DR AHMAD Fadzli Ahmad Tajuddin has been appointed the Klang Municipal Council (MPK) president for a two-year term.

He is also the National Institute of Public Administration management development and innovation cluster head.

In an official visit to the municipality on Thursday (April 9), Ahmad, 48, gave out face masks and basic necessities to local councillors and MPK’s Islamic Workers Welfare Association at the Dewan Hamzah, a community hall opposite the council’s headquarters, on Jalan Perbandaran.

He held his first meeting with MPK heads of department and he was briefed on the current Covid-19 situation and the council’s role in stemming the disease.

He advised residents to wear masks, use alcohol-based hand sanitisers or latex gloves to protect themselves.

“Social distancing, being indoors and frequent hand-washing are important. I urge all Klangites to work from home as Covid-19 cases continue to increase and cause deaths.

Based on the Health Ministry’s data, Klang district has some 219 cases, ” he said.

The Ipoh-born Ahmad, who holds a doctorate in Business Administration, fills a post that had been left vacant for three months by Datuk Mohamad Yasid Bidin, who was transferred out in mid-November 2019.

Yasid is now the Community Development Department (Kemas) director-general.

Council secretary Elya Marini Darmin stood in as acting president in the interim.
