Amanah to hold talks with Barisan on state polls, says Khalid

KOTA BARU: The top leadership of Amanah has given the green light for discussions to be held with Barisan Nasional about matters related to the six state elections.

Amanah communications director Khalid Samad said seat distribution and candidates are among the matters to be discussed, adding that these are yet to be finalised.

"We will get to know each other and look at seats that we can agree to be contested by either PH (Pakatan Harapan) or is in progress,” he told a press conference today (Feb 2).

Meanwhile, Khalid said he had been appointed as Kelantan Amanah ad hoc chairman for six months in preparation for the state polls, effective January.

During this period, he will work with the current chairman Muhammad Husain to strengthen the party.

"The existing chairman has not been sacked, and I am only taking over his duties. The party’s constitution also allows for a six-month stand-in to revive, strengthen (the party) and assist the current chairman,” he said. - Bernama
