THE VACANT councillor seats at the Kajang Municipal Council (MPKj) and Kuala Langat Municipal Council (MPKL) have been filled.

While Ahmad Fuad Abdul Rahman filled the last seat in MPKj, Rahimah Harun and Pavithan Sri Soundararajan took their oath of office as MPKL councillors to fill two vacancies.

Ahmad Fuad was sworn in during the MPKj full board meeting yesterday, while the latter two were sworn in on Monday.

Many local authorities in Selangor have a minimum of one vacant councillor position for the 2024-2025 term.

As the sole representative of Umno among MPKj councillors, Ahmad Fuad said he would take it as a challenge to prove his capabilities.

“I carry a big responsibility to safeguard Umno’s name among my peers and the people. I cannot afford to mess up,” said the Hulu Langat Umno secretary, adding that he would embrace the new norm under the unity government.

“I hope to be given the opportunity to serve the people in zones under Dusun Tua constituency, although the vacant zone is in Kajang constituency.

“The people in Dusun Tua know me better compared to Kajang, as I work a lot with Dusun Tua assemblyman Datuk Johan Abdul Aziz, who is also from Umno,” he said when met after he was sworn in.

During MPKj’s January swearing-in ceremony for the 2024-2025 councillor line-up, 23 out of 24 councillor seats were taken with one seat allocated for Umno left vacant.

MPKj president Nazli Md Taib had then said the council was waiting for an Umno member to fill the position.

It is learnt that swearing-in ceremonies for councillors in other local authorities will take place by month-end.
