PAKATAN Harapan has offered former Terengganu menteri besar Ahmad Said a ticket to contest in the 14th general election, Free Malaysia Today reported.
Terengganu Pakatan chairman Raja Kamarul Bahrin Shah Raja Ahmad said the opposition coalition would accept his decision to fight alongside them to topple the Barisan Nasional goverment.
“We can’t make any big or extraordinary offer, so it’s up to the individual whether to accept it or not,” said Raja Bahrin.
Pakatan will likely also contest against PAS in Terengganu in GE14, a state in which PAS president Abdul Hadi Awang holds steady sway.
“We will contest all 32 state and eight parliamentary seats in Terengganu,” Raja Bahrin, who is also Kuala Terengganu MP, told the online news portal, adding Pakatan was prepared for three-cornered fights in the state.
“We have already agreed on the distribution of more than 50% of the seats among Pakatan members.
“We are focusing on the urban seats, such as Kuala Terengganu, Dungun (PAS-Wan Hassan Mohd Ramli), Kemaman (BN-Ahmad Shaberi Cheek) and Kuala Nerus (PAS-Mohd Khairuddin Aman Razali), where the voters are very well-informed.
“We are confident of springing a surprise in Terengganu. We can win at least 16 seats.”
Ahmad had been menteri besar until 2014, and was replaced by Umno’s Ahmad Razif Abdul Rahman.
