Umno yet to decide on electoral pact for Melaka polls, says Tok Mat

SEREMBAN (Bernama): Umno has yet to decide whether to go solo or form a pact with other parties when contesting the Melaka state election on Nov 20, says Datuk Seri Mohamad Hasan.

"That decision will be made at the (Umno) Supreme Council meeting. We will discuss the matter in detail, the recommendations of the political bureau and other views as well. We will weigh what is good for us (as) we take part in elections to win... it is not a carnival.

"So the (Supreme Council) meeting will decide on this and the party president will issue a statement. So far, no decision yet,” he told reporters after officiating at the annual general meetings of Umno branches in the Rembau division here Wednesday (Oct 20).

Mohamad said Umno has a fair idea on the seats it wants to contest but this could change if it enters into an electoral pact with other parties. - Bernama
