S'WAK POLLS As BN coasted to an easy win in the Sarawak state election, the results show that they have won more than two-thirds of the 82 seats available, with 87.8 percent of the House.
PBB, led by newly re-instated Sarawak Chief Minister Adenan Satem, won all 40 of the seats they contested for a 100 percent win streak.
Another BN component party which won 100 percent of their contested seats was Sarawak Peoples' Party (PRS), winning all 11.
This is followed by BN direct candidates, who won 11 out of 13 seats contested, at 85 percent.
Though Sarawak Progressive Democratic Party (SPDP) only contested five seats, they managed to win three, putting their win at 60 percent.
Sarawak United Peoples' Party (SUPP) which won seven out of their contested 13 seats, had an overall winning percentage of 54 percent.
Combined, BN won 72 of the 82 available seats, which gave them their 87.8 percent super-majority in the House.
Meanwhile, the opposition suffered a crushing defeat, with DAP losing five out of 12 urban seats it had previously held, as well as being defeated in all the bumiputera seats it contested this round.
DAP only managed to win seven out of the 31 seats it contested, giving them a winning percentage of only 23 percent.
Though PKR managed to defend all three of its seats, they did not win any new ones.
Contesting in 41 seats, their winning percentage was a meagre seven percent.
Meanwhile, candidates from PAS, Parti Amanah Negara, New Sarawak Native People's Party, Star, and independents did not win any of their contested seats.
This gave the opposition 10 seats out of the 82 in the state assembly.
Unrestrained power in your hands
For almost 20 years, Malaysiakini has stayed true to the cause of providing the Malaysian public with the truth. We believe that with unadulterated information, the people will obtain power to make informed decisions.
Decisions which lead to a healthy, robust nation - ours!
Keep the truth alive. Support your robust, independent media. You have the unrestrained power to do so.
Who says it's not our fault?
We aren’t trained to take responsibility.
Everytime we observe an injustice - and choose to keep mum - the prevalence of injustice becomes our fault.
Astute journalism paves the way for the public to be continuously furnished with the fastidious truth. You are continuously empowered to act and to uphold the integrity of the nation.
The Rakyat owns Malaysiakini
We choose to take a risk on independent media because we believe that only through independent reporting can one be NOT beholden to the interest of businesses or organisations. This allows us to really pursue the truth - aggressively.
Independent for 20 years.
The victorious people
In the light of holding the truth to power, Malaysiakini will continue to uphold its mission of providing credible news to its discerning public. Your support for Malaysiakini is always treasured as a testament of innate nationalism. Your victory is our history.
Quietly. Effectively. Says it all. Malaysiakini.
Speaking truth to power
When we embarked on this journey 20 years ago, we knew we would face intimidation, harassment, raids, arrests and perhaps even jail terms. We got into this venture with our eyes wide open.
The main reason we have survived this long - when many others have folded - is partly because we are prudent in our finances. But while we may be tightfisted in our budgeting, we do not hold back when it comes to speaking truth to power and holding power to account. And certainly, this new administration will not stop us from continuing to do so.
