Die Wahlen im Bundesstaat Sarawak: Der Beginn einer langsamen Transformation des Parteiensystems?
On May 20th, state elections in Sarawak, East Malaysia, were held. As expected, the ruling coalition was able to win a large majority of seats (62 out of 71) in the state parliament DUN (Dewan Undangan Negeri). Nevertheless, the vote was interpreted as a victory for the opposition, especially for the Democratic Action Party (DAP). Some observers even described the polls as a fundamental restructuring of the political landscape. For the first time, the opposition was united and particularly in urban areas the Barisan Nasional was punished. The article analyses the election results against the backdrop of the peculiar structure of the party system in Sarawak.
