GE14 uphill battle for Dr Mahathir’s Bersatu, says Politweet study

Looi Sue-Chern

It is forecasted that Bersatu, headed by chairman Dr Mahathir Mohamad, will find it challenging to win straight fights against Barisan Nasional, much less three-cornered fights with PAS in the picture. – The Malaysian Insight file pic, January 16, 2018.

BERSATU and PKR may be contesting more seats than their allies in the Pakatan Harapan opposition coalition, but they will face a tougher general election than their allies.

Such were the findings of the study “Election Forecast for Pakatan Harapan (PH) in Peninsular Malaysia (GE14)” conducted by political social media research outfit Politweet. The study found that most voters in the 52 federal seats to be contested by Bersatu were more inclined to support Barisan Nasional.

  • Najib is a cheater all his life. HE WOULD NEVER GO INTO GE KNOWING HE COULD LOSE. Just do not have the character for it. He has stacked things overwhelmingly in his favour ALL HIS LIFE IN EVERYTHING. The real problem is Hadi's PAS playing spoiler - the fact is Najib schemed it just after his GE-13 which is YEARS before he had to face the contest - he does not take chances - even Anwar jailing was schemed that far backed.
