Jika tuntutan DAP, Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR), Parti Kebangsaan Sarawak (SNAP) dan PAS hendak dipenuhi, hal ini bermakna Suruhanjaya Pilihan Raya (SPR) perlu menambah 45 kerusi lagi. Keseluruhan kerusi yang diminta oleh semua parti terbabit ialah 116 sedangkan Dewan Undangan Negeri Sarawak hanya mempunyai 71 kerusi. - Jeniri Amir
THE PKR-SNAP FIGHT FOR SEATS. Jeniri Amir, a senior lecturer at the Universiti Malaysia Sarawak, is a native and his analysis Perebutan Kerusi Tanda Tak Sepakat (Berita Harian, 29 Mac) is detailed and, more importantly, frank
For a party that managed just 1 seat in the last state election just before the so-called political tsunami that aided the Opposition, the PKR's demand to be given 52 of the 71 seats that are up for grabs reflects total greed. SNAP which also won 1 seat in the last election, is asking for 40. DAP and PAS want 18 and 6, which Jeniri describes as appropriate..
p.s. I hope someone in Berita Harian would translate Jeniri Amir's articles for the international audience, since the anti-Sarawak movement seems more active abroad rather than here in Malaysia.
