PH ready to work with BN in Selangor polls, says Amirudin


Selangor PH chairman Amirudin Shari said an alliance between PH and BN in the state election would reflect the cooperation at the federal level.

SHAH ALAM: Pakatan Harapan is ready to form a political alliance with Barisan Nasional ahead of the Selangor state elections, says Amirudin Shari.

“If there is an understanding (with BN), it is definitely because we want to maintain (the relationship) we have at the federal level. Although Selangor is quite stable, we are not big-headed or greedy,” the Selangor PH chairman said after attending an event at the state legislative assembly.

“If there is room for discussion, we will discuss. As the Selangor PH chairman, I hope we can retain Selangor.”

However, Amirudin, who is also the Selangor menteri besar, said Selangor PH was also ready to contest on its own if cooperation with BN failed to materialise.

“If we have to go at it alone, we will. If we can get cooperation from others, maybe they can help us win a few more seats. We are open to discussions.”

Change in Selangor opposition leader

Amirudin also said there might be a change in the state’s opposition leader now that BN is working with PH at the federal level.

BN’s Air Tawar assemblyman Rizam Ismail is the current opposition leader in the Selangor state assembly.

However, Amirudin said any change would not matter much as there were only six months left until the current term ends.

“Instead of spending time arranging seats in the state assembly, it is better to discuss how to face the election. We should focus on that during the next six to seven months,” said Amirudin.

The current Selangor state assembly’s term ends on June 26, 2023, and the state elections must be held within 60 days. - FMT
