Adenan to sworn in tonight

Barisan Nasional has won the Sarawak state election, achieving a majority, said the Election Commission.

There were 82 seats contested in this year's state polls against 71 in 2011.

Out of the seats for which counting has been completed, BN has won 72, against PKR's three and DAP's seven.

Sarawak BN chairperson Adenan Satem will be sworn-in as chief minister, following a landslide win in the state polls.

Sources of Malaysiakini said, they were sighted an invitation sent to a minister, which said the ceremony would take place at the state governor’s palace Astana in Kuching.

The 72-year-old politician’s popularity rating had been at a record high coming into the election, and the huge win was expected.

Adenan was appointed as chief minister in 2014, replacing Abdul Taib Mahmud, who is now the governor.
