JOHOR BAHRU, Mac 13 Mac – Barisan Nasional emerged victor in the Johor state election by winning 40 out of 56 State Assembly seats in the March 12 polling.
Its chairman Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi attributed it specially to the Johorians for picking the coalition which lost the state in the 14th general election in May 2018.

“It is a thumping victory for us, it’s also beyond expectation. I would also like to thank all of you for the victory.
“My sincere gratitude to His Royal Highness the Sultan of Johor for consenting the dissolution of the State Assembly which paved the way for this election,” he said at the party Command Center here, last night.
