Published on  |  Modified on

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.

Crushing defeat

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.
