JOHOR BARU: Johor may be the next state to hold a snap election, says Pasir Gudang MP Hassan Abdul Karim, citing the state's current political situation.
He said the focus is now on former Johor mentri besar Datuk Osman Sapian and any action that might be taken against him by Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia.
"The state Perikatan Nasional currently has 29 seats while Pakatan Harapan has 27. So if they (the Bersatu disciplinary board) decides to revoke his membership, then Perikatan would be left with 28, Pakatan 27 and one independent assemblyman," he said after a dengue eradication campaign at Kampung Orang Asli Kuala Masai, Pasir Gudang on Saturday (Sept 12).
The former Johor PKR chief added that elected representatives should adhere to the message given by Sultan Ibrahim and focus on helping the people and not indulge in politicking.
"Our people are looking for us to help them, our economic recovery is slow and our border with Singapore is still closed (for daily travel) so there is much work to be done," he said.
Osman had been spotted at programmes organised by Parti Pejuang Tanah Air, which is helmed by former prime minister and Bersatu chairman Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad.
The 69-year-old Kempas assemblyman is expected to be hauled up by Bersatu's disciplinary board soon.
