Now, will the Selangor PKR and DAP state executive council members resign or will they be willing to take orders from the MB whom their parties describe as corrupted and not fit to remain as the MB of Selangor?
The Malaysian Insider reported that:
Selangor Menteri Besar Tan Sri Abdul Khalid Ibrahim said today that executive council members (exco) who were unhappy about working with him were free to resign.
He said PAS had already announced that its four exco members would continue working in the state government under him, and added that this figure was enough to continue with the exco even if the remaining six PKR and DAP exco members stepped down.
But he added that he would interview the state executive counsellors tomorrow to find out if they were still willing to work under him.
“If they feel, if it’s in their own conscience that they will not be a part of the menteri besar’s team, then I think it’s best for them not to continue,” he told a press conference at the state secretariat building today.
He said that as menteri besar, he had the authority to recommend to the sultan that the exco line-up be changed, but added the exco should decide for themselves if they wished to step down. – August 11, 2014.
