Slim win a boost for BN ahead of Sabah, GE15

THERE was never any doubt that Barisan Nasional’s Mohd Zaidi Aziz would win the Slim by-election yesterday but the resounding victory, especially in Chinese and Indian polling stations, is a boost to the coalition’s confidence ahead of the Sabah state election and impending 15th general election, say analysts. 

“More than just winning Slim, they will be pleased to have won polling stations they had previously lost to Pakatan Harapan in GE14,” said Ilham Centre research director Dr Mohd Yusri Ibrahim.
