GE15: Sabah Pakatan component parties in deadlock over certain seats

KOTA KINABALU: Sabah Pakatan Harapan parties have agreed on a broad framework of seat sharing but admitted that talks were in a deadlock on certain seats.

However, all leaders were tight-lipped on details of the negotiations, only saying that they were still in talks.

Upko president Datuk Ewon Benedick said they were hoping to get a consensus on the seat sharing formula by the end of the week.

"All Pakatan component parties are involved in this negotiation. There are still some disputed seat arrangements but we are working things out," he told The Star.

Sabah DAP chairman Datuk Frankie Poon said details to the outcome of the negotiations would only be given once things had been finalised.

Asked which or how many of the seats were being disputed, he just said they would advise in due course.

"Just be patient," he added.

Parti Amanah Negara chairman for Sabah, Lahirul Latigu said a meeting was scheduled for the finalisation of seats and other matters on Thursday (Oct 13) evening.
