Johor Pakatan prepares for snap polls

Written by TheMole

JOHOR BARU, July 6 2020: Johor Pakatan Harapan (PH) is preparing its machinery for a possible snap general election.

In its statement today, the opposition coalition said it will also restructure its state’s leadership as Pribumi Bersatu has left the pact.

“The current Perikatan Nasional (PN) government’s unstable scenario may pave the way for the 15th general election to take place.

“Thus, the machinery for both the state and parliamentary constituencies will be created to focus on possible electoral polls at any time,” read the statement that was signed by Aminolhuda Hassan, Syed Ibrahim Syed Noh and Liew Chin Tong, who are the state leaders of Amanah, PKR and DAP respectively.

The statement was issued shortly after the Johor PH leadership council meeting here last night.

It also announced the creation of a “shadow Cabinet” to serve as check-and-balance to the Johor PN government.

PN currently holds a simple majority of 29 seats in the Johor state assemby, while PH has 27 seats.
