No need to slander Democratic Action Party even if you don’t support them, says Anwar

PH component parties – Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR), DAP and Parti Amanah Negara (Amanah) are contesting 214 seats in the election.
PH is also working with the Malaysian United Democratic Alliance (MUDA) which is contesting six seats.

In GE14, PH won 113 seats. At that time, its component parties were PKR, DAP, Amanah and Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (Bersatu).

Barisan Nasional (BN) won 79 seats while Parti Islam Se-Malaysia (PAS) won 18 seats. Twelve seats were won by other parties and independent candidates.

The PH administration lasted for 22 months before it fell apart due to infighting, with Bersatu leaving the coalition under the stewardship of Mr Muhyiddin Yassin who became prime minister in a new coalition called Perikatan Nasional (PN). PAS is a component party of PN. 

PN was subsequently replaced in August 2021 by the BN-led administration under the leadership of current caretaker prime minister Ismail Sabri Yaakob.

There will only be nine straight fights in GE15, with the other 213 constituencies seeing multi-cornered fights.

Altogether, 945 candidates will be contesting the elections which were called following political instability in the country that followed since PH’s historic win in 2018. 

More than 21 million eligible voters will cast their ballots this Saturday to elect 222 new members of the Lower House of parliament. Early voting took place on Tuesday.
