PETALING JAYA: Perikatan Nasional (PN) is ready to face the upcoming Johor state election which will be held following the dissolution of the state assembly, says chairman Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin.

In a statement Monday (Jan 24), Muhyiddin said that although Perikatan was part of the ruling government, the dissolution of the state assembly was done without prior consultation with them.

“As part of preparations, PN will negotiate with its component parties to finalise the allocation of contested seats while also paying attention to its election machinery.

“If we are given the mandate by the people of Johor, PN will form a government which embodies integrity, care for the people while also giving our full attention to giving excellent service to ensure the prosperity and happiness of the people of Johor,” he said.

Additionally, Muhyiddin called for eligible voters to exercise their rights in the upcoming polls while adhering to the standard operating procedures (SOPs) set by the Election Commission.

“I hope the set SOP exhibits a balance between preventing the spread of Covid-19 while also allowing political parties to campaign in a free, fair and safe manner.

“I also welcome all new voters including those above the age of 18 to practice their democratic rights as first-time voters in the state election,” he said.
