PETALING JAYA: Several Barisan Nasional (BN) leaders were seen arriving at the Johor Umno building on Wednesday (Jan 26) morning to attend a meeting involving Johor’s Umno, MCA, and MIC components, Sinar Harian reported.

Among those spotted entering the building at 11am were Umno president Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi, deputy president Datuk Seri Mohamad Hasan, vice-president Datuk Seri Mohamed Khaled Nordin and secretary general Datuk Seri Ahmad Maslan.

Also seen were Umno Johor chairman Datuk Hasni Mohammad, deputy chief Datuk Nur Jazlan Mohamed, Johor MCA secretary Ng Keng Heng and MIC Youth chief K. Raven.

Media personnel from various agencies were also seen gathering at the location from as early as 9am.

It is understood that the meeting was to discuss the allocation of seats contested by Barisan component parties for the upcoming Johor state elections.

On Monday (Jan 24), Umno reported that it wanted to contest in at least 42 of the 46 seats within the Johor state assembly.

Mohamad reportedly said that the figure did not include the number of seats for Barisan component parties.

A source also said that Umno Johor would stick with its initial decision to contest in 40 seats for the upcoming polls.
