P014 N25 Bukit Selambau - Large DUN with 22 Voting Stations and 64 Streams

Although only a state seat, Bukit Selambau has 35,140 voters, and is larger than 60 parliamentary seats. Voters will vote at 22 voting stations (TMs) and 64 voting streams (saluran). The largest 2 voting stations will be crowded with 5,122 and 4,179 voters respectively.

According to the electoral roll used in GE12, Bukit Selambau was the 22th largest DUN out of 576 DUNs (excluding the pitiful KL and other FTs which were taxed without state representation). In contrast, P203 N 29 Batang Air, another state assembly seat undergoing by-election also on April 7, was the 543th largest out of 572 state seats in Malaysia.

As of GE12, Bukit Selambau DUN was larger than 60 out of 222 parliamentary seats, and was larger than the parliamentary seats of Sandakan (~33k voters), Langkawi (~30k), Gua Musang (~29k), Kuala Kangsar (~28k), Labuan (~21k), and Putrajaya (<7k).

Bukit Selambau should have been represented by its own MP in the parliament, instead of remaining just a DUN!
