Johor exco meeting did not discuss state election, says state exco member

ISKANDAR PUTERI: The weekly meeting of the state executive council on Wedneday (Jan 19) did not discuss anything related to the Johor state election, said state Islamic Religious Affairs Committee chairman Tosrin Jarvanthi (pic).

"Nothing out of the ordinary and today's meeting went as usual. We discussed on government papers, nothing else.

"There is no discussion (on the Johor election)," he told reporters when met after the meeting in Kota Iskandar here.

Meanwhile, Tosrin, who was Kulai Bersatu chief, said the division had yet to get a date on the party's meeting at the state level.

The BN-led Johor government’s majority in the state assembly had been reduced to only one seat following the death of Kempas assemblyman Datuk Osman Sapian last month.

The ruling coalition had 28 seats, with BN having 16, Bersatu 11 and PAS one, while Pakatan Harapan had 27 seats in the 56-seat state assembly.

On Tuesday (Jan 18), the opposition bloc in Johor said it was against any move to call for a state election now and offered a ‘commitment of stability’ to the state government. - Bernama
