“It has been settled,” he said of the discussions.
Asked about discussions on the BN candidates to be fielded in Negeri Sembilan, Mohamad said: “OK. Alhamdulillah (Praise be to God), we discussed, there was agreement and disagreement.”
On the preparations for the election and confidence of BN retaining power in Negeri Sembilan, he said: “Insya-Allah (God willing), we have to work hard.”
