This proposition seems to have disappeared because it does not expect Tun Mahathir’s influence to be widespread among Malay voters in almost all areas of the West Coast of Peninsular. However, the expectations of the authors whose influence in Kelantan and Terengganu is very limited is accurate. In addition, it is our hope that PAS will be defeated to serve beyond its very precise traditions.
However, there are two related articles written as early warning. First, the young voters’ attitude can change depending on the effectiveness of the contesting party campaign. Second, the article “GE 14: Pakatan Harapan Mengapa Johor?” Which revealed that Pakatan Harapan (PH) had attracted about 20% of the Malay population in Johor and its implications in other states of the Peninsular but apparently the Barisan Nasional (BN) was unaware of the facts or was aware of it but it was unable to expel Tun Mahathir’s influence.
An analysis of the Malay electoral votes through regression analysis revealed that 46.29% of the total Malay voters voted BN (Barisan Nasional). The highest in Negeri Sembilan and Johor is more than 65% and the lowest in Selangor is 34%. The average for Peninsular Malaysia, the percentage of Malay votes has dropped 17 points and Indian votes also dropped 17 points (compared to GE13). This is the main reason for the defeat of BN (Basrisan Nasional) this time.
It is not surprising that the federal government under the PH (Pakatan Harapan) was formed by the minority 58 representatives of Malay / Muslim PH (Pakatan Harapan) who needed cooperation from them as a party. Perhaps they will try to seize UMNO, PAS and Barisan Nasional (BN) parties in the upcoming PR and instead BN (Barisan Nasional) will try to reclaim the lost seats. Who will succeed is still far to predict because in UMNO, PAS and UN strongholds, its members prove to be very loyal to their respective parties. However, PH (Pakatan Harapan) now has the advantage of being a party that holds the federal government’s character.
