Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim
PETALING JAYA: Selangor Mentri Besar Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim is believed to have agreed to step down from his post.
Khalid is expected to announce his decision to go this Wednesday, according to party insiders.
They said that PKR de facto leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim was on course to become the next Mentri Besar.
A by-election in a state seat is expected to be held to enable Anwar to join the Selangor Legislative Assembly and take over the top job.
Khalid, who has been under heavy fire from his party over his mishandling of the PKNS issue and the JAIS bible raid, agreed to the dramatic move at a meeting with Anwar on Sunday.
Urgent discussions are still taking place behind the scenes but Anwar is believed to have secured the endorsement of his DAP and PAS partners for the changeover.
