Seat negotiations ‘more complicated’ now, admits Wee

PETALING JAYA: MCA president Wee Ka Siong has admitted that seat negotiations between Barisan Nasional (BN) and Pakatan Harapan (PH) for the coming six state elections were “more complicated”.

Wee said that there were a lot of factors that needed to be considered to reflect the cohesion under the current unity government, Sinar Harian reported.

“This is indeed the main challenge among party leaders. Previously, it was a case of three people sharing a pot of rice when BN was contesting (a seat),” he was quoted as saying, referring to the three main BN components.

Umno and MIC are the other two components.

TASEK GELUGOR: Winnability should be the key factor in determining the direction of the seat negotiations between Pakatan Harapan and Barisan Nasional, says BN chairman Ahmad Zahid Hamidi.

He said the ability of a candidate to win should have priority over the number of seats that will be gained by each coalition partner as they prepare for state assembly elections in the next four months.

The six states that will hold legislative elections are Kedah, Penang, Selangor, Negeri Sembilan, Kelantan and Terengganu.

“It is too early for us to give hints (on who gets the seats),” he told reporters at a breaking of fast event at Masjid Jamel al-Islah.
