Best GE15 Results and News App

After close to 5 years, Malaysia’s 15th General Elections (GE15) is scheduled to take place real soon.

Some believe it will take place within a matter of weeks, while many others believe it will only take place some time early-to-mid next year (2023).

Despite the speculations, many citizens have started searching for more information on the polling dates to prepare themselves for the big day.

To keep voters in the know, we’ve decided to compile a list of useful apps one can download to stay updated with the latest GE15 news and results — check them out below:

The Vibes app covers Malaysian news, especially politics (GE15 included).

The Vibes is a fairly new publisher that was launched in 2020 by prominent entrepreneur Vinod Sekhar (founder of Petra Group).

Since inception, the company has quickly become a household name among urban residents in Malaysia, covering a wide spectrum of news especially in the areas of politics and business (GE15 news included).

The Vibes mainly distributes their news online, and have even launched their very own free app to bring timely updates to their readers via push notifications.

3. The Star

The Star is one of Malaysia’s leading news websites/apps covering GE15.

The Star is one of Malaysia’s most popular newspapers, and the primary source of information for many citizens.

As a mainstream newspaper, The Star covers everything in the country from A-Z, which includes politics and even GE15 predictions.

While the company initially started out with print newspapers, it has since evolved by offering content in the digital space as well.

4. Google News

Google News has many Malaysian publishers covering GE15 news and polling results.

Google News is one of the world’s most popular news aggregation apps, and a great place to stay updated with news from a wide range of publishers.

The app also syndicates content from nearly every mainstream Malaysian news publisher — making it a great place to stay updated with GE15 news and results.

The only drawback about Google News is the fact that they only aggregate content from “Google-verified” publishers, resulting in content from smaller / lesser-known publishers to be omitted — which is a downside for people trying to obtain opposing views on GE15 (or politics in general).

5. Malaysiakini – Malaysia News

Malaysiakini app has alternative views on politics and GE15 news/results.

Malaysiakini is a very popular news publisher in Malaysia, and has risen to prominence in recent years due to past General Elections.

While highly regarded as an alternative news outlet for political news, Malaysiakini covers a broad range of topics in 3 local languages (Malay, English, and Tamil).

During the past General Elections, Malaysiakini was one of the main websites for Malaysians to get GE15 news and polling results.
