PETALING JAYA: Pakatan Harapan leaders have called on their party members to stop looking for scapegoats as a result of three straight by-election losses, but instead close ranks and prepare the coalition for bigger battles ahead. Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia central committee member Tariq Ismail said that Pakatan parties had only themselves to blame for the losses and it was time to reassess. Kulasegaran was said to have played the race card when he allegedly commented that Indians should vote for an Indian in the Rantau by-election. On the post-mortem of the Rantau by-election, Anwar said he was still waiting for the report from the state chapter. On April 13, Barisan Nasional candidate Datuk Seri Mohamad Hasan won the Rantau by-election with 10,397 votes.
