PETALING JAYA: An analyst expects political parties to use the Melaka state election as a testing ground to determine winning partnerships in the next general election.

There could be new alliances based on the result of the polls, said Azizuddin Mohd Sani of Universiti Utara Malaysia.

Barisan Nasional, Perikatan Nasional, Pejuang, Warisan, Pakatan Harapan and MUDA are likely to field candidates in the impending election in the small state of 1 million.

“Warisan may try to portray itself as a national party, and it may work with Syed Saddiq Abdul Rahman’s MUDA or MUDA may work with Pejuang to test voters’ responses,” Azizuddin told FMT.
