KUALA LUMPUR: Bersatu and PAS have agreed upon almost a third of the seat allocations for the 15th general election (GE15) and discussions are expected to be completed soon.
Bersatu deputy president Ahmad Faizal Azumu said the discussions involved parliamentary and state seat allocations in the peninsula and at the same time, negotiations with Perikatan Nasional (PN) component parties, especially in Sabah.
Faizal, who is representing Bersatu in the PN seat negotiations, said a number of meetings would be held until the process, now at 30%, is completed.
“I expect the negotiations will end soon and we are also recommending that all parties submit the number of seats that they wish to contest before we proceed with the discussions,” he told reporters at the closing ceremony of the Srikandi Muda Leadership Empowerment programme here, today.
Faizal said the discussions were crucial to avoid overlapping of seats among PN component parties.
“We only met once and there will be more meetings after this. We don’t want to contest against each other because we want to form a government that the people can rely on,” he said.
Recently, a meeting was held between Bersatu and PAS to discuss seat allocations for GE15.
