Keywords:Elections, Sarawak, Opposition, Justice, campaign
The 11th Sarawak State Election (PRN) had been the primary focus for many political parties, especially People’s Justice Party (KEADILAN). The transition of power to Adenan Satem had witnessed the increase level of confidence towards Sarawak voters where the new reform will be implemented under his leadership. Political campaigns by opposition parties touch on national issues and rarely discussing local issues. Sarawak voters are more inclined to local issues instead, especially issues which are closer to their hearts like Native Customary Rights, infrastructure, and basic amenities. This study was conducted using a structured method of interview and field study in Sarawak for a week. The opposition party also seems to have disagreement among them on some issues and in certain constituency happened three-cornered fight. KEADILAN only won three state legislative seats and experienced a downfall of popular votes. The three corned fights and the issues that have been used by them had failed to win the heart of the voters to support them.
