PARLIAMENT | The Dewan Rakyat has unanimously passed the motion to increase the state seats in Sabah from 60 to 73.

All 158 parliamentarians from both sides of the divide voted for the motion and no lawmaker voted against it.

This is despite concerns raised by PAS Pendang parliamentarian Awang Hashim and Upko Tuaran parliamentarian Wilfred Madius Dungau in their debate earlier today that there is gerrymandering in the redelineation exercise.
