Shahidan, who is also Arau MP, said Umno president Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi has the right to appoint whoever is most suitable for the post.
"Whatever it is, I thank the president (Ahmad Zahid) for his confidence in me all this while.
"The president has made his decision, so we will abide by this decision. It's just that we have not received any official information except from the media statements," he told a press conference here Saturday (April 24) night.
Ahmad Zahid in a statement informed that Perlis Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Azlan Man has been appointed Perlis Umno liaison committee chief to replace Shahidan, effective Saturday. - Bernama
