Just look at this constituency redelineation proposal for Sarawak and you will understand what is at stake.

If this can happen in Sarawak, just wait and see what is in store for the peninsula.

It explains why with only 47 per cent of the popular vote, the BN was able to win the majority of seats in Parliament.

Pakatan, with 51 per cent of the popular vote, was unable to clinch power.

Back then, I felt that opposition parties would need something like 55 per cent or more of the popular vote to win a comfortable majority of parliamentary seats.

If there is a fresh redelineation exercise in the peninsula, would Pakatan then need something like 60 per cent or more of the popular vote to win a clear majority of parliamentary seats?

This is why we have to pay careful attention to the redelineation of seats.

  1. It won’t be just Sarawak. Its the entire country. With only 31% of the Malay approval rating, and two years more to GE, Najib and UMNO will need to win with these kinds of numbers..Singapore assesment of Najib is the most accurate – Opportunistic, there is no real plan, no real idea, he will (allegedly) grab hold of any opportunity to cheat, lie, buy until he is forced to out..

  2. Safe Deposit of Sarawak being expanded to counter peninsular’s declining stocks.

    BR1M increment sought by Gerakan Mah is irresponsible to future generation only to secure survival of irrelevant Gelakan?

  3. Gerrymandering is the hallmark of Barisan Nasional.
    That is why Najob can hold on to power with minority votes.
    Bersih 5.0 should come soon.
