KOTA DAMANSARA, 3 May: Research from the Malaysian Armed Forces Intelligence Corps (ATM Intelligence Corps) shows that Pakatan Rakyat (PR) is capable of winning 117 Parliamentary seats this forming a new government with an easy majority of 12 seats after the 13th General Election (GE-13).
Meanwhile in the survey which was extended by the ATM Intelligence Corps shows that BN will only be able to win 105 seats.
The study which is used by BN also shows that PR, apart from successfully defending Selangor, Penang, Kedah and Kelantan, will also win back Perak and capture Negeri Sembilan and Terengganu.
This was according to the PAS Secretary General Datuk Mustafa Ali in a ceramah (talk) programme at Section 7 here last night.
“For Johor, although we can win many constituency and Parliamentary seats, according to the survey, it (PR) may not be able to conquer the state, what I say is true.
“For Malacca, we can add Parliamentary and state seats, but still be unable to capture the state.
“For Pahang, we can add seats but we can yet capture it, which means that we have seven states and for Perlis, it is 50/50,” said Mustafa.
According to Mustafa, the survey results are based on the current situation of the 13th General Election was held on Tuesday.
However, added Mustafa, he was also informed that the survey results can change in just a few days prior to the polling day on Sunday.
“Whether it decreases or rises, the trend at this time shows that we are on the rise, which means that we are not likely to receive less than 117 seats.
“This is what is alarming (Prime Minsiter) Najib, alarming (Deputy Prime Minister) Muhyiddin and the most anxious is (former Prime Minister) Dr Mahathir himself,” he added.
Mustafa explained in his talk that the study released by the ATM Intelligence Corps is the most trusted by BN compared to two other government agencies, Kemas and the Royal Malaysian Police Special Branch.
To win at the federal level thus occupying Putrajaya, PR needs to win at least 112 from the total 222 parliamentary seats contested.
For the first time, in the GE-12 in 2008, BN was denied a two-thirds majority in Parliament when they only won with a majority of 140 seats.
Meanwhile, Pakatan won with 8 seats.
