Johor state election: PKR 20 seats, Amanah 20 seats, and DAP 16 seats

(Malaysia Now) – Pakatan Harapan (PH) has finalised its allocation of seats for the upcoming Johor state election, Amanah president Mohamad Sabu says.

He said during the PH Presidential Council meeting on Monday, the coalition decided that Amanah and PKR would each contest 20 seats and DAP, 16.

However, he said the list of candidates was still being discussed and had yet to be finalised.

“At the same time, we are still open to negotiations with any other parties who want to cooperate with PH in the state election.

“If their participation can further increase the chances for PH to win, all three party leaders will discuss the matter,” he told reporters in Permas Jaya today.

Also present were Pasir Gudang MP Hassan Abdul Karim and Johor Amanah chairman Aminolhuda Hassan.

Mohamad said talks on cooperation with other parties such as Muda and Pejuang were ongoing, with an outcome expected in a day or two.

Meanwhile, Aminolhuda said the party’s list of candidates was ready and awaiting confirmation from the central leadership.

He said 14 out of the 20 seats allocated for Amanah would be contested by new faces, some of them young candidates.

On Presidential Council’s decision to allow PKR to contest using its own logo in the Johor state election, Mohamad said the move would not confuse voters as they were already familiar with the logos of both PKR and PH.
