Current Situation Does Not Allow Polls In Johor: PH

Pakatan Harapan (PH) Johor has said that this is not the right time to hold the state assembly elections as people are experiencing a Covid-19 health crisis and domestic economic problems. Johor’s Amanah, DAP, and PKR said in a joint statement that currently they are focusing on the welfare of the people rather than enjoying power and politics. All efforts, energy, commitment and funds should be channelled to help the people in need, the statement read.

The joint statement was signed by Johor Amanah Party chairman Aminolhuda Hassan, Johor Parti Keadilan Rakyat chairman Syed Ibrahim Syed Noh and Johor Democratic Action Party (DAP) chairman Liew Chin Tong.

“All efforts energy, commitment and funds should be channelled to help the people who are in trouble at this time, even though the position of the state assembly is at 28 seats in favour of the government and 27 seats for Pakatan following the passing of Kempas assemblyman Datuk Osman Sapian on Wednesday (Dec 22),” the statement read.

The current position of the State Assembly (DUN) is at 28-27 after Kempas State Assemblyman (ADUN) Osman Sapian passed away on 21 December.

Earlier, the Johor MB Hasni Mohammad had said that he would meet PM Ismail Sabri following the death of Osman.

The current government of Johor led by UMNO is left with only one seat majority after Osman died.
