All but three seats settled

GOMBAK: Only three of Selangor’s 56 state seats are still being negotiated with the rest finalised between parties in the unity government, says Datuk Seri Amirudin Shari.

The Selangor Mentri Besar said that talks on the remaining three seats were at the advanced stage and were expected to be completed before the end of this month.

“I believe that state-level discussions have been completed and all that is left are discussions at the advanced level,” said Amirudin, who is also Selangor Pakatan Harapan chairman.

He added that parties in the unity government wanted to ensure a straight fight in all seats.

“We are trying to combine the strength and uniqueness of all our members to give us the best path to victory for the unity government,” he told reporters after touring the booths at the Selangor National Youth Day Celebration 2023 here yesterday.

The unity government in Selangor comprises parties in the Pakatan Harapan and Barisan Nasional coalitions, which are expected to face off against Perikatan Nasional in the state polls.

However, Amirudin declined to reveal the proportion of seats allocated to Pakatan and Barisan parties.

“It is not my position to announce it as it is a key part of our unity and I do not want something that could possibly not even be final to cause any misunderstanding,” he said.

He said Pakatan and Barisan parties would begin deciding on the candidates and activating their election machineries for the 53 finalised seats soon.

Amirudin recently said the Selangor state assembly was set to dissolve automatically on June 25.

Other than Selangor, Penang, Negri Sembilan, Kedah, Kelantan and Terengganu will also be holding state elections in the middle of this year.
