Selangor Pakatan Harapan (PH) is looking to win 51 out of the 56 legislative assembly seats in the state polls expected to be held in August.
Selangor PH election director Mohd Yahya Mat Sahri said this confidence was based on the track record of the state government's administration in developing Selangor.
"We are confident that voters can see the performance of the administration in Selangor, which reaches out to the people with various initiatives that help them, such as the Darul Ehsan Water Scheme, Free Insurance Coverage and Takaful Scheme, Selangor Prosperous Life Support and Senior Age Friendly Scheme.
"In addition, the cooperation between PH and Barisan Nasional (BN) is able to further strengthen the people’s confidence in the unity government as well as draw more votes," he told reporters in Putrajaya yesterday.
Yahya also said that several seats were still at the negotiation stage, including Gombak Setia and Kota Damansara.
"We expect the seat discussions to be completed soon. It is already at the negotiation stage between the party presidents because, at our level, the party negotiation committee, it’s settled," he said.
The 14th Selangor state assembly was dissolved on June 23. Selangor will be administered by a temporary government until a new government is formed after the state polls.
Selangor is one of six states to hold its elections this year. The others are Kedah, Terengganu, Kelantan, Negeri Sembilan and Penang.
At the 14th general election (GE14), PH dominated by winning 51 out of 56 seats, followed by BN and PAS with four seats and one respectively.
The composition of the state assembly before the dissolution saw PH holding 40 seats (PKR-19, DAP-15, Amanah-six), BN five, Bersatu four, and Parti Bangsa Malaysia two, while PAS, Pejuang, and Warisan had one each, alongside one independent representative.
The seat in Batang Kali was declared vacant after the elected representative failed to attend the assembly sitting for over six months.
