is a very rural state seat located within the parliament constituency of Jasin. Our candidate, Dr Wong Fort Pin won the seat with 44.7% of the votes cast against BN MCA (36.1%) and PAS (17.7%). It was won with the 2nd lowest majority with only 1,345 votes. The seat comprises of 61.4% Malays, 22.0% Chinese and 16.1% Indians.
Bemban is one of the largest state seats in Melaka in geographical terms and is a very difficult seat to campaign given its rural nature and the seemingly impenetrable Malay villages.
The seat was very hard won in 2018 and we definitely require a lot of financial support for the campaign to ensure that we can once again win the seat in this state election.
“I would like to donate RM50 to the campaign in Bemban to help the DAP prove that we are a party for all Malaysians, regardless of race, religion or region.”
Donate to support the campaign in our marginal seats
The Melaka state election is not an election we wanted as we battle to recover from the COVID-19 pandemic crisis.
Unfortunately the ruling Perikatan Nasional government dominated by UMNO and Bersatu decided to dissolve the Melaka state assembly in order to avoid the loss of confidence and power in the state.
We are hence forced to contest this election to both defend our seats, and seek a mandate for Pakatan Harapan to win back Melaka, as we did in 2018 before being unscrupulously removed from power via the treacherous Sheraton Move in 2020.
For the DAP, we won 8 seats under Pakatan Harapan in 2018, 4 of which were marginal seats. They are Pengakalan Batu, Gadek, Duyong and Bemban. We will be contesting in the same 8 seats in this state election.
Therefore, we call upon all Malaysians to help us defend these 4 marginal seats which will contribute significantly towards helping Pakatan Harapan re-take the Melaka state government. Your support will make a big difference towards whether we are able to retain these seats, as well as to defeat the unscrupulous and incompetent UMNO and Bersatu government in Melaka.
Our success in Melaka will serve as an important stepping stone towards regaining federal power at the next general election expected at the end of next year.
