PAS against holding GE15 this year
PAS vice-president Idris Ahmad says the year-end floods will make it difficult to manage an election.
(MalaysiaNow) – PAS vice-president Idris Ahmad says the party’s representatives in the government will suggest that the 15th general election (GE15) not be held this year.
“There is no need to hold GE15, especially when it is (nearing) flood season. We already know there will be floods and it will make it difficult to manage the election,” he told reporters in Kuala Lumpur yesterday.
Idris said PAS would not dissolve the state legislative assembly in Kedah, Kelantan and Terengganu until around March 2023, when the term ends.
Prime Minister Ismail Sabri Yaakob earlier said that matters pertaining to GE15 would be among those discussed at the Cabinet meeting this week.
