JOHOR Barisan Nasional (BN) has begun discussions on the distribution of seats to contest in the upcoming 15th General Election (GE15) between its component parties, said Johor BN chairman Hasni Mohammad.

Hasni said Umno, MCA and MIC would contest in the election.

“I have started the discussions with the leaders of MCA and MIC. We understand the concept of co-operation and we agree that MCA and MIC need to contest,” he told reporters in Johor Baru today.

However, Hasni, who is also Johor Umno liaison committee chairman said, discussions had yet to finalise the constituencies and the number of seats for each component, adding that the discussions so far only involved Johor BN component parties.

Meanwhile, the Johor Menteri Besar said the ‘Bangkit 15’ programme was designed to strengthen the Johor Umno campaign infrastructure, aside from improving methods and training in facing the GE15.

“We have discussed several things such as the campaign approach, methods to adopt during the election. We want MCA and MIC to also use the same methods as practised by Johor Umno,” he added. – Bernama, April 11, 2021.
