Johor Pakatan will continue to work with BN even if there is a reshuffle, says state DAP chief


KLUANG: Johor Pakatan Harapan will still be working closely with Barisan Nasional in future elections regardless of whether there is a reshuffle in the state government, says Liew Chin Tong.

The Johor DAP chief said that the relationship between the two coalitions have been getting better after the Simpang Jeram and Pulai polls.

"Come the next state and general elections, Pakatan and Barisan must face it together. That is the parameter.

"Whether or not there is a reshuffle of the state government, depends on the political situation, discussion and understanding between both coalitions.

"It is not an easy thing (reshuffle of state government) and we understand that. We will not make any decision in a rush," he said.

He said this when asked if there was a need for a reshuffle of the state government as Barisan and Pakatan were now in the same unity government at the Federal level.

Liew said this to reporters when met after the Johor DAP convention here.

Earlier, DAP secretary-general Anthony Loke said he would leave it to the party's state leadership to discuss the matter.

"Personally, I am open to any suggestion, including the establishment of a unity government (in Johor) but it needs to be discussed first.

"I have given Liew the mandate to discuss the matter with Johor Pakatan and later with Barisan as well," he said in a press conference at the same event.
