Malaysia’s 13th General Elections are coming soon. In anticipation of some exciting politics, I hope to produce a couple of election preview posts in the coming weeks. I’ll start off with some data from the 2008 elections, the March 8th “political tsunami.”
Here is a graph using the data that I made for this article on the 2008 Elections (ungated early version here). It shows the results of the parliamentary elections for each Peninsular electoral district, arrayed against the percent of that district classified as “Malay.” I’ve separated the results by BN party (UMNO, MCA, MIC, Gerakan, and PPP), and only included head-to-head races (only dropping a couple).
Sometimes a graphic is worth 1000 words.
