SHAH ALAM: Perikatan Nasional will contest all 28 seats in the upcoming Melaka State Election, which entails that there will be multi-pronged fights across the board.

"Perikatan component parties that will participate in the Melaka State Election are Bersatu, PAS and Gerakan. In a Perikatan supreme council meeting on Friday (Nov 5), an agreement was reached on the distribution of seats and the list of candidates," coalition chairman Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin announced at an event in Glenmarie Hotel & Golf Resort here on Saturday (Nov 6).

Earlier on Saturday, the other two major political coalitions, Barisan Nasional and Pakatan Harapan, also announced that they would field candidates in all 28 state constituencies in Melaka.
