PASIR GUDANG: Johor Barisan Nasional wants to wrest five out of six parliamentary seats from the Opposition in the next general election, said its chairman Datuk Seri Khaled Nordin.
He said Barisan component parties need to put in a more concerted effort and work harder to win back the seats from the Opposition.
The six seats under the Opposition are Gelang Patah, Kulai, Kluang, Bakri, Batu Pahat and Pagoh.
Khaled, who is Johor Mentri Besar, was asked to comment on a statement by Opposition leaders that Pakatan Harapan wants to create a political tsunami in the state by winning 15 parliamentary seats in the election.
"You ask the Opposition leaders, what are the seats that they are going to win?" he told reporters after launching Karnival Jualan Mega Muafakat Johor 2017 at Pasir Gudang Stadium here on Friday.
Pakatan leaders had told reporters after a meeting in Johor Baru on Thursday that the coalition was confident of winning 15 parliamentary seats in the state.
