Unity and elections on Johor Barisan’s agenda

JOHOR BARU: Unity among component parties will be on the agenda at the Johor Barisan Nasional convention slated for June 8, says Datuk Seri Ahmad Maslan.

The state Barisan deputy chairman said Johor will be the first state to hold the convention, bringing together Umno, MCA and MIC, as well as Friends of BN.

“Other matters that will be touched on are youth voters, education and the economy,” he told a press conference after chairing a preparation meeting at the Johor Umno liaison committee headquarters here yesterday.

Barisan chairman Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi, who is also Umno president, is expected to attend the convention, along with some 1,000 members, starting at 1pm at the Persada Johor International Convention Centre here.

Ahmad said the event will include speeches by leaders from the main component parties and state Barisan chairman Datuk Onn Hafiz Ghazi, who is also Johor Mentri Besar.

“The convention will be the platform for the component parties to come up with a resolution to keep the 40 seats won by Barisan in the state election two years ago.

“We will also look at how to take the four seats we lost to the Opposition,” he added.

In the Johor election held in March 2022, Pakatan Harapan won 12 seats while Perikatan Nasional took three (Endau, Maharani and Bukit Kepong), and Muda won Puteri Wangsa.
