State polls: Muda aims to contest, already gearing up, says Amira

JOHOR BARU: Muda will be contesting in the six upcoming state elections as the party is already in preparation mode, says its deputy president.

Amira Aisya Abd Aziz said the party was finalising the seats where it intends to contest.

“We are getting feedback from our respective state leaderships as well as our members before finalising how many seats we will go for," she told reporters after presenting 16 temporary tents to traders at PPR Desa Mutiara here on Friday (June 2).

The Puteri Wangsa assemblyman said, however, the party had yet to discuss the seats with Pakatan Harapan and Barisan Nasional.

“Honestly speaking, we have not held any discussions with them. As part of the unity government, Muda is hopeful that we can move in the same direction,” she said.

Amira Aisya also said the party would be banking on its experience gained during the Johor state election and the 15th General Election (GE15) for the upcoming state polls.

“We are looking at strengthening the party by studying the data collected in those elections.

“This will allow us to make improvements so that Muda can be better prepared for this year's six state elections,” she added.

Muda made its debut in the Johor state election held in March last year, contesting seven seats and winning one.

It also contested six parliamentary seats in GE15 last November but only party president Syed Saddiq Syed Abdul Rahman was successful, defending Muar which he won in 2018 on a Bersatu ticket.
