Now, Barisan Nasional emerged victorious in the Sarawak Election yesterday, winning 72 out of 82 seats in the polls, returning 5 of the 12 seats won by DAP in the last state polls in 2011 to BN.
And joining us in the studio, to give us a deeper insight into the Election, is Ng Yeen Seen, from prominent think tank, the Asian Strategy & Leadership Institute
Yeen Seen, thanks for joining us on 7edition.
Alright, Yeen Seen why do you think Team Adenan won big, would you attribute the victory to popularity, or other factors like, the rift between DAP and PKR?
REASONS FOR DAP'S SETBACK
Now, DAP was the biggest loser in the election, winning only 7 out of 30 seats contested, and losing the 8 seats the party won in the 2011 elections, why do you think this occurred?
EFFECTS OF DAP & PKR RIFT
3) Going back to the issues between DAP and PKR, do you think the rift could affect the Pakatan Harapan coalition?
POOR TURNOUT AMONG CHINESE VOTERS
4) There was poor voter turnout among Chinese voters, in your opinion was this in protest of DAP?
WILL BN'S VICTORY SET TONE FOR NEXT GE?
5) Does BN's landslide win in Sarawak have any bearing for the ruling coalition in the peninsula, do you think it could set the tone for the next general election.
