MELAKA, Nov 20 — The Election Commission (EC) announced that Barisan Nasional (BN) has won 21 out of the 28 State Legislative Assembly seats in the Melaka election today.
EC chairman Datuk Abdul Ghani Salleh, who announced the election results, said Pakatan Harapan (PH) won five seats and Perikatan Nasional (PN) two seats.
He also said that a total of 326,068 people, or 65.85 per cent of voters, cast their ballots today.
“The total encompasses normal voters, early voters and postal voters,” he told a media conference here tonight, adding that the polling process went smoothly.
