  • Unless there is a Malay "tsunami" from rural voters precipitated by Dr.Mahathir's entry again in politics that's why it is probably a foregone conclusion that BN will emerge victorious at federal level in GE14..

  • Of course the redeliniation will favour BN. Every change in electoral boundaries in the history of democratic voting has been designed to favour the incumbent government. Otherwise why do it? So what is this “election analyst” blabbing on about? The reality is that successive opposition’s have always attempted to heap blame for their OWN failures on to BN’s dirty electoral tactics. To be brutally optimistic, BN’s dirty tactics would account for < 10% of the votes they win. BN do not win elections. Opposition’s lose elections. Then they turn around and blame BN for their own failings. You only have to look at the garbage which has PH has churned out in their latest visionless, directionless and totally useless manifesto to understand why PH is about to lose another election
