NUSAJAYA: The Johor Housing and Real Property Board Bill 2014 will be amended to include a provision that the Sultan is to act on the advice of the Mentri Besar.
The amendment, which reads “role of the Johor Ruler is on the advice of the Mentri Besar”, was announced by Mentri Besar Datuk Mohamed Khaled Nordin during the state assembly sitting here, Sunday.
Khaled said that other clauses in the Bill which mention the Johor Ruler would be changed to “state authorities”.
The Bill is expected to be tabled at the state assembly sitting on Monday.
It had been reported that the Bill would empower the Sultan to appoint Johor Housing and Real Property Board members, oversee its accounts and also dissolve the board.
