These are the results of the 2011 Sarawak state election:
BN won 55 seats or 77.46%
DAP won 12 seats or 16.9%
PKR won 3 seats or 4.23%
Independent won 1 seat or 1.4 %
And these are the results of the 2016 Sarawak state election:
BN won 72 seats or 87.8%
DAP won 7 seats or 8.5%
PKR won 3 seats or 3.7%
Of course, the more detailed post mortem is not yet in but we should begin to see something very soon. Already the numbers crunchers are crunching away even as we speak (you can see one such analysis below).
Anyway, what is very apparent yesterday is that the Sarawak voters have rejected Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad’s Anti-Najib Campaign (ANC) alliance with Lim Kit Siang and his DAP. And that is the price DAP paid yesterday for tangoing with the devil and thinking they can get away with it.
Mahathir and Kit Siang thought they could sell the Sarawak voters a donkey and pass it off as a thoroughbred racehorse. The problem is donkeys bray while horses neigh. And the Sarawak voters are not really as stupid as they thought. So the Sarawak voters said nay (not neigh) and sent DAP packing.
