PAS deputy president Tuan Ibrahim Tuan Man has held discussions with state Barisan Nasional (BN) chairman Wan Rosdy Wan Ismail on the formation of the Pahang government.
The matter was confirmed by Pahang Perikatan Nasional (PN) chairman Saifuddin Abdullah in a statement uploaded on his Facebook page today.
"There will be further talks today," he said.
Saifuddin yesterday said that the PN Supreme Council had appointed Tuan Ibrahim to lead negotiations on the formation of the Pahang government.
The Pahang state assembly was left hung after the results of the general election showed that no single party had secured a simple majority to form the state government.
In the polls on Nov 19, PN won 17 state seats, BN won 16 while Pakatan Harapan (PH) secured eight.
There are 42 state constituencies in Pahang, although voting for the Tioman seat was postponed to Dec 7 after PN candidate Md Yunus Ramli, 61, died of a suspected heart attack early on polling day.
Wan Rosdy, who is also the menteri besar, has yet to issue a statement on the matter.
However, Pahang DAP chairman Leong Ngah Ngah said Pahang PH was willing to cooperate with BN to form the state government, adding however that it would wait for an official decision from the PH central leadership.
