PN anticipates Pulai and Simpang Jeram send a strong message to Anwar

PADANG Terap MP Nurul Amin Hamid listed the main points of the Malay factor that he claimed is against Prime Minister (PM) Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim in the upcoming by-elections in Pulai and Simpang Jeram in Johor.

(In Pulai and Simpang Jeram, I am confident that Malay voters will once again send the same message to @anwaribrahim)He then added a poster along with the Twitter post with a heading that screams:

“Anwar, the first PM, did not receive support from the Malay community.”

Moreover, it is indeed a historical fact that Anwar is now a PM who has received less Malay support in the political history of Malaysia.In the poster, the Perikatan Nasional (PN) MP lists the following:In 15th General Election (GE15), the Pakatan Harapan (PH) led by Anwar only got 11% of Malay votes while in the six-state elections, overall 83% of Malay voters rejected Anwar and chose PN.It added that the alliance between PH and Barisan Nasional (BN) lost terribly in Kedah, Kelantan and Terengganu. It also lost many seats to the PN in Selangor, Penang and Negri Sembilan.Furthermore, it also boasts that in Selangor, the bastion of the PH, PN made a big entry winning 22 seats in the state legislative assembly with a whopping 73% of Malay votes.Meanwhile, the postal votes were also against PH-BN and favoured PN. The majority of these voters are from the Malay community. The PN MP also notes that the Felda voters were also not in favour of Anwar.“There has never been such an incident in history with a PM being rejected by the Malays, the majority community in Malaysia,” it added.Will Johor also show the same trend? That is the big question, and the answer will be known on the night of Sept 9. – Sept 3, 2023
