As PKR-DAP battle over six seats, BN wins two seats uncontested

Up for grabs are 82 state legislative assembly seats, including for 11 new constituencies carved out in last year's redelineation exercise.

Pakatan Harapan may be off to a messy start, after PKR called for seat re-negotiations at the 11th hour yesterday.

This is after news broke out that Sarawak PKR chief Baru Bian may sign a letter allegedly issued by party deputy president Azmin Ali authorising PKR representatives to contest in Tasik Biru, Mambong, Simanggang, Bukit Semuja and Mulu.

Sarawak DAP chief Chong Chieng Jen retaliated by saying they would contest in Batu Kitang should PKR field candidates in those five seats.

It will not be a walk in the park for BN either, with SUPP, UPP and SPDP and Teras expected to get into the ring against each other in Tasik Biru, Batu Kawah and Bawang Assan.

Parties have until 10am to submit their nominations. Sarawak goes to the polls on May 7.

PKR and DAP face each other in six seats - Batu Kitang, Mambong, Ngemah, Simanggang, Mulu and Murum. 

PKR deputy president Azmin Ali confims he instructed Sarawak PKR chief Baru Bian to issue authorisation letter to five candidates for seats earlier allocated to DAP.

DAP secretary-general Lim Guan Eng feels "shortchanged" by PKR over the seat dispute.

PKR candidate's nomination for Pantai Damai rejected as proposer is bankrupt.

BN strongman Awang Tengah Ali Hassan wins Bukit Sari constituency uncontested. BN also won Bukit Kota uncontested.
