PAS has asked to contest in 10 seats in the upcoming Sabah election, says party secretary-general Takiyuddin Hassan.

“We want to contest in about 10 constituencies, including Tawau and Kalabakan which were traditionally contested by PAS,” he said after an event in Tawau last night.

He added that talks were ongoing on seat allocations, with details to be announced soon.

“The important thing is, Perikatan Nasional (PN) wants to avoid contests involving three or more candidates which have proven detrimental to us before,” he said.

Talks on seat distribution among PN, which comprises Sabah Bersatu, PAS, STAR Sabah and the Sabah Progressive Party, Barisan Nasional and Parti Bersatu Sabah are in the final stages.

Seventy-three seats will be up for grabs in the election, compared to 60 during the 14th general election in 2018.

The Election Commission has set Sept 12 for nominations and Sept 26 as polling day.
