KULAI: Johor Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (Bersatu) will call for a meeting soon with the main agenda being the much-talked-about possible snap state polls.
Kulai Bersatu chief Tosrin Jarvanthi confirmed the matter and said party president Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin, who is Gambir assemblyman and Pagoh MP, would be chairing the meeting.
"The meeting is expected to be held within the next few days but the exact date has yet to be confirmed,” he said.
He added that it would be held at Johor Bersatu headquarters located at Danga Bay in Johor Baru.
Tosrin, who is also state Islamic Religious Affairs Committee chairman, said this after presenting aid to needy children under Yayasan Sejahtera Kulai's back-to-school programme held at Dewan Raya Putra here on Tuesday (Jan 18).
On Monday (Jan 17), the guessing game over snap polls in the state continued with Johor Mentri Besar Datuk Hasni Mohammad still refusing to be drawn into naming a date while stressing that the idea could not be rejected at this juncture.
He said that with the razor-thin one-seat majority, the state government needed to be extra careful and sensitive to ensure that all its programmes could be carried out smoothly for the people.
Hasni was reticent when asked if the state election would happen soon after Chinese New Year next month.
"What is important is why the state election needs to be held and not when it should be held,” he told reporters while attending an event in Johor Baru.
Talk of an impending state election gained traction after the death of Kempas assemblyman Datuk Osman Sapian of Bersatu recently, leaving the current Umno-led government with a one-seat majority at the 56-seat Johor assembly.
