WILL Kuala Lumpur get a new mayor next month? Wait and see, says Federal Territories Minister Datuk Seri Dr Shahidan Kassim.
He said this when asked if the contract of the current mayor Datuk Seri Mahadi Che Ngah would be extended for another two years.
"It will be two weeks before the current term expires.
"There is plenty of time before that," he said during a press conference at the 13th International Conference on World Class Sustainable Cities in Kuala Lumpur on Tuesday (Sept 13).
The present mayor took over from his predecessor Datuk Seri Nor Hisham Ahmad Dahlan who left the helm of Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) on Oct 31, 2020.
When pressed on the matter, Shahidan sidestepped the question by saying DBKL would continue to provide topmost service to city folk.
He gave the recent series of downpours as examples, saying DBKL personnel were working hard to prevent flash floods.
"Nowadays, the weather is unpredictable.
"Whenever it rains, I will call the DBKL operation centre to ensure they attend to the issue immediately," he added.
