Prose/MoS[edit]

  • {{Infobox election}} should be included.
  • 'Nomination of candidates' section: after being mentioned once, Wong Ho Leng should be referred to by his surname, not his given name.
    • If I can pop in on this one - I think "Wong" is the correct reference. Being a Chinese name, Wong is his family name. That's how he is referred to in Malaysian media, see [1] and [2] --Mkativerata (talk) 13:55, 13 June 2010 (UTC)
    • Oh, right. In that case then, in the first sentence in the penultimate paragraph of the 'Aftermath' section, he is mentioned as 'Ho Leng'. If 'Wong' is how he should be referred to as, then this sentence needs rectifying. Adabow (talk) 05:20, 14 June 2010 (UTC)
  • 'Election campaign issues' section: there is a bit of jargon that is unexplained, namely 'Sarawak OCCI SAC II Huzir Mohamed' – who is this person, is there a WP article about them (if so, provide a wikilink), what do the acronyms mean? Also explain 'RM18mil'. Reading on, I have realised that this is a currency, but it should be provided with a link the first time it is used, and 'million' should be spelt out in full, ie RM18 million. This should be kept consistent throughout the article (but only linking the first times it is used).
  • 'Results' section: The results table should be in descending numerical order, ie winner up the top
  • 'See also' section: Underscores should be replaced by spaces, and the links should be piped and reworded to avoid the '#' displaying. I note that both links are for the same article; are they both necessary?

References[edit]

  • Citation 1 is dead, all others are live.

Broad/focussed[edit]

  • Pretty broad, without going into minuscule details

Neutral[edit]

  • Viewpoints represented equally and fairly

Stable[edit]

  • No vandalism or unsettled disussions

Images[edit]

  • Sibuby-election.jpg is missing a description, I have notified the uploader on their talk page.
