IPOH: A total of eight statutory declarations (SD) in support of the new Mentri Besar signed by several assemblymen have been presented to Perak Ruler Sultan Nazrin Muizzuddin Shah.

Perak PAS commissioner Razman Zakaria said all three assemblymen from PAS presented their SD to Sultan Nazrin during the audience at Istana Kinta today (Dec 9)

"The name will be revealed by the palace. We have pledge our support as all three parties (PAS, Umno and Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia) have reached a mutual agreement," he told media after his audience with Sultan Nazrin at Istana Kinta.

Separately, another five SD were received from three Bersatu assemblymen, a Gerakan assemblyman and an independent.

Bersatu's Datuk Zainol Fadzi Paharuddin said he had presented his SD together with Datuk Nolee Ashilin Mohamad Radzi Datuk Abdul Yunus Jamhari.

"Titi Serong assemblyman Hasnul Zulkarnain Abdul Munaim presented his SD earlier," he said adding that Chenderiang assemblyman Datuk Seri Ahmad Faizal Azumu will seek an audience with the Perak Ruler shortly.

Zainol added that Gerakan's A. Sivasubramaniam and independent Paul Yong Choo Kiong also presented their SD together with him.

Earlier, Barisan Nasional, Bersatu and PAS announced they have achieved a truce amid the ongoing Perak leadership crisis and nominated Datuk Saarani Mohamad as the next Mentri Besar.

This was announced in a joint statement by Barisan secretary-general Tan Sri Annuar Musa, Bersatu secretary-general Datuk Seri Hamzah Zainuddin and PAS secretary-general Datuk Takiyuddin Hassan.

According to the statement, a consensus was reached by the three parties after a meeting held on Wednesday.
