SEREMBAN: Gerakan hopes to contest one parliamentary and seven state seats in Negeri Sembilan in the 15th general election.
Gerakan president Dominic Lau said these seats are the Rasah parliamentary constituency and state seats of Temiang, Bahau, Bukit Kepayang, Rahang, Seremban Jaya, Lukut and Repah.
“We know there are many seats where we can contest in, especially Chinese-majority areas, but we want to focus on constituencies where there is potential to win.
“Leaders must go to their areas and win the people’s support by making early preparations.
“The performance of the prospective candidates will be monitored by the state Gerakan before the list is sent to the central level for a final decision,” he told reporters after opening a state party convention here today.
Negeri Sembilan Gerakan chief Choong Vee Hing said Perikatan Nasional had agreed on a 4-3-1 formula for allocation of parliamentary seats in Negeri Sembilan.
“Based on preliminary discussions on parliamentary seat distribution, it is four for Bersatu, three for PAS and one for Gerakan, but the actual constituencies for parties have yet to be finalised,” he said.
