Sultan Ibrahim then invited all 56 state seat members for a meeting and asked them individually if they would support a PH state government or the new coalition. The meeting was held at the Sultan Ibrahim building in Johor Bahru on Wednesday, from 3pm to 5pm. According to the statement, 28 members chose the new coalition while 26 members chose PH to remain as the state government. Advertisement Advertisement Two members did not attend the meeting. "As such, the new coalition has the right to nominate a chief minister, and new state executive council," the statement said. Earlier on Tuesday, BN's Mr Hasni said that the new alliance was preparing a statutory declaration with the state assemblymen to take over the Johor state government. He claimed that BN had enough numbers, as the new government would include defectors from Bersatu as well as five members from Parti Amanah Negara and Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR). In the 56-member Johor state government, BN holds 16 state seats and PAS one seat. The Democratic Action Party has 14 seats, Amanah nine and PKR five. Bersatu, meanwhile, has 11 seats.
