KUALA LUMPUR: PAS’ representatives in the government will suggest for the 15th General Election (GE15) not to be held this year, says party vice-president Datuk Idris Ahmad.

"There is no need to hold GE15, especially when it is (nearing) the flood season, we already know there will be floods and it will make it difficult to manage the election," he told reporters here Tuesday (Sept 20).

Idris said PAS would not dissolve the state legislative assemblies in Kedah, Kelantan and Terengganu until around March 2023 when the term ends.

On Monday (Sept 19), Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob said that matters pertaining to the upcoming GE15 would be among those to be discussed at the Cabinet meeting on Wednesday (Sept 21). - Bernama
