Dr M says Harapan has more than 112 seats, claims EC refusing to sign form

GE14 | Pakatan Harapan chairperson Dr Mahathir Mohamad has claimed that the coalition has won more than the required 112 parliament seats required to form the federal government.

Speaking at a packed press conference at the Sheraton Hotel in Petaling Jaya, he also claimed that Harapan has captured six states - Penang, Selangor, Malacca, Negeri Sembilan, Johor and Kedah.

"We need 112 seats to form the federal government.

"It would seem now we have achieved more than that and their (BN's) number is far less," he added.

He also said Harapan hopes to secure more parliament seats from Sabah to form the federal government.

Mahathir earlier alleged that the Election Commission is delaying the announcement of the official results by refusing to sign the Form 14.

He also claimed that BN chairperson Najib Abdul Razak was being backed by certain authorities, and called on them to put the nation ahead of any individual.

"They should come to their senses. Especially the police and the armed forces," he said.

Mahathir further stressed that Malaysians would retaliate if Najib declares emergency rule.
