Hundreds of Pakatan Harapan (PH) supporters came out onto the streets in Ipoh on Saturday night.

Tumultuous celebrations erupted after trends showed that PH led other political parties in the 15th General Election (GE15), marked by surprising victories and defeats.

Dancing and celebrating with loud honks, they flooded onto the main roads in the city centre, leading to massive traffic jams.

As PH supporters danced euphorically at a busy junction, a car filled with Barisan Nasional (BN) supporters got stuck in a jam.

Not to be outshined, the BN supporters waved their flags from their cars as PH supporters danced and cheered around them.

It was a euphoric scene that could have been mistaken for a Christmas or New Year celebration.

Facebook user Rachel Lai posted the video, which has since gone viral with more than 12,000 shares.

Another Period Of Great Political Instability

Analysts predicted tumultuous weeks for Malaysia as there was no clear winner in GE15.

PAS is the biggest winner on the national stage with 44 seats, followed by DAP, which won 40 parliamentary seats, two less than in 2018.

PKR has won only 31 Parliamentary seats out of the 102 they contested. 

Amanah won eight Parliamentary seats, while Umno has won only 26 Parliamentary seats out of 120 contested.

It all depends on who Gabungan Parti Sarawak (GPS) and Gabungan Rakyat Sabah (GRS) will work with.

Both have 22 and six seats, respectively.
