KUALA LUMPUR: An upset could be on the cards for Pakatan Harapan-held Selangor in the coming state polls, says Datuk Idris Ahmad.

The PAS vice-president said things are looking optimistic for Perikatan Nasional to take Selangor especially following the response during the coalition’s Hari Raya open house on Sunday (May 21).

"We received an extraordinary response. There were so many people," said Idris.

"I reached the venue about 8.30pm and still had to walk quite a distance as there were so many people on the road," he added when speaking to The Star at the sidelines of Parliament on Monday (May 22).

He added that discussions on seat distributions were almost complete, with the same for their machinery.

"The preparation of the election machinery is about 70% now for all the states involved in the polls," he said.

He said they were also confident of retaining Kelantan, Terengganu and Kedah - currently held by PAS - for the coming state elections.

Apart from Selangor, Kelantan, Terengganu and Kedah, the Pakatan-held states of Penang and Negri Sembilan will also be holding their state polls later this year.
