Dis­tri­bu­tion of seats based on winnabil­ity fac­tor — Azmin

The Borneo Post (Sabah) - - HOME -

SHAH ALAM: Parti Kead­i­lan Rakyat (PKR) will con­sider giv­ing away its seats to Parti Amanah Ne­gara (Amanah) and Parti Pribumi Ber­satu Malaysia (PPBM) based on winnabil­ity fac­tor, says its deputy pres­i­dent, Datuk Seri Mo­hamed Azmin Ali.

He said when PKR first con­tested in the gen­eral elec­tion in 1999, the party had no seats and DAP and PAS were kind enough to give away some of their seats for us to con­test.

“My prin­ci­ple is clear, the 2014 gen­eral elec­tion (GE14) is the time for PKR to con­sider giv­ing some seats to our new part­ners, which are Amanah and Parti Pribumi Ber­satu Malaysia,” he told re­porters af­ter speak­ing at the New Malaysia Di­a­logue fo­rum or­gan­ised by the op­po­si­tion pact and sev­eral non-gov­ern­men­tal or­gan­i­sa­tions yes­ter­day.

Mo­hamed Azmin, who is also Se­lan­gor Men­teri Be­sar, said winnabil­ity fac­tor was an im­por­tant as­pect to be con­sid­ered in the dis­tri­bu­tion of seats in Se­lan­gor.

“Other than seats al­lo­ca­tion, we also have to con­sider the im­por­tant winnabil­ity fac­tor of a party can­di­date. If the per­son is ca­pa­ble to garner sup­port at a par­tic­u­lar place, cer­tainly we will let the per­son to con­test on Pakatan’s ticket.

“Af­ter all, we want to win as Pakatan, not in­di­vid­u­ally,” he said. - Ber­nama
