SHAH ALAM - Perikatan Nasional (PN) has won 60 per cent of seats contested in the state polls, said chairman Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin.

“I want to congratulate all 146 candidates who have won out of 245 seats that were contested.

“This is a big win and it proves that the support of voters towards PM is great,” he added.

In Selangor, PN has denied Pakatan Harapan its two third majority which it boasted in the past.

“We have won 22 seats out of 56 state seats in Selangor in which PH has claimed to be its biggest base.

“Barisan Nasional (BN) had only managed to win only five seats. This goes to show that the Malays are supporting PN now especially in Selangor,” he said during a press conference after the official vote tallying.

The press conference was held PN’s base at a hotel here.

It was also attended by the coalition’s stalwarts; Gerakan president Datuk Dominic Lau, Datuk Seri Azmin Ali, Datuk Seri Shahidan Kassim, among others.
