The poor performance of DAP and PKR followed reports of tense relations between the two parties, which could also be observed at the national level.

The heavy defeats of the Pakatan Harapan partners will no doubt once again bring Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim’s leadership into question as the coalition’s Chairman.

There have been calls for Anwar and other senior PH leaders to take a step back and give way to younger leaders to head the coalition.

However, Lim declined to comment when pressed on the matter. He only urged young people to come forward as potential candidates for the party in the future.
