KIJAL STATE ASSEMBLYMAN DATUK AHMAD SAID SACKED FROM UMNO BUT WAS APPOINTED TERENGGANU MENTERI BESAR BY PALACE


Its been widely reported that Kijal State Assemblyman, Datuk Ahmad Said has been SACKED from UMNO over the controversy of being appointed Terengganu Menteri Besar in place of Datuk Seri Idris Jusoh, who has the blessing and support of Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi.

It seems there is a serious problem arising in the State, since the Yang DiPertuan Agong is the Sultan of Terengganu. The appointment was consented by the State Royal Regency Advisory Council since the Regent is just 13 years old.

Terengganu is a rich State due to the oil reserves and the ruler and rakyat of Terengganu had expressed disappointment with the Menteri Besar and State Exco for failing to manage the State resources according to the aspirations of the people.

We need to wait and see what will follow.

But its confirm that Datuk Ahmad Said had been given the letter of appointment as Terengganu Menteri Besar by the State Royal Regency Advisory Council this morning and the swearing-in ceremony has been delayed to Wednesday.
