Previously, National Front (BN); together with Pan-Malaysian Islamic Party (PAS), remains the majority in the Dewan Negara despite the Alliance of Hope (PH); together with Sabah Heritage Party (WARISAN) and United Pasokmomogun Kadazandusun Murut Organisation (UPKO) becomes the new governing party in the Dewan Rakyat, which is in the new current present Parliament. This is due to the constitutional nature that senators are not elected directly by the people, but instead elected by the State Legislative Assembly or appointed by the Yang di-Pertuan Agong, which most of senatorial elections or appointments took place in the previous parliamentary term, i.e. the 13th Parliament.
