KUALA LUMPUR: The Selangor Pakatan Harapan top leadership will be meeting soon to discuss seat distribution for the upcoming state election, says Izham Hashim (pic).

The Selangor Amanah chairman said he will be holding talks with his PKR and DAP counterparts, Datuk Seri Amirudin Shari and Gobind Singh Deo, respectively, before a technical committee meets on the matter.

"In principle, the aim is to outline the criteria for the distribution. We have several methods but I don't need to reveal them here because they are very detailed.

"We cannot simply just demand seats because then there will be no end to it, so there must be a fair way or criteria to handle seat distribution so that it is accepted by all the component parties,” he told reporters when met at the Jualan Jelajah Ehsan Rakyat (JER) 2.0 programme in Ampang here Saturday (Feb 4).

Izham also said that a recent Selangor PH meeting had decided that it will hold talks with Selangor Umno and Barisan Nasional on the same matter.

"We have met for unofficial talks and it looked favourable. They (Umno dan BN) have given positive feedback and we hope to resolve the seat distribution issue and so on before Ramadan so that we can focus on work on the ground,” he said. - Bernama
