In a statement, the EC stressed that any candidate who wants to contest under a PKR ticket or use its logo is free to do so provided the party agrees to it.

“The EC would like to explain that it has no objections to the opposition’s wish to use PKR’s symbol/logo in the 14th general election.”

This means that candidates from all four Pakatan Harapan parties, PKR, DAP, Amanah and Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia are free to contest under the PKR banner.

The EC was previously reported as saying it must approve the use of PKR’s logo by all of the pact’s candidates, before backtracking on its remarks.

PH chairman Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad had claimed that his pact had tried to consult with the EC on the matter, without success.

On April 7, Dr Mahathir and other PH leaders announced that all candidates from the pact’s four parties will contest under the PKR logo on May 9.
