8.35 pm

Official results from 26/26 streams show :
BN: 5,324
PAS: 4,134

Majority : 1,190

Unofficial results show that CHINESE voters have returned their support to BN.
Galas DAP election chief Thomas Su says in 2008, PAS won 1,784 votes in three areas where Chinese voters are prominent - Pulai, Kampung Baru and Bandar Lama. In THIS by-election, it won 1,578 votes. It lost 206 votes, or 4.92 percent

Commentary by Raja Petra:
By the way, Umno is most likely going to win the Galas by-election today. And the Umno people are going to say that this is Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah’s win and not Umno’s win. If Najib had gone down to Galas to campaign then PAS would have won instead.

Some say PAS purposely ‘allowed’ Umno to win as a ‘favour’ to Tengku Razaleigh who is fighting hard to get the oil royalty for Kelantan. The word on the ground was that the PAS machinery was told NOT to attack Tengku Razaleigh. This, in fact, happened in 2008 and that was why Gua Musang went to Tengku Razaleigh. And I got this from the horse’s mouth.And of course the Batu Sapi by-election in Sabah is a foregone conclusion."

Commentary by Terence of The Sun: " Ab Aziz of BN has very good PR and he is a local boy. Dr Zul of PAS an introvert."

Linda Tsen of BN is set to win with a big margin in Batu Sapi (Sabah).
EC official results shows BN has won in 9 out of 10 polling streams

Commentary by Anil Netto:
Simultaneously holding of by-elections on both sides of the South China Sea divided the Pakatan's limited resources.
If the opposition votes in Batu Sapi are combined, the BN would have won by around 3,200 votes - that is, a reduced majority. So as expected, the Sapp-PKR failure to work together played into the BN's hand.

BN appears to win back Chinese votes which they had lost in the 2008 general election.
Galas has two Chinese-majority areas, in which Pulai is considered a BN stronghold.
