AMPANG: Pakatan Harapan has reached an 83% consensus for the distribution of seats currently held by coalition parties in Selangor in the upcoming state election, says Mentri Besar Datuk Amirudin Shari (pic).

The state Pakatan chairman said parties that won seats during the 14th General Election would contest them again in the state polls.

"This means Hulu Kelang will remain with Amanah and Kota Kemuning with DAP, even if (Kota Kemuning assemblyman) Ganabatirau won’t be contesting there," he said on Wednesday (May 31).

Amirudin said this in response to V. Ganabatirau's recent statement about not defending his Kota Kemuning seat in the upcoming state election.

Ganabatirau has expressed his desire to focus on his Klang Parliamentary seat, which he won in the 15th General Election.

Amirudin said the seats will feature a mix of some old and new candidates, adding that this still needs to be approved by the party's presidential council or unity committee.

"Rest assured that by the time the state assembly is dissolved, we would have resolved the distribution of seats.

"Even if there are changes, it will not be significant," he said, adding that the matter will be resolved in June before the dissolution.

Earlier Amirudin alongside Domestic Trade and Cost of Living Minister Datuk Seri Salahuddin Ayub launched the first Jualan Mega Ehsan Rahmah programme (JER) for the state, here at the Ampang Jaya Municipal Council AU2 multipurpose hall on Wednesday.

The six states which will be conducting their state polls are Selangor, Penang, Negri Sembilan, Kedah, Kelantan and Terengganu.
