IPOH: State Pakatan Harapan has secured enough seats to form the Perak state government, said state chairman Ahmad Faizal Azumu.

He confirmed that it was made possible after two assemblymen from Barisan Nasional crossed over to Pakatan.

However, he refused to reveal the names of the two reps who shifted over.

Ahmad Faizal, who won the Tambun parliament and Chenderiang state seat, said that Perak Ruler Sultan Nazrin Muizzuddin Shah was pleased with the 31 Pakatan seats presented during a meeting earlier.

Earlier, reps from both sides of the divide arrived at Istana Kinta here at 9.45am. They were former Perak mentri besar Datuk Seri Dr Zambry Abd Kadir and the three PAS reps who won Selama, Gunong Semanggol and Kubu Gajah.

According to sources, the two reps who joined Pakatan are believed to be former state exco members Datuk Nolee ashilin Mohammed Radzi and Datuk Zainol Fadzi Paharuddin.
