According to China Press, the vote counting process was stalled for a moment when the polling station there experienced electricity problems.

Tenaga Nasional Berhad (TNB) said that they sent someone to perform maintenance work but did not clarify what the issue that caused the blackout was. They clarified that they are still in contact with the maintenance team and is currently investigating the power outage.

When asked, they said that other polling centres had experienced a slight electrical disturbance which was resolved shortly after. The photos shared by Juwairiya showed the officers continuing their counting by using backup light sources.
