"It is a seat that has to be won with a good plan and strategy that can convince the constituents. The BN can take Seremban but MCA, which is contesting the seat, has to work hard," he said.
The Seremban constituency has six state constituencies within it, namely Lenggeng, Nilai, Lobak, Temiang, Sikamat and Ampangan. Ampangan and Lenggeng are held by Umno, Sikamat by PKR and Nilai, Lobak and Temiang by DAP.
Mohamad, who is the menteri besar and State Umno Liaison Committee chairman, said the Seremban seat had swung back and forth between the DAP and BN. The seat, which was created in 1974, is now held by Anthony Loke Siew Fook of the DAP.
