Melaka Polls: Perikatan’s election machinery is ready, can’t wait for Umno, says Azmin

MELAKA: Perikatan Nasional has readied its election machinery and can no longer afford to wait for Umno to reach a consensus on forming an alliance in the upcoming Melaka polls, says Datuk Seri Mohamed Azmin Ali.

The Perikatan election director said the discussion on working together should have been held earlier as the Nov 8 Nomination Day was near.

"It's time-sensitive and we can't wait any longer for any consensus reached between Umno and Perikatan on fostering a working relationship to vie for the 28 state seats," he said after visiting the election preparation at Masjid Tanah here on Sunday (Oct 24).

Azmin said Perikatan’s component parties are ready to face the election, including contesting in a multi-cornered battle.

Perikatan’s component parties are an alliance between Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia, PAS and Gerakan.

The Election Commission has set Nov 20 as polling day.
