KOTA BARU: Perikatan Nasional will discuss the recommendations of the various parties on the six states holding the state elections simultaneously, says PAS deputy president Datuk Seri Tuan Ibrahim Tuan Man.
He said the matter would be brought to the Perikatan supreme council to be discussed in greater detail.
"Personally, I have no problem if the state polls are held simultaneously in Kelantan, Terengganu, Kedah, Negri Sembilan, Selangor and Penang.
"It will be discussed in the Perikatan supreme council meeting and all decisions will be announced later," he told reporters after the launch of the Kelantanku Bersih programme here today (Dec 8).
Election Commission chairman Tan Sri Abdul Ghani Salleh was reportedly said to have welcomed the proposal to hold the upcoming six states elections in the peninsula simultaneously as this would facilitate EC affairs.
However, Abdul Ghani said only the leaders of the states involved could decide on the dissolution of their respective state assemblies. - Bernama
