Selangor Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Amirudin Shari says he has submitted names of two assemblymen to the Sultan of Selangor, Sultan Sharafuddin Idris Shah, to fill two vacant exco portfolios.
He said a suitable date would be chosen for the two candidates to take the oath of office.
“The swearing-in ceremony will be held at Istana Alam Shah, Klang and the date will be announced either by me or the palace, ” he told reporters at the lobby of the State Legislative Assembly.
One of two vacant portfolios is state tourism and culture, Malay civilisation and heritage, after Datuk Abdul Rashid Asari of Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (Bersatu) who lost the position when the party left the Pakatan Harapan (PH) coalition.
The other portfolio, state housing and urban living, was left vacant after its committee chairman Haniza Mohamad Talha was stripped of her PKR membership. — Bernama
