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.
