KUALA LUMPUR, June 20 ― Support for Barisan Nasional in constituencies with Felda settlements are on the decline, according to a study by Rafizi Ramli’s Invoke.
The study claimed the decline was measurable in 46 out of 53 such constituencies, with the PKR vice-president saying this was as much as 23.9 per cent lower in some areas.
“Interestingly, the decline has been ongoing even before the latest Felda Global Ventures incident,” he said in a statement.
Of the seven parliamentary constituencies that did show an increase for BN support, all were contested by non-Malay Pakatan Harapan politicians.
These are Telok Intan, which saw a 10.3 per cent increase, Kulai (8.28 per cent), Bentong (4.6 per cent), Raub (3.02 per cent), Segamat (2.96 per cent), Tanjong Malim (1.83 per cent) and Bagan Datok (0.26 per cent).
Rafizi said the data suggested that BN would be vulnerable in the next general election.
