Pakatan Harapan and Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (Bersatu) forming the next government is one of several potential outcomes, according to a preliminary survey by PKR vice-president Rafizi Ramli's Invoke Centre for Policy Initiatives (I-CPI).

In this scenario, an I-CPI simulation found that Harapan and Bersatu would win 126 parliamentary seats, BN 96, while PAS would win zero seats.

However, this outcome is dependent on several factors, namely, that half of those who did not vote in the previous election cast their ballots; Chinese voter support for the opposition coalition is at GE13 levels; and that they can win over 38 percent of PAS supporters.

If Chinese support is at GE13 levels, but non-voting percentages and PAS support remain the same, then BN would win the election with 130 seats, Harapan and Bersatu 92 seats, and PAS zero.
