Barisan likely to get MB posts in three Perikatan-led states if unity coalition wins state polls, says Khalid

PETALING JAYA: Pakatan Harapan is expected to let Barisan Nasional take the mentri besar post in Kelantan, Terengganu and Kedah if the Unity Government wins in the upcoming state election, says a report.

Amanah communications director Khalid Abdul Samad was reported to have said that the candidates for the mentri besar posts will be discussed at an upcoming Pakatan meeting.

He told Malay language daily Utusan Malaysia, however, that the candidate for mentri besar or chief minister for Selangor, Negri Sembilan and Penang would still come from Pakatan.

"Barisan has to accept it does not have as many seats in these three states.

"But, we will negotiate the top posts in the other three states and it is likely that they will be given to Barisan," the daily quoted him as saying.

Elections in the six states are expected to be held in the middle of the year. Currently, Perikatan Nasional heads Kelantan, Kedah and Terengganu while Pakatan governs Selangor, Penang and Negri Sembilan.
