BN takes Galas and Batu Sapi

(TMI) Unofficial results show Barisan Nasional (BN) has wrested the Galas state seat in Kelantan from PAS and retained the Batu Sapi parliamentary seat in Sabah, in a significant victory for the ruling coalition.

The wins will give a major fillip to Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak and BN amid widespread speculation that he will call snap polls by the first quarter of next year.

In Galas, with more than 80 per cent of votes counted, BN’s Abdul Aziz Yusoff is already ahead of PAS’s Dr Zulkefli Mohamed by more than 1,000 votes.

And in Batu Sapi, PKR has already conceded defeat with BN’s Datin Linda Tsen Thau Lin and her campaign workers already celebrating victory ahead of official results later tonight.
