If DAP, PKR, PAS and its offshoot Parti Amanah Negara (Amanah) fail to come together before the 14th general election, analysts believe Barisan Nasional (BN) could reclaim control of Selangor, the country’s wealthiest and most industrialised state.
They warned that Selangor voters, either tired of the parties’ perpetual bickering or confused by the lack of a clear alternative to BN, could decide to end the current administration’s brief two-term rule.
… Dr Oh Ei Sun, senior fellow at S. Rajaratnam School of International Studies at Singapore’s Nanyang Technological University, agreed that the opposition’s squabbling would only confuse voters and possibly lead to some abstaining from casting their ballots during the polls.
“Certainly, it will only confuse the voters, even making them unwilling to vote as the choices are not clear,” he said.
