Sarawak Votes 2016 - Rural Vote Bank

PBB is the lynchpin of Barisan Nasional in Sarawak. It won 35 of the 71 seats at the last elections. And is expected to contest 40 out of 82 seats. And its strength is in rural Sarawak where 66 seats are located. PBB and its allied parties are expected to hold on to its rural base as by all accounts it is going into this election riding a wave of popularity for the new Chief Minister. But will this translate into support for all Barisan Nasional candidates? Recent surveys show that Sarawakians are happy with Barisan Nasional at the state level but not as happy with Barisan Nasional at the Federal level. Today we ask how is PBB dealing with this contradiction.
