DAP And PKR Wiped Out In Sarawak

Pakatan Harapan suffered another huge setback in Sarawak, after its mainstay DAP was crushed in the state elections while PKR was completely wiped out.

In the 2016 state election, DAP had won seven seats while PKR won three.

This time around, DAP only won two of the 24 seats it contested while PKR lost in all its 28 seats. Amanah, which contested eight seats, also failed to win a single one.

DAP retained only the Pending and Padungan seats but lost in Kota Sentosa, Batu Kawah, Pujut, Pelawan and Bukit Assek.

Kota Sentosa was previously held by DAP Sarawak Chief, Chong Chieng Jen who switched to Padungan, fuelling speculation that he was saving himself after becoming more and more unpopular among locals.

The crushing defeat in Sarawak is a second body blow for PH after the Melaka elections where the coalition won just five seats as opposed to the 15 it had won in the 14th General Election.

Earlier, it was reported that GPS had won the Sarawak election by a landslide, winning at least 74 of the 82 seats.
