Gerakan president Tan Sri Dr Koh Tsu Koon emphasised that the party would focus on the four parliamentary seats it could potentially win, which included defending the Simpang Renggam seat in Johor, at the 13th General Elections.
The other three were Taiping, Beruas and Teluk Intan, he added.
“We will definitely defend the Simpang Renggam seat and for that we have to work hard. We’re now preparing for Taiping. Definitely Taiping will be a focus seat,” he told reporters after the wrap-up session of the 41st Gerakan national delegates meeting, here Sunday.
According to Koh, the Taiping seat, which was given to the People’s Progressive Party in 2008, would be returned to Gerakan and Datuk Tan Lian Hoe, the party’s Youth chief had been actively working to gain the confidence and support of the voters in the area.
