PETALING JAYA: Political parties in the government will come up with a strategy to avoid a clash of candidates during the coming Melaka state polls, says Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob. A meeting between the leaders of the parties would be held to discuss the plan, he said.
“I have been given the mandate to hold a meeting among the party leaders to discuss avoiding clashes between our candidates in the state election.
“The clash of candidates will not be good for us and will benefit the other side, which we do not want to happen,” said the Umno vice-president during a press conference yesterday.
Nomination for the Melaka state polls will take place on Nov 8 with polling day set for Nov 20.
