Pakatan Harapan can beat BN in the next general elections even without PAS, said Amanah communications director Khalid Samad.
The Shah Alam MP said this is because Amanah and Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (Bersatu) will bring in enough votes to beat BN.
He based this on a rough simplified calculations he made, assuming that the opposition as Pakatan Rakyat had gotten 50,000 votes in 2013, while BN secured 45,000 votes.
Based on these figures, Khalid said in the next elections, Harapan would lose out 7,000 votes from PAS.
However, PAS splinter-party Amanah would help maintain 3,000 votes, and Bersatu will bring in a further 3,500 votes from Umno.
