TAN SRI KHALID SWORN IN AS SELANGOR MENTERI BESAR


The Sultan of Selangor Sultan Sharafuddin Idris Shah presented Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim the instrument of office to allow the PKR secretary-general to assume his new role as Selangor Mentri Besar at the Istana Bukit Kayangan today.
Tan Sri Khalid has 9 days to form his team of Exco members who will administer the State.
Although initially there were controversies on the appointment of a Deputy Menteri Besar, it is reported that the Palace has relaxed its ruling that a Malay need to be appointed.
It is the wishes of the Selangor rakyat that Teresa Kok who had secured a major victory be appointed to this post, making way for gender equality in the present Opposition administration of fair and able governance.
