Barisan to use own logo in coming state elections, says Zahid

PUTRAJAYA: Barisan Nasional will use its own logo to contest in the upcoming state elections, says Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi.

The Barisan chairman said this had been determined by the coalition and its component members.

“The use of the Barisan logo in the elections will remain,” he told reporters after visiting the Orang Asli Development Department on Thursday (Feb 23).

On seat allocations, Ahmad Zahid said that discussions had already started among parties within the unity government.

“There will be cooperation among all parties and discussions are ongoing,” he added.

A committee to look into issues involving state elections had been set up by the unity government, following its first meeting early this month.

On Wednesday (Feb 22), Selangor Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Amirudin Shari said that the six states where polls are due this year have reached an understanding to dissolve their respective state assemblies in the last two weeks of June.

He said this understanding would be discussed by the respective parties before being presented to the Rulers and governors of the states.

The six states - Selangor, Negri Sembilan, Penang, Kedah, Kelantan and Terengganu - did not dissolve their respective state assemblies during the 15th General Election last year.
