KUALA LUMPUR: Perikatan Nasional will maintain the PAS logo for Kelantan and Terengganu in the upcoming state elections.
Perikatan chairman Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin said the remaining four states namely Selangor, Negri Sembilan, Penang and Kedah will use the coalition’s logo during the state elections.
“As of today, we will remain. Kelantan and Terengganu will continue to use PAS logo unless the PAS leadership change their minds and want to use Perikatan’s logo instead,” he said in jest during a press conference on Thursday (June 22).
During the 15th General Election, Perikatan candidates contested under PAS’ “moon” logo in Kelantan and Terengganu.
Earlier, Muhyiddin announced the seat distribution of 245 state seats for the coalition in the six states.
He said the coalition had agreed to allocate 83 seats for Bersatu, Pas 126 seats and 36 for Gerakan.
Muhyiddin said the coalition will continue to prepare its machineries for the state elections despite facing financial constraints.
He said this when asked how would the coalition prepare for the state elections after Bersatu’s accounts were frozen by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) in January.
“When the election comes all parties require certain amount of resources to ensure the machineries run smoothly.
“We have taken into consideration the fact that our Bersatu accounts have been frozen but most party leaders understand the situation and are willing to work hard and undertake the responsibility and cost to minimise the burden the party has.
“Of course at the same time, when we contest, we contest under PN. PAS, Bersatu and Gerakan will put our efforts together and whatever resources we have, we will share to make sure we win elections,” he said.
