Former PKR deputy president Mohamed Azmin Ali says seat negotiations will determine the candidates in the Sabah polls but his faction wants to defend seats it won in 2018. – The Malaysian insight file pic, August 2, 2020.
He said the plan will depend on negotiations with component parties in Perikatan Nasional (PN) and local parties in Sabah.

“Whether we put up a candidate or not, it depends on negotiations.

“Before this, my old party contested and won several seats. I believe we will defend those seats.

PKR won two seats – Inanam and Api-Api – in Sabah in 2018.

The Inanam and Api-Api representatives now support former chief minister Musa Aman who claimed to have the majority in the state assembly.

The Sabah assembly was dissolved last week to pave way for a state election that will be held within 60 days.

There are 73 seats up for grabs, including 13 new seats. – THE MALAYSIAN INSIGHT
