SHAH ALAM, Aug 27 — PKR deputy president Rafizi Ramli today said that Pakatan Harapan (PH) would be announcing the seats that the coalition plans to contest during the 15th general election (GE15) in a month’s time.

When delivering his speech at PKR’s Election Convention here, he said that PH would also prepare a preliminary list of candidates for those seats, in a show of strength to the public.

He said that his party had already begun extensive preparations for GE15, and when the day finally arrives, other parties would realise PH was a force to be reckoned with.

Rafizi then labelled GE15 as a coming war, adding that PKR’s grassroots support has its own role to play in its fight against Barisan Nasional and Umno.

“Let them (Umno) fight among themselves on when GE15 should be held. What’s important is that we must be ready.

“In a month’s time, we will shortlist our candidates and settle all negotiations on the party’s seats,” he said in his speech.

He also chided former party compatriot Datuk Seri Azmin Ali, reminding delegates at the convention to refrain from betraying the party’s ideals and keep their intentions pure.

“If there are those who win but do not get any government position, do not backstab us like Azmin and his friends,” he said.

The PKR Election Convention saw over 3,500 delegates from across Malaysia attending the rally.

Chants of “Reformasi”, “Hidup Anwar” and “Lawan Tetap Lawan” rang throughout the hall for most of the afternoon, lifting the spirit among PKR delegates.
