MELAKA: Barisan Nasional (BN) won a simple majority of 21 seats out of 28 in the Melaka state election, which is just enough for the coalition to form a new state government.

BN took back two seats from Pakatan Harapan (PH) which defeated BN in the 14th General Election.
Political Analyst Dr Azmi Hassan, in an interview with Malaysia World News (MWN), prior to the polls, had predicted BN would win and PH would come closer as second runner up, while PN would find it an uphill task to make it.
According to the Analyst, BN was smart to install many new young candidates in many stations while nominating Datuk Seri Sulaiman Md Ali as the Chief Minister of Melaka.
BN’s candidate for Lendu, Sulaiman has managed to secure his state seat with a strong majority.

Sulaiman is reportedly garnered 4,251 votes over Perikatan Nasional’s (PN) Major (Rtd) Abdullah Mahadi (1,360) and Pakatan Harapan’s (PH) Mohamad Asri Ibrahim (1,142).
