SHAH ALAM— Pakatan Harapan has completed almost 90 per cent of seat negotiations for the 14th general election, Parti Amanah Negara leader Khalid Samad claimed today.
The Shah Alam MP said the distribution should be ready for announcement in January.
“Currently we stand about 90 per cent. All parliamentary have been settled, now only state. Decision on parliamentary seats will guide the state seats,” Khalid said during a press conference at his office today.
He also suggested he may defend his Shah Alam seat, despite previously offering to yield to Amanah president Mohammad Sabu, who may be fielded elsewhere.
“Few seats geared up for him but yet to finalise. It wouldn’t be a problem for him to contest in any of the seats,” he said.
The PH parties must re-negotiate their claims to seats as this will be the first election they will face as the new coalition replacing Pakatan Rakyat, which DAP has previously declared dead.
Former ally PAS has since gone on to form its own bloc, and is expected to clash with many of its former partners.
