimedia), as well as Jamil Khir Baharom and Abdul Rahman Dahlan (Prime Minister’s Department).

PETALING JAYA: Electoral reforms group Bersih 2.0 has called on the Election Commission (EC) to assume responsibility for all discrepancies in the voting process, and warned it will not hesitate to take legal or other action jointly with the people against the agency.
It said it has received a slew of complaints of problems encountered during today’s polling.
- Cancellation of names in the voter register not done completely after the issuance of ballot papers;
- No official stamp on ballot papers;
- Registered voters unable to vote because others voted using their names;
- Problematic ballot papers – perforation/marks/incomplete names; and
- Ballot papers for state/parliamentary constituencies inserted in the wrong ballot box.
Bersih said these discrepancies could lead to cheating and manipulation of ballots cast.

By noon, three police reports lodged on electoral discrepancies
GE14 | After some four hours after voting for the general election began, three police reports were lodged over alleged electoral discrepancies.
The reports were lodged over claims of marked ballot papers and a voter who claimed his name had been “used” by an unknown individual.
In Penang, voter Goh Por Cheong said he was informed by an Election Commission officer that he had already cast his ballot, even though he had not done so.
Goh, who was queuing to vote at Sekolah Rendah Jenis Kebangsaan Cina Kong Min Pusat in Air Itam from 8.30am, said he suspected his name has been used by another person.
“I discovered that my name has been struck out off the list by an EC officer, who told me that I have already voted.
“But I have not voted and I was waiting in line. I suspect my name has been used by another person,” Goh stated in the police report sighted by Malaysiakini.
Meanwhile, two police reports were lodged in Batu, Kuala Lumpur, by voters Mohmad Shahrul Razali and Mohd Faizal Anuar – who discovered that their ballot papers had a ‘dot’ in the box for the BN’s candidates.
According to their police report, the ‘dot’ was placed above the letter ‘H’ in the BN candidate’s name Dr Dominic Lau Hoe Chai.
They also claimed a request for new ballot papers from the polling centre chief further revealed that the same ‘dot’ could be seen on the same spot on all ballot papers.
“Because of that no new ballot papers can be issued and I was told to continue with the voting process.
“I alerted the polling agent and I was instructed to lodge a police report,” said Mohd Shahrul.
In Shah Alam, voter Nurfariza reported another case of an unknown individual who allegedly used her identity to vote for the parliament seat and the Batu Tiga state seat.
