KOTA BARU: Perikatan Nasional will adopt the formula used in the 15th General Election to decide on seat allocations among component parties for the six state elections this year, says PAS vice-president Datuk Mohd Amar Nik Abdullah.
He said PAS would defend its seats, while Bersatu candidates would contest in areas won by Umno previously.
"This is the basis of our seat negotiations, just like in the last general election,” he told reporters after an event here today (June 1).
However, Mohd Amar said there might be changes in the final stage for certain areas in Kelantan.
Mohd Amar, who is Kelantan Deputy Mentri Besar, said the list of prospective candidates in the state had been submitted to Mentri Besar Datuk Ahmad Yakob, who is also Kelantan PAS commissioner.
Selangor, Penang, Negri Sembilan, Kedah, Kelantan and Terengganu are due to hold their state elections this year. - Bernama
