Datuk Seri Mohamaed Khaled Noordin has been moved to the state seat of Permas while Datuk Nur Jazlan Mohamed stays in the Pulai parliamentary seat.
Their names were announced during the unveiling of Barisan candidates in Johor.
There was a huge thundreous applause and shouts when Ghani was announced as the candidate.
Ghani, when met, said that he was relieved but there was 20 days to go.
At least three seats have not been announced - the Tanjung Piai parliament seat and the state seats of Senai and Pekan Nenas.
They are all MCA seats and were expected to be announced soon.
A Barisan official said the delay was due to possible last-minute changes to the candidates list.
