3.29am: The final tally is BN - 133, Pakatan Rakyat - 89. Pakatan scores a net gain of seven seats. 

Here are some quick observations: 

NONE 1) Pakatan lost Kedah. The three states that Pakatan Rakyat has retained - Selangor, Penang and Kelantan - were all won with a two-thirds majority:

Selangor - Pakatan 44, BN 12;

Penang - Pakatan 30, BN 10;

Kelantan - Pakatan 33, BN 12 (reduced majority but retains 2/3rds majority)

2) MCA is left with seven parliamentary seats (down from 15), while Gerakan is left with one (down from two). The sole Gerakan seat is Simpang Renggam in Johor, which was successfully defended by Liang Teck Meng.

3) DAP is the biggest winner (it gained 10 seats overall), while PKR and PAS lost one and two seats respectively compared to the 2008 results.

4) The seven additional seats gained by Pakatan are from Sabah (two seats) and Sarawak (five seats).

MIC - 4 (gain 1)

Gerakan - 1 (lost 1)

NONE 6) Early calculations indicate that Pakatan Rakyat has won slightly more of the popular vote than BN nationwide - 50% against 49% (1% others).

3.18am: MCA, which contested 37 parliamentary seats and 90 state seats, suffered its worst defeat in its history - winning seven parliamentary seats and 11 state seats.

It also meant that MCA lost more than 50 percent of the seats it won in the last election. It won 15 parliamentary seats and 31 state seats then.

2.56am: From winning all but one in 2008, Sabah BN has this time lost 11 state seats, putting 12 on the opposition bench when the state assembly convenes.

DAP - 2 (Kota Kinabalu, Sandakan)

2.35am: UPDATE - Pakatan Rakyat has picked up 21 seats from BN but lost 15, with a net gain of seven seats. While there is a swing among Chinese voters to Pakatan, the swing among the Malays appears uneven.

2.23am: Although split votes cost non-BN parties a few seats, a preference for a two-party system is evident among Sabahans.

NONE Local parties Star and SAPP and Independent candidates mostly lost their deposits, with voters concentrating on either Pakatan Rakyat or BN candidates.

It may call to question the issue of Sabah autonomy, which is the core issue championed by the two local parties.

2.03am: BN has retained both Perak and Terengganu with a slim majority. It will rule Perak with a three-seat majority (BN 31, Pakatan 28), while in Terengganu, it has a two-seat majority (BN 17, Pakatan 15).

There, Devamany lost to Dr Michael Jeyakumar (PKR), while party secretary-general S Murugesan lost in his bid for the Kota Raja parliamentary seat.

NONE 1.50am: Negri Sembilan DAP chief Anthony Loke ( left ) says BN’s victory in taking two seats previously held by Pakatan Rakyat is a sign that the opposition coalition must strive to win over and convince rural voters.

“We see this (lost) as a sign we must work hard to penetrate the rural seats,” he says when summarising Pakatan’s performance in the state.

State seats Pakatan lost this time are Ampangan , previously held by PKR, and Paroi , once in PAS’ grasp.

Even so, DAP added to their seat count by winning Chennah , through Loke.

1.50am: The tally so far is BN 124, Pakatan 74 with DAP 35, PAS 19 and PKR 20.

1.49am: Abdul Aziz Sheikh Fadzir (BN) has beaten PKR secretary-general Saifuddin Nasution in Kulim-Bandar Baru. Perkasa leader Zulkifli Noordin won this seat for PKR in 2008 before becoming a BN-friendly MP.

BN - 26,782    

PKR - 24,911

Majority - 1,871

NONE 1.45am: Lajim Ukin (PKR) ( right ) loses the Beaufort seat in Sabah against Azizah Mohd Dun (BN) by a sliver of 673 votes.

This refutes PKR's earlier announcement that Lajim had won the parliamentary seat.

The official tally is:

PKR - 12,514

BN  - 12,827

Star - 409

Lajim, however, won the state seat of Klias by an even smaller 179-vote lead.

NONE 1.20am: MCA president Dr Chua Soi Lek ( left ) says the party will not take up any government positions, following its dismal performance in the 13th general election.

NONE 1am: In Penampang , Sabah, Ignatius Dorell Leiking (PKR) ( centre in photo ), who defeated veteran politician Bernard Dompok (BN), refuses to be called a “giant-killer”.

"I did not defeat a giant. We are just taking over, and will continue the good work he has done. Of course the bad ones we will not take up.

BN - 15,821

DAP - 15,468

According to the Election Commission website, BN is confirmed to maintain in power in five states - Terengganu, Pahang, Perlis, Negri Sembilan and Malacca.

Pahang - 29 seats out of 42

Negeri Sembilan - 19 seats out of 26

Malacca - 20 seats out of 28

Perkasa president Ibrahim Ali 12.39am: Ibrahim Ali (Independent) ( right ) loses in Pasir Mas , Kelantan. The seat is won by Nik Mohamad Abduh Nik Abdul Aziz (PAS) with a 8,047-vote majority.

IND - 25,384

12.39am: Caretaker Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak (BN) has defended his Pekan parliamentary seat in Pahang; defeating Fariz Musa (PKR) with a majority of 35,613 votes.

12.21am: Khairy Jamaluddin (BN) retains his Rembau parliamentary seat in Negri Sembilan with a 18,357 lead.

12.20am: In Negri Sembilan it's good news for DAP, which wins in all 11 seats it is contesting.

Not so for PAS, which loses all 10 seats contested, including the Paroi state seat, the only one which it won in 2008.

12:24pm: PKR wins Batu Pahat in Johor. Puad Zarkashi (BN) lost with a majority of about 1,700 to Mohd Idris Jusi (PKR).

12.14am: Penang BN state chief Teng Chang Yeow said the poor performance in the general election was never expected and perhaps the people of Penang think DAP can better speak for them.

NONE "Generally people in Penang had rejected BN," he admitted.

When asked if BN will still carry out projects promised by them, he reminded that the free port status and the Padang Tembak flat renewal project would only materialise if BN captured Penang.

"Now the people should let the new government to offer their plans for them."

As for the other three housing projects (Air Putih, Air Itam and Paya Terubong) promised by the caretaker Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak, he said he need to check with 1MDB on that.

Anyway, he agreed that Penang BN needs to do a lot of soul-searching.

To add to his disappointment, BN/MCA candidate Loke Poh Chye had lost his deposit, which is a first for BN Penang.

12.01am: Kamarul Baharin Abbas (PKR) unofficially wins in Teluk Kemang in Negri Sembilan. He defeats Mogan Velayatham (BN) and Kamarudin Kumaraval Abdullah (Independent).

However, the same Kamarul is believed to have lost in the Ampangan state seat to Abu Ubaidah Redza (BN), pending official results.

NONE 11.50pm: In Kelantan’s Kuala Krai , Dr Hatta Ramli (PAS) ( left ) defeats Tuan Aziz Tuan Hamat (BN) while in the Manek Urai state seat, Mohd Fauzi Abdullah (PAS) beats Che Jalal Muda (BN).

11.48pm: An analysis of Penang's results shows that DAP won all 19 state seats with higher majorities. PKR took 10, and PAS one at Permatang Pasir . Pakatan had an increase of one seat.

BN won three Parliament seats - Balik Pulau , Tasek Gelugor and Kepala Batas , and 10 state seats. BN lost one state seat, but has an  increase  of one Parliament seat compared to the last election.

This is a worse defeat than in 2008. Indeed MCA and Gerakan are completely slain in Penang.

A total whitewash of MCA and Gerakan candidates showed that the Chinese community have made up their minds about wanting to change the federal government as well.

The results also showed that wrong selection of candidates cost PKR dearly in Balik Pulau and Umno in Seberang Jaya .

NONE The support of the Chinese community has surged, probably due to BN's overdoing in its campaign via the 1Malaysia Penang Welfare Club, which has been throwing money in areas where DAP was contesting. It shows Penangites reject money politics.

Penangites have also been annoyed with the flooding of 1Malaysia flags all over the island, creating an eyesore in several heritage sites.

But it's unlikely there was a swing in Malay votes as both PKR and Umno lost Balik Pulau and Seberang Jaya respectively, more to the wrong selection of candidates.

This led to internal sabotage as in the case of Umno.

In Balik Pulau, PKR's candidate's was not a local, and his loss confirms that rural constituents prefer someone from within their community.

11.46pm: In Sabah, Joseph Kitingan (BN) edges past to defeat little brother Jeffrey (Star) to retain Keningau , however, with a 346-vote slide in majority from 2008.

NONE 11.45pm: Unofficial - Malacca Chief Minister Mohd Ali Rustam is on the verge of losing the Bukit Katil parliament seat by a majority of slightly above 4,000 votes against PKR Youth chief Shamsul Iskandar Mohd Akin ( right ).
