PETALING JAYA: PKR, reacting to news that the new Selangor Menteri Besar will be sworn in on Tuesday, is seeking an audience with the Sultan of Selangor.
In a brief statement released late today, PKR Secretary-General Saifuddin Nasution Ismail said the party’s Political Bureau met today over “new developments pertaining to the appointment of a new Menteri Besar for Selangor.”
He said the party’s stand was that the support of the majority of state assembly members for the candidacy of Wan Azizah Ismail had not changed.
PKR was therefore seeking an audience with the Sultan to “get his advice” on the matter, he added.
The statement stressed the party’s loyalty to the Sultan as well as to the Constitution of the State of Selangor.
