The results of the seat negotiations between Pakatan Harapan (PH) and Barisan Nasional (BN) for the six upcoming state elections are expected to be announced after Aidilfitri, or before the end of May.
PH communications director Fahmi Fadzil said top leaders of PH and BN will announce the matter when the time comes.
“I believe that the party leadership will announce the results of the seat negotiations soon, and I expect it to be very positive,” he told reporters in Kuala Lumpur today.
However, Fahmi said details of the negotiations should be referred to PH secretary-general Saifuddin Nasution Ismail or PKR vice-president Rafizi Ramli.
Prior to this, Saifuddin said the direct negotiation process concerning the seat allocation for the six states had been held between PH and BN based on the agreed parameters and formula.
On Feb 22, the menteri besar and chief ministers of the six states – Selangor, Penang, Negeri Sembilan, Kedah, Terengganu and Kelantan – agreed to consider dissolving their respective state assemblies in the last two weeks of June to make way for the state elections.
Meanwhile, on the good news for prepaid plan users that Fahmi said would be announced on Monday, the communications and digital minister said he still has to talk to several parties.
“Maybe it’s today, maybe it’s tomorrow. I have to call several people after this to ask them to make the announcement. There is some interesting news for prepaid users, insha Allah,” he said.
Last Friday, Fahmi said he would announce good news for prepaid plan users on Monday.
On Pemangkin, Fahmi announced that nine focus sectors will be included in the programme, as identified by the Malaysia Digital Economy Corporation, including digital tourism, digital agriculture and digital town, involving investments totalling RM1 billion by 2025.
