Expecting Gerakan to lose all their deposits

Below are the Gerakan-PN candidates in today’s Malacca election. I predict they’re all going to lose their deposits.

  1. Dhanesh in Asahan (35% non-Malay voters)
  2. Michael Gan in Ayer Keroh (51% Chinese voters)
  3. Clarice Chan in Bandar Hilir (77% Chinese voters)
  4. Karen Fong in Kota Laksamana (79% Chinese voters)
  5. Patrick Ng in Kesidang (57% Chinese voters)

“Kota Laksamana, Bandar Hilir, Kesidang and Ayer Keroh, where Chinese make up between 50% and 79% of the electorate will go to DAP even if the candidate is a banana tree.” — Joceline Tan in The Star on 16 Nov 2021
