State-level PKR, Umno having informal discussions on state polls, says Rafizi

KUALA TERENGGANU: Informal discussions on state elections have been held between PKR and Umno at the state level including Terengganu, says Rafizi Ramli.

However, the PKR deputy president said the discussions were mainly a familiarisation process between the leadership of the two parties and did not involve any decisions or principles regarding the state elections.

"(Discussions on the state elections) are not yet official. The current discussions are unofficial, which is at the state level.

"In Terengganu, Nik Nazmi (Kelantan and Terengganu leadership council chairman Nik Nazmi Nik Ahmad) has already met with Ahmad Said (Terengganu Umno liaison committee chairman Datuk Seri Ahmad Said)," he said.

The Economy Minister said this to reporters after officiating at the Terenggau PKR Election Convention at the Islamic Civilisation Park here Saturday (Jan 21).

He said the decision on state elections, including seat distribution and the use of logos, will be formally discussed by the leaders of both parties at the central level. - Bernama
