So, this year’s general election (GE14) saw a huge wave of millennials going to the polls for the first time ever. It also happened to be the most historic (and the most kancheong) election ever.
Barisan Nasional (BN) is no longer the federal government for the first time since independence in 1957, Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir is officially the oldest world leader, and we have our very first female Deputy Prime Minister! So, it’s a pretty big deal, needless to say.
However, as every Malaysian would know, election night (9th May) and the following day (10th May) were the most stressful couple of days the nation has experienced in quite a while. So, what better way for millennial voters to cope with all that than by making Twitter memes out of the entire situation? Well, here’s a chronological compilation of some of the funniest memes to come out of the whirlwind that was GE14. Enjoy!
1. While votes were being counted
