Why Barisan Nasional Won the Johor State Elections

The Johor state elections took place last weekend. Barisan Nasional secured 40 out of 56 seats, a 2/3 majority victory, Pakatan Harapan won 12 seats, MUDA 1 and Perikatan Nasional 3. This is the 3rd thumping defeat in a row for Harapan and its allies after Sarawak and Melaka. On today’s episode, we take a closer look at the results and discuss what they could mean for our political landscape moving forward.
