New Selangor MB to be named after Raya, says Azmin

Selangor MB says PH will submit names of potential candidates to the Sultan of Selangor after Hari Raya Aidilfitri.

SHAH ALAM: A new Selangor menteri besar (MB) may be appointed after Hari Raya Aidilfitri.

Current Selangor MB Mohamed Azmin Ali said Selangor Pakatan Harapan would meet next week to discuss potential candidates before submitting a name to the Sultan of Selangor, Sultan Sharafuddin Idris Shah.

“Once we have discussed and decided on the candidate, we will submit the name to His Majesty for consent, probably it will all be done after Aidilfitri,” he told reporters at the Sultan of Selangor’s Iftar programme with the staff of Universiti Teknologi Mara here today.

A new MB has to be appointed as Sultan Sharafuddin Idris Shah has consented to let Azmin assume the economic affairs minister’s post.

However, Azmin has to remain menteri besar for the time being, until an orderly transfer of power to his successor is completed.

Meanwhile, when asked about the development of the Langat 2 Water Treatment Plant (LRA2) project, Azmin said his ministry would provide ministerial papers for the Cabinet to discuss.

He said it was for the Cabinet to review the decision to start the plant’s operation which was put on hold during the previous federal government’s administration under Barisan Nasional.

“LRA2 has long been completed and I attended a briefing on it this morning and decided to prepare the ministerial papers so that this matter will be reconsidered at Cabinet level. I am confident that the PH government will allow LRA2 to operate immediately,” he said.

Also present at the Iftar programme were Tengku Permaisuri of Selangor, Tengku Permaisuri Norashikin and the Raja Muda of Selangor, Tengku Amir Shah.
