Why Barisan Nasional won the Johor state election

Multiple tragedies in Johor - NAJIB RAZAK/FACEBOOK, 9 MARCH 2022

At the recent Johor state election, Barisan Nasional secured 40 out of 56 seats for a two-thirds victory.

Pakatan Harapan won 12 seats, Muda one and Perikatan Nasional three.

This was the third thumping defeat in a row for PH and its allies after losses in Sarawak and Malacca.
