KUALA LUMPUR – The Malaysian United Democratic Alliance (Muda) may be contesting against PKR in the Johor state election if seat negotiations between the two parties fail, says Syed Saddiq Syed Abdul Rahman (pic).
The Muda president said the party has conveyed its intention of avoiding any seat clashes with PKR to DAP and Parti Amanah Negara, adding that Muda was prepared to continue negotiations with PKR.
The Muar MP said a series of official talks were conducted between Muda and the PKR leadership but the latter had decided to announce a list of PKR candidates in 20 Johor state seats, which ended the formal negotiations between the two parties.
“Muda has given continuous effort and commitment to avoid any seat clashes with the opposition parties as Muda’s main focus is to bring about positive changes in Johor.
“Through formal negotiations with DAP and Amanah, Muda has managed to avoid any seat clashes,” he said.
Syed Saddiq, however, added that should there be no developments and changes in the decision from the PKR leadership regarding the Muda-PKR seat allocation, the Muda leadership will hold a special meeting by this weekend to discuss the way forward.
“If the clash of seats between Muda and PKR cannot be avoided, Muda will leave the decision to the people of Johor,” he said.
