With the five-day hung parliament coming to an end, Malaysians are seeing the election of Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim as the 10th Prime Minister.

Leading up to the triumphant decision, Malaysians have come up with several hilarious memes to cope with waiting.

Malaysians have been at the edge of their seats since Saturday, 19 November, when citizens cast their ballots to vote for their next leader this 15th General Election (GE15).

From the nail-biting vote tallying to a hung parliament, where coalitions were having secret meetings with one another, many Malaysians were in a spiral as to what the future held for Malaysia.

Well, to recap the last five days of hung parliament, let SAYS brighten up your day with the most hilarious general election memes courtesy of Malaysians who were tired of waiting for a decision.

As usual, these are just memes and therefore aren't meant to be taken seriously okay? Let's revisit some of the best memes that got us through the tough waiting period.

5. Datuk Seri Anwar can't even cut his hair in peace with Malaysians slowly turning into the ever-theorising Swiftie (Taylor Swift) fandom

A Malaysian took to Twitter to begin theorising, after Datuk Seri Anwar was radio silent on the progress of GE15 elections. Probably just really needed a haircut, Malaysians chose to believe there are 'hints' around. At this point, we'll be putting Sherlock Holmes out of business.
