Umno-PAS seat distribution ironed out

PUCHONG: Umno and PAS have ironed out the seat distribution for the next general election with Umno gunning for Bersatu seats and PAS, Amanah seats.

Seat distribution will be among the formula outlined in the Umno-PAS cooperation charter that is due to be signed on 14 Sept.

“However, Umno and PAS will also evaluate their traditional seats. If it is a traditional PAS seat but Umno is stronger there, then Umno will contest, and vice-versa,” Malaysiakini quoted a source.

A total of 21 seats won by Pakatan Harapan in the 14th general election would be at stakes once both Umno and PAS ink the deal.

The seats had a larger Umno-PAS combined votes compared to the majority won by Pakatan components such as Jerlun which is held by Kedah Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Mukhriz Mahathir and Perak Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Ahmad Faizal Azumu who is also Tambun MP.
