BARISAN Nasional is expected to win the most seats in Selangor in the 14th general election following the Election Commission’s redelineation exercise, said state government think tank Institut Darul Ehsan (IDE).

IDE chief executive Professor Dr Mohammad Redzuan Othman said based on 2013 voting trends, BN was expected to win 20 seats, while PAS would win nine, DAP (15) and PKR (12).

  • Hope that unprincipled, back-stabbing, Machiavellian PAS' lackey Azmin lose his seat!

  • "Redelineation" is a sophisticated hypocrisy for ROBERRY of Selangor Rakyat right to vote.

  • " .....IDE chief executive Professor Dr Mohammad Redzuan Othman said BN was expected to win 20 seats, while PAS would win nine, DAP (15) and PKR (12).... " ....... Do you mean to say Bersatu and Amanah will have ZEROOOOO seats ??? We all know IDE is Azmin's propaganda machine to spread "fake" news and surveys. Is it now implying that PH must rope in PAS to rule Selangor? Is Azmin wanting his master to retain power?

  • IDE’S projection is irrelevant, as it is based on the 2013 voting trends which have completely be altered. In the 2013 election, PAS garnered 70% Chinese electoral support, which is now reduced to zero. Similarly, Amanah and Bersatu were non-existent in 2013; now they are major draws of Malay votes from PAS and Umno.
    Instead of making fictitious forecast, shouldn’t IDE come to ground to study on something that is closer to realities?
    What motivated IDE to carry out such a valueless study in the first place?
