KUALA LUMPUR, Oct 6 — Perikatan Nasional (PN) is holding an unexpected meeting this afternoon at its headquarters here, although the reason is not immediately clear.

The coalition chairman Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin, who is also Bersatu president, was seen arriving just before 3pm.

Other leaders expected to attend are PAS deputy president Datuk Seri Tuan Ibrahim Tuan Man and the Islamist party’s secretary-general Datuk Seri Takiyuddin Hassan.

Leaving the compound around 6:30pm, Tuan Ibrahim told reporters that the meeting was a normal routine to discuss preparations for the 15th general election (GE15).

“It's a regular monthly meeting. We discussed election preparations, manifestos, seat allocation committees ... and for each to make an initial report. Anyway, we will have a follow up discussion after this,” he said.

Apart from that, he also said that there’s still no news from Istana Negara regarding the dissolution of Parliament.

National news agency Bernama reported Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob saying he may propose a dissolution date for Parliament to the Yang di-Pertuan Agong during their regular meeting today.
