KUALA LUMPUR, June 10, 2012: The seat allocation for Barisan Nasional candidates in the general elections is not set in stone, said deputy coalition chairman Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin on Sunday.

The seat sharing formula may very well change to accommodate “winnable candidates”, said the deputy prime minister.

“Now, PPP and MIC have no seats currently in Federal Territories. So in our formula of seat allocations, we will look back and see if a particular candidate is popular to be voters.

“Even if one seat is held a by a certain party, but a candidate from another party has a very high chance of winning it, we will give priority to the winnable candidate,” he said when launching the PPP Federal Territories convention here in Putra World Trade Center. – TSO
